If you’re a “Twilight” fan, get ready to flip out. Remember tiny Renesmee Cullen, the daughter of Edward Cullen and Bella Swan?

Actress Mackenzie Christine Foy, who played the adorable little girl in the 2011 and 2012 releases, is now all grown up. She was born on November 10, 2000, in Los Angeles, California.

How old was Mackenzie Foy when filming Twilight?

Both films were shot back-to-back as one project. Filming commenced on July 9, 2010, when Mackenzie Foy was 9-years-old.

She turned 12 just days before the premiere of The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 on November 16, 2012.

“Being on Twilight, that was my first film. So everything I learned on that set, I was learning for the first time,” Foy told ET at the Nutcracker premiere in November 2018.

“That was a film that I really knew, and understood what a film is and how it worked. So anything that I did in that process really prepared me for the rest of my career.”

“I do. I do try to. They were just amazing people,” she said about keeping in touch with her Twilight parents. “I have so many wonderful memories just working with them and hanging out with them. So I do try to talk to them.”

Yes, we know. Our jaws dropped as well.

Mackenzie, who now easily towers over her on-screen mother Kristen Stewart, moved on from her tiny vampire frocks to an all-out designer bonanza. Her beautiful pale skin glowed against a blush-toned two-piece Miu Miu outfit with crystal studs.

With the help of celebrity go-to stylists Jill Lincoln and Jordan Johnson, the actress polished the youthful look with a pair of Miu Miu embellished sandals and a Prada clutch.

The teenager had been laying low since her last project “Interstellar” in 2015. We assume she stayed off the radar to focus on her studies or to live a normal teenage life.
