An interview with Q'orianka Kilcher, star of upcoming Princess Kaiulani film
It was. "That girl who played Pocahontas" in the 2005 film "The New World"--17-year-old actress Q'Orianka Kilcher--is now a young woman, with a new film and an articulate vision of the new world she wants to help create.
The film, based on the life of Princess Victoria Kaiulani of Hawaii, will be directed by Marc Forby and is scheduled for international release in late 2008.
"Kilcher is Quechua-Huachipaeri on her Peruvian father's side and Swiss-Alaskan on her mother's side," notes the article. Since all indigenous people look and act alike, that's close enough, right?
