“I Am Number Four” Actor Alex Pettyfer and “Peter Pan” Acctress Rachel Hurd-Wood (she played Wendy) have apparently read for roles in the upcoming Star Wars Prequel according to Latino Review. As of right now there is no confirmation as to whether or not these actors officially have the roles but there is a strong possibility. The rumor is as of right now that Hurd-Wood is up for the role of Princess Leia Organa’s daughter (and presumably Han Solo’s daughter). That being said, if this rumor of Hurd-Wood playing Leia’s daughter rings true, it will keep in tradition with Lucasfilm’s tendency to choose B-rated actors/ actresses to play the Skywalkers as Hurd-Wood’s biggest role was Wendy in “Peter Pan”.
As for Pettyfer we have no information as of yet. One thing we do know is that a big casting announcement by Lucasfilm and Disney will be announced very soon, possibly later today, so stay tuned for more exciting news!
