Now here's a role Vanessa Hudgens
would like to sink her teeth into.
The High School Musical
star has auditioned for the part of werewolf Leah Clearwater in the Twilight
sequel New Moon,
according to Ashley Green, who played Alice in Twilight.
"I think she'd be great," Greene tells MTV.
As Leah, Hudgens, 20, would be a foil to Taylor Lautner, who will reprise his role
as werewolf Jacob Black.
In the Stephenie Meyer novels, Leah is her pack's lone female werewolf – and a jilted one, at that. Unlike Hudgens's Gabriella in HSM
, Leah experiences heartbreak, being ditched by classmate (and fellow werewolf) Sam Uley.
