Career

In July 2002, Sumpter, then thirteen years old, was selected for the role of Peter Pan, breaking the long-standing tradition of young women playing the part in stage and live-action film adaptations of the story. During filming (fall of 2002), he grew eight inches (from 5 ft 0 in to 5 ft 8 in), requiring some filming and staging tricks to conceal his height in scenes filmed late in production. Sumpter did nearly all of his stunts for Peter Pan himself. To prepare, he says he practiced sword fighting as much as five hours a day, as well as training in gymnastics and lifting weights. While filming in Australia, he supplemented his training with cricket and surfing. The $140 million-budgeted film opened in December of 2003, but did poorly, possibly due to reports of its more "adult" treatment of the J. M. Barrie story and competition at the box office from the highly-anticipated The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King. This article is about the play by J.M. Barrie. ...
