For several months we’ve awaited to hear who would be playing the roles of the werewolf siblings Leah and Seth Clearwater from the La Push reservation in The Twilight Saga: Eclipse. There was even a month-long internet open casting call looking for two young female and male Native Americans to star alongside Taylor Lautner in the third film for the Twilight saga. Summit Entertainment recently sent out a press release announcing 28 year-old Julia Jones (Hell Ride, ER) as the scowling Leah Clearwater, the only female member of the wolf pack and BooBoo Stewart, 15 as Seth Clearwater.
You may be familiar with BooBoo as a member of the Walt Disney Records signed musical group, T-Squad. The pop group was regularly played on Radio Disney after having songs on the soundtracks of the Disney Channel Original Movie Jump In! and the special edition re-release of Peter Pan. They also toured with Miley Cyrus and the Jonas Brothers in 2008 on Miley’s Best of Both Worlds Tour. Before being cast in Eclipse, BooBoo has been performing with his band Echos of Angels.
Fun Fact: BooBoo and Taylor Lautner (Jacob Black), both martial artists, have known each other for five years!
Are you happy with the choices for Leah and Seth Clearwater?
