Noot Seear is no stranger to playing a vamp, at least where the fashion community is concerned. The 25-year-old Canadian model has spent the last 12 years on the catwalk for designers such as Alexander Wang and Proenza Schouler.

This fall, she’ll make her film debut in “New Moon,” the much-anticipated second installment in the “Twilight” series, which hits theaters November 20. Seear is cast in the role of Heidi, a member of an elite group of vampires known as the Volturi. Her special talent: hunting human prey.

nootseearbHeidi is the vampire who brings the Volturi humans to eat and is known as not only a “fisher” but “bait” because of the way she dressed. She is described as gorgeous and statuesque with long, lustrous mahogany hair and long legs. It is stated that, like Rosalie Hale, her beauty is exceptional and unforgettable. Perfect role for a model

“We wanted someone who had an unearthly and unlikely beauty, but could also convey humor and menace,” explains director Chris Weitz, who reportedly also considered AnnaLynne McCord of “90210” before eventually settling on Seear. “It’s rare to find a stunningly attractive person who also happens to have the ability to act.”

Born Renata Seear, she left her native Vancouver for New York City at 13-years-old after being discovered by a talent scout. She booked the Calvin Klein show within a week and according to Seear, “And that was it. I wasn’t going back to Canada.”

Twelve years later, Seear has a portfolio full of high-profile gigs, including print ads for Chanel, Yves Saint Laurent, Pantene Pro-V… and Playboy. In May 2008, Noot posed totally nude for French Playboy in a racy photoshoot. French Playboy is far classier than the American counterpart, with photos are that are more art and fashion focused (see the NSFW photos below).

Seear is as excited about the film’s debut as the franchise’s cult fans. She’s already picked out her dress for the premiere (Balmain) and is anxiously awaiting her upcoming Heidi action figure. And the model, who’s already signed up for two more “Twilight” installments, shows no signs of slowing down. “Modeling was great to me. I made a lot of money doing it,” says Seear, who plans to move to Los Angeles later this year to focus on acting.
