Sarah Bolger  has been cast in the lead role for the new 3D fantasy “Starbright”. The Dublin born actress will star alongside actor James Earl Jones, who played Darth Vader in “Star Wars”.

In “Starbright” the 19-year-old plays an orphan called Pamela  who escapes into a fantasy world of fairy tales to hide the pain of a tough childhood.

Bolger was a recipient of the best actress award at the 2010 Irish Film and Television Awards for her role as Mary Tudor in “The Tudors”. Her other acting credits include “In America” (2002) and “The Spiderwick Chronicles” (2008). She is currently filming  Mary Harron's gothic film “The Moth Diaries” in Monreal.

The German-US co-production is being produced by Michel Morales’ Munich-based Aviv Pictures, US based Lucente Filmed Entertainment, and Michel Shane and Anthony Romano’s Hand Picked Films (US).

Directed by Francesco Lucente, filming is expected to begin in early 2011.
