“Enter Maggie Grace, whose gorge fashion spread in the December issue of Glamour shows the 27-year-old blond beauty modeling the sweetest dresses you ever did see. If you don’t recognize her from her days as Shannon on Lost, you’ll be hearing from her soon: Maggie’s just landed the role of Irina, vegetarian vampire and cousin of Edward Cullen in Breaking Dawn, the final installment of the Twilight Saga.

Maggie’s style has come a long way from her fashion roots (“that awful center-zig-zag-part hairstyle and pineapple-yellow culottes,” she admits on page 269): she’s now front row at New York Fashion Week and burgeoning trendsetter (especially once she hits all those Twilight red carpets!

Maggie Grace Co-Stars in Faster

If you want to see Maggie Grace on the big screen before Breaking Dawn you have a chance in November when Faster open. Maggie Grace Co-stars along with Dwayne Johnson (AKA The Rock).

According to Collider:

“Dwayne Johnson is looking to push into more action after a slew of kid-friendly flicks and CBS Films’ Faster is his re-entry into the genre. George Tillman, Jr. (Soul Food, Barbershop) will direct the hard-nosed revenge flick, written by Joe and Tony Gayton (Bulletproof). The flick has already received an R rating and the new clip certainly shows its violent and sexy side.”

Maggie appears prominently starting at the 1:24 mark through the end. The trailer has been rated R for violence. Personal opinion, nothing too, too gory but certainly images of violence involving guns and a knife, so click at your own risk.

The Denali Coven: Vegetarian Vampire Makeovers

Lexicon reader Adonis has transformed our latest cast members into vegetarian vampires. Click on their images to see them full-sized.

The Denali Coven: What You Need to Rent to Watch

So now that we have the entire Denali coven officially announced, here’s a listing of what we think are each person’s best roles.  We were actually pretty familiar with the women because Laura is a fan of Brit TV, LOST, and foreign film. Thanks to everyone on Twitter who gave us details about Christian Camargo, because we didn’t know much before and now he’s at the top of our rental queue this weekend!

Like the Cullens, the Denali Coven members are the only other vegetarian vampires. They are all strong willed and powerful. So check out some of their more famous, strong-willed roles below. (photo combo below created by Kary65 on Twitter)

First up is Christian Camargo. Christian is no acting lightweight. He regularly performs in live theater. Most recently his Orlando in As You Like, cast opposite his wife, (sorry ladies he’s married) won rave reviews. He also has a double connection to Summit/Twilight. He’s worked on Dexter co-written by Melissa Rosenberg, and he starred in the Academy Award Picture of the Year 2009, The Hurt Locker. Key to rent this weekend is Dexter Season 1 (Melissa Rosenberg is one of the writers) where he plays Rudy Cooper, better known as the menacing villain the Ice Truck Killer.

Next we have Maggie Grace who is best known for her appearance on LOST as Shannon. Shannon definitely has that edge that Irina needs. Check out her audition for the part on LOST on YouTube. For rentals this weekend you can check out LOST season 1, but if you want the film route go for Murder in Greenwich and Jane Austen Book Club. She’s also in Taken with Liam Neeson, but she plays more of a victim in that one.

MyAnna Buring is a regular on British TV. It took me (Laura) a second to recognize her because in a lot of her roles she’s more of a dirty than a platinum blonde of her headshots. Two keys show to see her in are Dr. Who the season 2 episode called The impossible planet. Definitely the kick-butt heroine in that one! Also good is Midsummer Murders (great series, hard to go wrong there,  but I haven’t seen this particular episode) the episode called Midsummer Life.

Casey LaBow is probably best remembered from CSI where she played a needy girl with daddy issues who becomes attached to Mac. For rental you want Forbidden Fruit and Dead Inside season 4 and No Good Deed season 5. Her Twilight connection is being in Skateland with Ashley Greene.

Mia Maestro who is from Argentina is best know for Alias where she played Nadia Santos from 2004-2006. As far as English language film, there’s the remake of Poseidon. If you don’t mind the subtitles, or are fluent in Spanish you want to see The Motorcycle Diaries.

Maggie Grace Vampire Makeover

Lexicon reader Adonis who did the Rami Malek vampire makeover is treating us to another one. This time she did newly cast Maggie Grace as veggie vamp Irina from the Denali Coven.

Maggie Grace Cast as Irina in Breaking Dawn

Gossip Cop has the scoop. Given the description it has to be Irina.

“Her “Twilight Saga” character is a member of the Denali coven who blames the Cullen clan for the death of her lover.”

Most people will probably remember Maggie from LOST where she starred as Shannon.
