Summit Entertainment announced today Tracey Heggins, Judi Shekoni and Toni Trucks have been added to the cast of ‘The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn.’

Heggins will play Senna and Judi Shekoni as Zafrina as part of the The Amazon Coven, while Trucks will play Mary, an American nomadic vampire.

Among the oldest vampires in the world, Senna and Zafrina are descendants of an ancient Amazonian tribe. They have lived outside of civilization for centuries and therefore make no attempt to keep up a human facade. Though they drink human blood, the Amazons have long been allies of Carlisle.

Heggins is known for her role in the independent film, ‘Medicine for Melancholy,’ while British born Shekoni was featured in UK’s No. 1 TV show ‘Eastenders‘ and has done episode work on various TV series such as ‘Brothers and Sisters,’ and ‘NCIS.’

Trucks was featured in ‘Musics and Lyrics‘ with Drew Barrymore and co-stars with Essence Atkins and Lamman Rucker in ‘N-Secure,’ which opens on Oct.15.

The next chapter of ‘The Twilight Saga‘ will be released as two separate films with the first of the two slated to be released in theatres on November 18, 2011 and the second coming to theatres on November 16, 2012.

The project, based on the fourth novel in author Stephenie Meyer‘s “Twilight” series, is currently being written by Melissa Rosenberg with Wyck Godfrey, Karen Rosenfelt and Stephenie Meyer producing.

The ‘Twilight’ film series stars Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson and tells the story of 17-year-old Bella Swan who moves to the small town of Forks, Washington to live with her father, and becomes drawn to Edward Cullen, a pale, mysterious classmate who seems determined to push her away. But neither can deny the attraction that pulls them together…even when Edward confides that he and his family are vampires.

The action-packed, modern day vampire love story ‘Twilight,’ the first film in the series, was released in theatres on November 21, 2008 to a blockbuster reception. The second installment of the film franchise, ‘The Twilight Saga: New Moon’ was released November 20, 2009 and the third installment, ‘The Twilight Saga: Eclipse’ was released June 30, 2010.
