    She belongs in this franchise so good to have her back. I go with that twin sister bit. But after dragging a 2 ton safe thru the streets of Rio (PR) does it really matter?

    @jimthar Well the way they put it is that if the next installment doesn't have that person back in as the main character but show something having to do with that person whether its a picture or they're in it for like 5 seconds or 2 min, then they consider them a cameo in it.

    she didnt make a cameo in F5, it was simply a picture of her, and a small one at that. but it'll be cool to see her in the next one.

    I'm so tired of this chick. She's not even a good actress, and yet she gets all these roles. Unbelievable!
