12-year-old actress Joey King has confirmed she is playing young Talia al Ghul in Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises. We reported in May that Joey King joined the cast, but it was unclear which role she is playing. Here's what she had to say in a recent interview below.
Joey King confirms playing Talia al Ghul in The Dark Knight Rises
"I play young Talia al Ghul. I can't give too much away because I promised Mr. Christopher Nolan I wouldn't say anything. There are too many secrets about the character and the movie."
We reported in December that actress Leilah De Meza was offered the young Talia al Ghul role, but her mother turned it down since Christopher Nolan wanted Leilah De Meza to go bald for the part.
There is still speculation that Marion Cotillard will become the adult Talia al Ghul, even after it was confirmed that she is playing Wayne Enterprises executive Miranda Tate.
The Dark Knight Rises was released July 20th, 2012 and stars Tom Hardy, Christian Bale, Anne Hathaway, Liam Neeson, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Gary Oldman, Marion Cotillard, Morgan Freeman. The film is directed by Christopher Nolan.
