India Eisley will play a younger Angelina Jolie in Maleficent movie
India Eisley has landed the role of a younger Angelina Jolie in her upcoming film, Maleficent.
The young actress, who stars in the ABC series The Secret Life Of An American Teenager, will appear in the sinister upcoming remake of Sleeping Beauty as a younger version of Angelina Jolie’s character, Maleficent.
Jolie previously spoke of being cast as the wicked character, telling Entertainment Weekly she is determined to show the sorceress as a woman who is ‘actually a good person’ but is ‘far from perfect.’
Asked if Maleficent will be a protagonist instead of a villain, Jolie explained: ‘It’s not anti-princess, but it’s the first time they’re looking at this epic woman.’
‘I hope in the end you see a woman who is capable of being many things, and just because she protects herself and is aggressive, it doesn’t mean she can’t have other qualities. You have to figure out the puzzle of what she is.’
