The stars and creator of the Twilight film franchise want beloved TV star Betty White to join them in the Breaking Dawn movies.

Kellan Lutz, Robert Pattinson, Elizabeth Reaser, Peter Facinelli and Julia Jones are among the vampires and werewolves who would love to welcome the Golden Girls star to the cast.

And even author Stephanie Meyer would like to see White as an elderly vampire villain.

Lutz says, “I would love for them to do what they did in (film) Benjamin Button with her and she can be Renee (Sarah Clarke’s character) or Esme (Reaser’s character). I would change some scenes up so we could have Emmet (Lutz’s character) going for her. I want to work with her. That would be so much fun.”

And Reaser adds, “I’d love for her to be in Breaking Dawn. We could all learn a lot from her.”

While Jones suggests White could play Kirsten Stewart’s great-great-grandmother “in a flashback scene”.

But Twilight series author Meyer has a more sinister idea. She tells, “We have so many vampires in Breaking Dawn, surely she can fit in somewhere. Wouldn’t it be amazing if she was like just sitting there with a big group of the Volturi (vampire sect)? That would be amazing.”

White has experienced a career resurgence in recent months after she featured in a hilarious Snickers bar commercial during the Super Bowl telecast.
