Steven Spielberg’s adaptation of Roald Dahl’s ‘The BFG’ has cast newcomer Ruby Barnhill in the role of Sophie, a young London girl introduced to the beauty and peril of Giant Country. ‘The BFG’ will mark 10-year-old Barnhill’s first feature film, having previously been cast in the BBC’s BAFTA award-winning children’s drama “Four O’Clock Club,” as well as performing local youth theatre in her hometown of Cheshire. She will appear opposite three-time Tony Award winner and two-time Olivier Award winner Mark Rylance as the mysterious Big Friendly Giant. “After a lengthy search, I feel Roald Dahl himself would have found Ruby every bit as marvelous as we do,” said Spielberg. “We have discovered a wonderful Sophie in Ruby Barnhill.”
