London: Kristen Stewart will face a new love rival in the upcoming ‘Twilight’ movies.

MyAnna Buring has just been cast in a leading role for the next two movies – ‘Breaking Dawn’ Part 1 and 2. She will play Tanya, a vampire with a crush on Robert Pattinson’s character Edward Cullen.

Swedish-born MyAnna, 26, has just starred in the BBC1 detective drama ‘Inspector George Gently’, but is being hailed as the next bright young thing in Hollywood now that she has landed the role in ‘Twilight’.

“I’m so thrilled I haven’t come down from the ceiling yet. We start filming next month,” the Daily Mail quoted MyAnna as saying.

Kristen, 20 – who plays Bella in the vampire films – may want to keep an eye on MyAnna, who is said to socialise in similar circles to the Barnes-born actor.
