New Faces Fridays: Tracey Heggins talks about staying in shape on the Breaking Dawn set in new fansites interview

August 10, 2012

It’s week four of New Faces Fridays! Today the the Twilight fansites are introducing you to Tracey Heggins, who plays the quiet, but intense Senna of the Amazonian coven in “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Part 2.”

Tracey Heggins: Hi!  How are you guys?


Tracey: I am excited to talk to you guys!

Q: We just saw the posters of you and Zafrina.  The other actors have talked about what they first thought when they saw themselves.  What was your first reaction when you saw the hair and the make up, and the outfit and the eyes?

Tracey: Roar! (sound)  That is exactly what I thought! Whoa!  This has an earthy, sexy quality to it, so I was all for it. It’s very exciting!

Q: Speaking of what you look like… You are baring a lot in your outfit.  I’m wondering if you had to diet or work out? What was your regiment?

Tracey: Yeah!  I have to work out.  I’m a hippy girl… I have hips and curves. Literally, when I had the fitting, I had a King Size Snicker bar in my purse. After I had seen the outfit, on my way out, I dropped it into the trash can.


I was, like, Oh, no, no, no, no!  But yeah, I do a lot of yoga. And, on set it was easy to be disciplined because Kellan Lutz is up there working out all day long, and the rest of them were fighting to get to the gym before shoot time. So, you know, it was a lot of camaraderie at the gym because we were all on camera.
