The beauty played Shia`s love interest in the first two Transformers movies. However, it was recently revealed Megan would not be appearing in the next instalment of the action franchise and Shia admits it will be strange not to see her on the set.
Megan had signed on to appear in the third film, but subsequently pulled out insisting she left on good terms with the rest of the cast and crew.
"I love Megan and I miss the girl," Shia told USA Today.
Victoria`s Secret model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley has landed the female lead in the next movie. Shia is looking forward to working with the British beauty and thinks it will bring a new dimension to the popular franchise.
"Sam and Mikaela [Shia`s and Megan`s characters] became one character," he explained. "And here [with the casting of Rosie]...You have discovery again from a new perspective."
Megan made a series of disparaging remarks about director Michael Bay and the films. He later said he had forgiven her for her comments because she was so young. Michael has now admitted it was a struggle to work on the second movie, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen.
"I`ll take some of the criticism," he said. "It was very hard to put [the sequel] together that quickly after the writers` strike."
It has been reported Transformers 3 will go into production in locations across the US next month. It is expected to be released in early 2011.
