Kristen Stewart’s parents have been cast in “Snow White and the Huntsman.”
Joining “The Twilight Saga” star in the re-imagined big screen fairy tale as her folks are former model-turned-actress Liberty Ross, and British actor Noah Huntley, one of the film’s producers — Palak Patel — revealed on Twitter on Friday.
Noah will play the King. He previously appeared in the James Franco and Natalie Portman film “Your Highness,” as the head knight. He also played the role of Mark in director Danny Boyle’s “28 Days Later.”
Liberty, who plays Kristen’s mother, was discovered in the early ‘90s and quickly went on to appear on the covers of several international editions of Vogue magazine. She was also the face of Jimmy Choo shoes for a time, as well as brands including Emanuel Ungaro and Sonia Rykiel.
Liberty and Noah join a cast that already includes Kristen, recent “Pirates of the Caribbean” franchise newcomer Sam Claflin as Prince Charmant, Chris Hemsworth, who plays the Huntsman, and Charlize Theron who takes on the Evil Queen.
In related Tweets, Sam revealed he’s been getting in shape to film the new take on Snow White.
“Powering towards another workout. Not long til we get going on #SWATH. More horse-riding, archery & fighting,” he noted.
A rival Snow White project, “The Brothers Grimm,” starring Julia Roberts as the Evil Queen, Sean Bean as the King and Lily Collins as Snow White, is currently in production.
