There are plenty of female vampires to choose from in the Twilight saga, from the nice gals in the Cullen clan to the nasty ones in the Volturi, the vampire ruling body. But the one to be reckoned with is Victoria, the flame-haired vamp who spends the first three movies hunting down the Cullens and their new human pal Bella (Kristen Stewart). Evading both the vampires of Team Edward and the werewolves of Team Jacob, she sprints and leaps through the forests of the Pacific Northwest with feral, feline grace. She’s also charismatic enough to lead a stampeding army of strong, wild, newly-made vampires.
We liked Rachelle Lefevre as the initial Victoria, as her ethereal appearance made her look especially otherworldly and beyond human. When a scheduling conflict led producers to replace her with Bryce Dallas Howard in the third film, we were skeptical, but Howard was suitably scary. Maybe not as scary as Howard was in The Help, but then, no one made Victoria eat a pie made of excrement, either.
