So the latest in unsubstantiated (but hey it could be true) rumors is brought to us by Latino Review who say that Rachel Hurd-Wood has auditioned for the role of Princess Leia’s daughter and that Alex Pettyfer is up for an unnamed role.
This of course leads to lots of speculation about whether the Expanded Universe (in which Leia and Han have a daughter and two sons) might be showing up in the movie. But really this news doesn’t prove that one way or the other.
Both actors have some roles under their belts but are not what you’d call big or established names. And both have some modeling in their past or present. Which always makes wonder a little about the criteria for filling the roles.
Assuming it’s true at all. Which we’ll have to wait and see.
