I can only imagine it's harder for child actors as they probably don't even know how to respond to the pressure.I think film-makers need to be wary of the expectations and hype of the roles they cast actors in, especially child actors.

I think acting talent alone or typecasting shouldn't be the driving factors of casting child actors.

I think film-makers need to look for children who can see past their current role and handle the pressure of success as well as brutal failure.

I think Haley Joel Osment should have been casted as Anakin Skywalker in Phantom Menace.

Not only is he a better actor but he handled the pressure of critical films very well (at least from what i've seen).

I also think Keira knightley was miscasted and should have been Queen Padmé Amidala.

She has more personable screen presence and obviously handled the pressure very well as child actor.I realize of course, film-makers don't feel obligated to protect actor's emotional well-being and their future career as actor, But I tell you it's the actor who can handle the pressure help sustain the quality of older films.

Ask yourself would RAIDER OF THE LOST ARK be as good as it is considered if if Harrison Ford buckled from the pressure like Jake Lloyd ? So I really do believe an actor isn't just being casted for a particular role, but also a permanent spokesperson for the film's future.Reply
