Doctor Twix is being played by Sarah Peirse

According to IMDB, Kiwi actress, Sarah Peirse is playing Dr Twik in the Mortal Engines film.

Peirse has had a very long association with Peter Jackson productions, going back to Heavenly Creatures in which she played the ill fated mother. She's had a few parts in the Hobbit triology.

She's actually had a pretty decent go of a career as an actress having made a name for herself in Vincent Ward's The Navigator and having played many roles on stage and on NZ and Australian TV shows.

In Mortal Engines Dr Twix is a scientist in the Guild of Engineers that is responsible for the reanimation of stalkers / turning humans into stalkers. She's faithful to the Mayor of London, Magnus Chrome.

We imagine this is the first time Sarah has been cast after a character named for a chocolate bar!
