    I think the girl in the Ewoks films was about as good an actor as a five year old can be.

    I was talking about child heroes in general. Remember that a Swedish childrens book with a 12 year old as an important figure in a WWII wartime Resistance group was changed when it was turned into a film to make the 12 year old significantly older as it was felt that a 12 year old having a leadership position in a Resistance group was more than a little improbable on film.
