Ryan Robbins’ Daughter Auditions For Renesmee

Actor Ryan Robbins, probably best known as a part of the Sanctuary cast, tweeted that his daughter had her first ever audition for the role of Renesmee. This is the latest in several verified reports of children auditioning for the role. Others have included children with a modeling background and a cousin of Bronson Pelletier’s.

In each of the cases, when photos have been available, the children appear to be between 4-6 years old based on photos.  Ryan Robbins’ daughter, according to the IMDB, was born in 2004 making her 6-years-old (give or take based on her exact birthdate). Given child labor laws and the practicality of getting two-year-olds to act on cue with any degree predictability, it would seem that the 4-6 year old  range might be what’s needed to capture emotion in certain scenes, even if it is beyond the two-year-old appearance in the books.

Of course, there is also speculation that they could use a 4-6 year-old child, and then via Benjamin Button type technology, alter her appearance to be younger.

It wouldn’t be the first time when obvious age ranges of characters vary greatly from the book. Both Peter Facinelli and Elizabeth Reaser appear well into their late 30′s on screen, whereas their book counterparts appear to be 23 and 26 respectively.

If Ryan Robbins’ daughter is cast, they can always go to fellow Sanctuary cast member Chris Heyrerdahl for Twilight Saga advice.

  2. Hey, I really wanted my daughter to audition for that part. Guess parts like that always go to an insider. Stinks! My daughter has the most beautiful big brown eyes!

    • Are you stupid? Do you not realize that you need an agent in order to be able to go on an audition? Don’t say that they made an exception with the native americans because na actors are harder to find. Little while girls need agents. Dumbass.

      • I am no “Dumbass” & my daughter does have an agent. Thanks for the advice. And she has been on film. So, maybe you should cool your jets about the name calling. And to the people who don’t have agents, it is still possible to get parts in movies, its just really hard without one.
        And whats with all the frickin’ name calling and the mean attitude towards people. Have alittle respect for others.

        • And my point was that there are alot of very talented people trying very hard to make it in the film industry that don’t get half a chance because they don’t have the name to back it up( like Coppola or Howard). Both those women are great at what they do, but I don’t think they would have gotten half the chance if they didn’t have the family name to get them noticed. Like money begets money, fame begets fame. Anybody heard of Will Smiths kid. Oh, thats right he just starred in his first oh wait second major film. That was my point.

  3. Does anybody knows where should I go for the audition? I would like to take my daughter and have her try.

  4. PixieCullen36 says:

    My daughter just turned 3, and I think she would be PERFECT! She has blue eyes and strawberry blonde hair, but that could be fixed with CGI. Yeah right though… lol

    • I don’t know if this was mentioned to you or if you just ignored all the other posters above, BUT YOU NEED A FREAKING AGENT WOMAN! I’m so tired of people who don’t educate themselves about this industry.

      • PixieCullen36 says:

        Excuse me, but did I actually say anything about wanting my daughter to audition? I don’t believe I did. I said she would be perfect. Not that I thought she even had a chance. Read the post before you reply (and didn’t pay attention obviously) three sentences I wrote? Wow.

  5. I would like Suri Cruise to audition for the role.

  6. Awwww I can not wait to see little nessie !!

  7. why would he tweet that… it seems it should be kinda quiet..i dont know good luck anyway

  8. I think the potrayal of Carlisle and Esme is jsut right.
    they look like what 23-year-olds looked like back in their respective centuries.

  9. I wanted my daughter to audition as well… Strawberry blond Curly hair… Oh well, guess that’s Hollywood!

  10. we see her back but not her face. put a pictures of her on the internet

  11. One problem I have is that Renesmee is almost as intelligent as most adults are even when she’s little. How are they gonna portray that?

  12. Here’s one girl who (reportedly) has auditioned: http://bit.ly/bJttuv

  13. I can’t wait to see Rob & Kristen in w/ a baby. I would imagine they’ll have to hire 2 or 3 sets of Renesmee casts right? Infant, and then her getting older quickly.

  14. I guess that what happens when you know the right people in the industrie.

  15. Courtney M. says:

    Hey the parents arent stupid. they have big dreams for their daughters just like anyone would! But honestly they have to pick the role of Renesmee carefully.

  16. I am shocked and dismayed at some of the cruelty here.
    Do people need to do research? Yes.
    Is it necessary to call names and put others down? No.
    Please,let us treat one another with respect.
    If you have knowledge that you would like to share, please do so with respect and kindness.
    Let’s do all we can to make this world a better place, and be kind to other people.
    Saying kind words can lift up the heart, but unkind words can tear down someone’s life.

