I have been fired before. In fact, I have been fired several times. It just happens in life. With that being said, most of mine were from jobs I had in high school or college where sleeping and drinking and swimming in jello sounded more appealing than going to work. I can't imagine what it must be like for Rachelle Lefevre to have been in the first two installments of Twilight and then get fired from the third. I mean this is the biggest franchise on the planet right now and one day you are a part of it and then next you are gone. Sucks.
Granted, it wasn't the biggest role in the movie, but it wasn't an extra or a one line appearance either. Summit fired her because they said there was a filming conflict with her schedule. The way it worked was Rachelle got offered a part in a movie and she was needed for 10 days for that movie. Eclipse was a three month shoot. Summit said tough and fired her. It turns out though they didn't film any of her parts on the days she was making the other movie. They wanted to replace her. So, Rachelle sat at home last night while the rest of the cast and her replacement in the 3rd movie went and watched the premiere of the 2nd one.
Officially Rachelle blamed a portion of her absence on the fact her dog was sick, but she also fessed up that being fired was too much and she couldn't handle being there. I don't blame her. The good news is her character gets killed off in the 3rd installment.
