Add America Ferrera to the long list of actresses who are supposedly up for a role in the Twilight sequel New Moon.

Following in the footsteps of Vanessa Hudgens and Dakota Fanning, the 24-year-old Ugly Betty actress has reportedly auditioned for the movie. Ferrera tried out for the part of Emily Young, fiancée to Sam Uley and second cousin to Leah Clearwater.

“I got to audition for New Moon today! For the role of Emily,” Crazy Days and Nights quotes the outspoken actress and snappy dresser as saying. “The casting director, you fans of the book will be glad to know, has read the books and loves them. And you can tell. His direction was spot on for the character. I loved the books. I would so love to be in the movie!!!”

Seems like a perfectly reasonable match. After all, Ferrera has had experience interacting with monstrous characters before.

America Young Auditions For Role of Emily

January 23, 2009 · Comments

in Casting, Emily Young

America Young as Emily in New Moon

America Young, who has had supporting roles in movies I’ve never heard of such as The Dead Undead, Point of Contact, and Ultimate Weapon, has auditioned for the role of Emily in New Moon, according to a post on the blog of (her?) entertainment lawyer–

Oh!!! And I got to audition for New Moon today! For the role of Emily. The casting director, you fans of the book will be glad to know, has read the books and loves them. And you can tell. His direction was spot on for the character. I loved the books. I would so love to be in the movie!!!

I’ve never heard of America Young, but if this picture is any indication, I think the part-Native American actress could be a good fit for Emily. What do you guys think?
