Biography

Like many famous movie villains, actress Rachelle Lefevre received an enormous fan following after playing a vengeful vampire in "Twilight" (2008). The film was a monster hit, thanks in large part to the millions of die-hard fans who propelled its young cast out of obscurity and onto Hollywood's A-list. Already an accomplished feature film and television actress when she was still in her twenties, Lefevre studied savage lionesses of the desert in order to accurately portray the deliciously evil vampire Victoria in the movie and its 2009 sequel, "The Twilight Saga: New Moon." Yet nothing could have prepared the actress for the outpouring of support she received from the "Twilight" fan community after her role was recast due to scheduling conflicts in "The Twilight Saga: Eclipse" (2010), the third film in the franchise. While the fan petitions did little to sway the studio's decision to maintain Lefevre as Victoria, her portrayal in the first two films remained one of the most unforgettable and raw performances of any villain - male or female - ever seen on the big screen.

Bonus Trivia

.

In July 2009, it was revealed that Bryce Dallas Howard, the daughter of director Ron Howard, was being brought in to replace actress Rachelle Lefevre in "Eclipse," the third film in the "Twilight" saga. Summit Entertainment's reason for the decision was scheduling conflicts. Lefevre criticized Summit Entertainment's decision to recast her role in the third film, saying that her role in the upcoming "Barney's Version" would have only caused a 10-day overlap. "Summit said they had a conflict during those 10 days and would not accommodate me," she said. "Given the length of filming for 'Eclipse,' never did I fathom I would lose the role... I am greatly saddened that I will not get to complete my portrayal of Victoria for the 'Twilight' audience."

.

Lefevre donated US$100 to Susan G. Komen for The Cure, a breast cancer charity, for every 10,000 people who follow her on Twitter.

.

In Aug. 2009, the actress launched an eBay auction for the charity School On Wheels, which provides tutoring to homeless children in Southern California.
