Some more Star Wars rumors have emerged today, this time involving the potential casting of none other than Princess Leia's daughter in Episode VII.
Latino Review's sources say that Rachel Hurd-Wood has auditioned to play the part, though the site stresses that while she is so far the only actress to read for the role, there will be others and this does not mean she has landed the job yet.
Hurd-Wood is a British actress who is perhaps best known for her turn as Wendy when she was just a kid back in 2003's Peter Pan. But what's interesting about this report is that it tracks with previous rumors that have Episode VII featuring the children of Leia, Luke, and Han (though hopefully not of all three combined). Ryan Gosling reportedly met with the Star Wars team last month about playing Luke’s son (and has since declined).
Meanwhile, LR says Alex Pettyfer (I Am Number Four, Magic Mike) has also read for a role. No word yet on what part Pettyfer is up for, but he sure seems like the Skywalker type, doesn't he?
The site also reports that "a major casting news" item is expected to drop very soon from Lucasfilm (possibly as early as today), so stay tuned…
