You may never have heard of model Noot Seear but her looks will be well familiar to the fashion folk among you, who will have seen the 25-year-old Canadian strut her stuff on the catwalks for the likes of Alexander Wang and Proenza Schouler at New York Fashion Week and pose for a series of Chanel and Pantene print ads.
The striking beauty is stepping up her career and appearing in the second installment of the Twilight films, entitled New Moon, where she will play a cliquey vampire named Heidi who runs in the exclusive Volturi circle. And with those killer green peepers and razor-sharp cheekbones, it's unsurprising her main talent is luring human prey.
New Moon director Chris Weitz told WWD: "We wanted someone who had an unearthly and unlikely beauty, but could also convey humour and menace. It's rare to find a stunningly attractive person who also happens to have the ability to act." According to reports, Weitz also considered Beverly Hills 90210 actress AnnaLynne McCord for the role.
Seear, who revealed she has already picked out a Balmain frock to wear to her first ever film premiere, says of the recent career move: "I've always been biting at the bit to get into this industry." She joins Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattison in The Twilight Saga: New Moon, out later this year.
