Rachelle Lefevre has voiced her "support" for the new TWILIGHT movie - insisting she still plans to see the film even though she was dropped from the cast.
The redhead plays villainous Victoria in the first two installments of the vampire franchise, but was left "stunned" and "deeply hurt" when studio executives at Summit Entertainment announced she wouldn't be appearing in the third film, The Twilight Saga: Eclipse.
Producers claimed Lefevre failed to tell them in advance that she had signed up to star in an independent movie and that shooting on the project would overlap with production on Eclipse - so they replaced her with Bryce Dallas Howard.
But Lefevre insists she isn't holding a grudge and is happy to see the movie upon its release in July (10).
She tells E! Online, "Why wouldn't I see the movie? They're amazing people and they're great kids and they're doing awesome work. Why shouldn't they be supported?"
