kristen prout cast in eclipse

Another young actress has been sucked into The Twilight Saga Eclipse. According to MTV another casting announcement was made for the film via costar Jackson Rathbone who plays, Jasper. Former Kyle XY actress Kirsten Prout will play Lucy in the the third film, and will work closely with Rathbone and his character.

Mild spoilers may ensue, so if you haven’t read the book this would be a good time to stop reading. Lucy will appear in several flashbacks in the film, as a vampire who has a lot to do with Jasper’s origin story.

“A former Confederate soldier during the Civil War, Jasper was “born” when he encountered a vampire named Maria (Catalina Sandino Moreno), who enlisted him into her growing vampire army. Jasper ended up turning on his creator, along with two of her soldiers, one of whom is Lucy.”

It’s good to see another Kyle XY alum getting some big budget feature film work. We previously reported on Prout’s former co-star Jaimie Alexander landing a role in Marvel’s Thor, and now this. Before her TV gig, Prout could be seen in the comic book adaptation Electra, playing the young girl the assassin was sent to kill.
