Rumor: Rachel Hurd-Wood & Alex Pettyfer Up For Roles In Episode VII

By: Benjamin Hart

The increasingly loyal rumor-makers at Latino Review have another report about the casting for Episode VII, which is presumably going on right now. Kellvin Chavez explains that he heard from his sources that actors Rachel Hurd-Wood and Alex Pettyfer are auditioning for roles in the next installment of the Saga:

I know who went in for an audition to play the daughter of Princess Leia (and presumably Han Solo)…And got it confirmed via representation and other solid sources: Rachel Hurd-Wood.... Our sources told us that she went in for a read and, so far, was the only one that went in for the part. However, there will be other girls going for a read, meaning SHE DOESN’T HAVE THE ROLE YET!! We want to be very clear on that before it gets blown out of context.

Hurd-Wood is best know for her role as Wendy Darling in 2003's Peter Pan

Chavez didn't stop there:

That’s not the only thing I found out! I’ve now heard from a number of people that another actor is going for a meeting to possibly star in the film: Alex Pettyfer.... Pettyfer starred in the 2012 movie Magic Mike, and played a supporting role Lee Daniels film The Butler. As for what Pettyfer is going in for? Your guess is as good as mine, but I would say he’s going in for Skywalker’s son now that Gosling has declined.

And he also threw out this little tidbit at the end:

One last note, I’m hearing there is a major casting news (not what I reported above) dropping very soon via Lucasfilm. It could even be officially announced today… but I promised that I wouldn’t say a word on it.

So, is Latino Review right on or way off with this? What do you think of these two actors possibly having roles in Episode VII? Please let us know in the comments below, or on Facebook!