    I think Mr. or Mrs. name caller were the same person. lol. Kinda scary and psycho. Oh and not name calling. Just going by their lewd actions.

  18. I am not going to go off on people about this stuff, but I personally might show more respect for these mothers if I actually had it. Why respect someone who is pushing their children into having a career at under 6 years old? No less, a career that will probably end up exposing them to a whole lot of crap – drugs, sex, disappointment, body image issues – far before their time. They remind me of more socially accepted pageant mums.

    • Thanks so much for calling me a pagenat mom & showing me such great respect. I for one am not that kind of mom. My daughter does what she does and that is all. She works here and there & that is all.This is not her career & no one is “PUSHING” her to do anything. Why do people think that the parents are such hard asses & are forcing that children into a life of hell. Some kids actually enjoy performing. And not all of our kids look like some freaky Pageant adult child. And as for the sex, drugs & bad body image. You don’t need to be a child actor these days to have that problem. Just look in your local junior high or high school.

      • And lets not forget that Kristen Stewart, Taylor Lautner & Booboo Stewart all started out as child actors. And I don’t see them as drugs addict,sex crawed child actors.

  19. IsntItFunny says:

    With the right guidance and frame of mind they won’t be. I am 16, I act, have a band and oh yes I have an agent. Nothing wrong with me. Never been in trouble, smoked snorted or shot up, or had sex, because my parents did their job and I was strong willed. I chose this path and my parents supported me and guided me so if anything you’re not showing anything about these mothers but how bad of a mom you are or would be. Just crush your childs dreams and mimic their aspirations. You get a gold star right next to giving your child a push toward defiance, low selfesteem, drugs and oh yea, hating you.

    • YOu young lady are a pretty smart girl. And your parents seem to have done a great job. Keep doing what your doing kid! And well said.

  20. It is fantastic that you yourself have had a good experience in acting ‘isntitfunny’ and that was your passion, and I am sorry if it seemed I was attacking you ‘Gina L’. I may have been generalising and would like to acknowledge the fact that not all cases are limited to the reasons I listed to prove that child acting can expose children to negative things. But you should also be able to acknowledge that there are parents out there who are pushing their children into a career at a young age out of their own desire for success and living through their children. When I was young I was interested in the theatre and took some performing lessons, and at only that level was exposed to mothers that acted that way. You should also admit that children can be exposed to things far before their time. I realise that yes, in this society it is becoming impossible to not expose them to such things, I just feel that adding putting them into what can be a twisted and disappointing business on top of that might not be the best way to go.
    ‘isntitfunny’, a little dramatic aren’t we? I doubt that every child resents their mother for not pushing them towards acting at the age of 4, I can’t even remember what I was doing at the age of 4. So I wouldn’t let a 4 year old make great decisions like having a career so early, it is not like I would steal performing of any sort from them. I just think it should be a hobby before actually getting into the business, they have all the time in the world to decide what they want to do with their life, why not let them be carefree for as long as possible? as for the turning them towards drugs, I think you are just pulling at straws there as there is no plausible reason why turning them away from a career in acting at 4 would turn them towards substance abuse.

    • Nosilla, Thanks. I do know what you’re talking about. I just got alittle defensive because on an earlier post someone called me a “Dumbass” for no good reason. They have no idea who I am or what I do. So it just got me pretty pissed. And yes, I totally see your point. Some parents do push their kids way too much in the acting & modeling industry. And those parents scare the hell out of me. Thanks agian & nice debating with you. Cheers!

  21. @ Anne and Spieldberg. Would you two stop with the negative and down right mean comments. I know you may not agree with child hood acting but believe it or not it is a lifestyle choice for some families and it is not because the child is forced into it, some really like it and it’s a healthy hobby. As for the mean things you are typing to mothers who don’t know about the industry it’s just not right. These people are not dumb or idiotic, they just don’t know, inform them politely, or step away from the keyboard. And as for getting a child in the industry young will get them introduced to the wong path at an early age is crazy. Children from any walk of life can get on the wrong path and ultimately it’s up to the parent to raise their children right that way they have the knowledge they need to handle themselves in the world regardless what temptations they come across.

  22. leave the moms alone, since when is a mother a “Stupid, Dumbass” for thinking their child is beautiful. Of course they probably wont get the chance to audition, because if ever child, whos mum said they looked just like renesmee, auditioned for the part, BD woulden’t be made for a LONG time.
