A new trailer for Transformers: Dark of the Moon is out, and the one thing that people might be asking themselves is: who is that girl playing alongside Shia LaBeouf?

It is Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, the British-born Victoria’s Secret model that replaced Megan Fox in the third installment of Michael Bay’s action-packed Transformers series.

Fox had a falling out with Bay, who is the director of all three movies.  Out was Fox, and in came Huntington-Whiteley.

It was curious decision by Bay, because the model has no acting experience.  He also told a Yahoo! movie blog that he would never hire a model.  Nonetheless, he encouraged Huntington-Whiteley to audition and chose her over 500 other girls who wanted to play LaBeouf’s love interest.

“She was very spunky. She’s got this cute English accent, and she’s got a great head on her shoulders,” Bay told the blog, explaining why he chose the 24-year-old model over more experienced actress’.
