Steven Spielberg Cast 10 Year Old for his Upcoming ‘The BFG’

Ruby Barnhill

Steven Spielberg has found the actress to play the lead role role in his upcoming “The BFG”, 10 year old British girl Ruby Barnhill. She will portray Sophie, a young orphan who befriends a Big Friendly Giant.

This will be Barnhill’s first movie role.

The long awaited movie from Dreamworks due out in 2016 is based on the Ronald Dahl children’s novel of the same name. Published in 1982 and translated into 39 different languages, it tells the story of a young orphan girl who is befriended by a friendly giant.

If all goes well, Barnhill could join the likes of Drew Barrymore and Christian Bales among the child actors made famous after first appearing in Steven Spielberg movies.

The legendary director said in a statement, “I feel Roald Dahl himself would have found Ruby every bit as marvelous as we do. We have discovered a wonderful Sophie in Ruby Barnhill.”

Barnhill said, “After a lengthy search, I feel incredibly lucky and I’m so happy. Sophie gets to go on this wonderful adventure and I’m so excited that I get to play her.”
