The film directed by Kevin McDonald, who helmed the BAFTA and Oscar-winning Last King of Scotland, from a screenplay by Jeremy Brock and Toni Grisoni is set to start shooting in Wales at the end of this month.
20 year old George Mackay will star opposite Saoirse as her cousin Edmond (known as Eddie in the film) with whom Daisy forms a close bond when she is sent to stay in the English countryside. George (represented by Gordon and French) started acting when he was 10 and landed the role of Curly, one of the Lost Boys in the 2003 feature Peter Pan. He has worked steadily since, and more recently he appeared in Defiance, The Boys Are Back and Hunky Dory. He will next be seen starring as Tommo in Private Peaceful, a feature film based on the 2003 novel by the award-winning children’s author, Michael Morpurgo.
The author Meg Rosoff confirmed on her blog that she "had it on excellent authority that he and Saoirse are magic together."
Tom Holland (represented by Curtis Brown) will play his younger brother Isaac. Tom, from Kingston-upon-Thames is the son of comedian Dominic Holland, and spent nearly two years playing Billy Elliot in the West End after landing the role when he was 12. He will shortly be seen in J.A Bayona's The Impossible, the story of a family caught in the tsunami that hit South East Asia, seven years ago on Boxing Day, starring alongside Naomi Watts and Ewan McGregor.
How I Live Now is to shortly start shooting on location in a remote part of Wales, west of Brecon.
