Rachelle Lefevre: Grateful for Fan Support, Excited for New Moon

by at . Comments

It's been a few weeks since Twilight Saga fans were hit with the news that Rachelle Lefevre had lost the role of Victoria in Eclipse.

The actress has been replaced by Bryce Dallas Howard in the franchise, as the movie studio cited a scheduling conflict for the suspicious move.

Fans were outraged over the decision, as was the actress. But she told Extra this week that she's feeling a lot better; and she has numerous supporters to thank for it.

"I'm on Twitter and I remember opening up my Twitter," she said. "Somehow, in 140 characters, my fans managed to write me things that were so unbelievable...  A bunch of fans from all over the world made me a tribute video. This girl from Australia collected stuff from all over the world. I mean they've just been incredible. I wrote on Twitter: 'If I could travel the world and hug you all personally, I would' - because they really carried me through."

As for New Moon, Lefevre can't wait to see the finished product.

While Victoria scarcely figures in the book, writer Melissa Rosenberg beefed up the character's prominence for the second Twilight sequel.

"They wrote a lot of fun stuff for me from Twilight to New Moon," the actress said. "In the book, Victoria is not that present and they really did their best. Melissa told me that she loved writing Victoria and there was great room for that. So she wrote a lot of stuff for me. I really hope it makes it into the film."

Do you care about Lefevre's firing?
