Michelle Trachtenberg Revealed She Could Have Starred In 'Twilight'

Michelle Trachtenberg had tangoed with vampires in the past, but, apparently, there was talk of her joining the big leagues. That's right, Twihards, we're saying what you think we're saying.

The 26-year-old actress told Us Weekly that she could have landed a role in the "Twilight" franchise.

"There was definitely interest here and there because there's only so few pale girls in Hollywood," she joked.

But physical attributes aside, Trachtenberg had been chummy with the director of the very first "Twilight" flick.

"I've known [director] Catherine Hardwicke since the movie Thirteen," she said. "I was actually supposed to star in that, but I was on Buffy at the time."

She said that, ultimately, the reason we never got to see Trachtenberg instead of Kristen Stewart or Ashley Greene came down to timing.

"I guess schedules never worked out," she explained.

While she said that she's "already done the vampire thing" and that she never wonders how her life would have changed if she starred in "Twilight" because then she wouldn't be "living in the moment."

Still, after "Breaking Dawn" earned over $500 million worldwide, that lost opportunity has got to sting.

What do you think? Could you imagine Trachtenberg in "Twilight?"
