One new plot twist involves the storyline that (Spoiler alert) Selene wakes up from a cryogenically frozen state to discover that she has a teenage daughter, Eve, who is part Lycan and part vampire. Eve is played by India Eisley ("The Secret Life of an American Teenager"), who auditioned on the first day of casting and overcame stiff competition.
After her audition, Eisley was getting refreshments in a Santa Monica coffee shop when none other than Beckinsale and Wiseman walked in. When Beckinsale saw Eisley, "She turned to Len, and said, 'Look at that girl,'" says Eisley. "'You should go ask her if she wants to be in the movie. She's like a mini me.' And he told her, 'We just saw her audition tape.'"
