After Fil-am Michael Copon lost the role of the werewolf Jacob Black because Taylor Lautner decided to come back, Twilighters are now in the look-out on who will play the werewolf Leah Clearwater. The said female werewolf is Jacob Black’s feisty and heartbroken frienemy in the novels.
Ashley Greene, who plays Alice Cullen in Twilight, revealed that High School Musical star Vanessa Hudgens auditioned for the role of Leah Clearwater. Ashley said that it would be great if Vanessa will be part of New Moon.
Vanessa Hudgens is already a star in her own right, two top-rating movie made for television (HSM 1 and 2) and a box-office hit (HSM 3) under her belt. Her inclusion in New Moon will boost the popularity of the Vampire franchise even more! Besides, Vanessa already has a huge fanbase which is very much the same demographic as the Twilighters, she will surely add more box-office potential in New Moon.
