Jackie Evancho is beautiful in blue at the premiere of The Company You Keep held at The Museum of Modern Art on Monday night (April 1) in New York City.
The 12-year-old singer plays Robert Redford‘s daughter in the upcoming thriller.
“I needed a kid that could just be…I’m sitting in the hotel room and I’m surfing TV, boom there comes this beautiful, angelic face on a show called ‘America’s Got Talent,’ I thought, maybe she could act,” Robert shared with EXTRA on casting Jackie.
He added, “It was a risk. She showed up two days later…it goes to show you risks are worth taking; she turned out to be the most real, human kid.”
