Mackenzie is 9 years old. She will turn 10 on November 10th. She has experience in both print work and television. Her television resume includes appearances on â€œFlash Forwardâ€ and â€œTil Deathâ€.

Itâ€™s not clear how â€œBreaking Dawnâ€ will portray the rapid aging of Renesmee, but sources have told Entertainment Weekly that a special effect in which Foyâ€™s face would be digitally transferred onto the face of a younger child might be used. Another, younger child might be used to play the role as well.
