“Mary said to the angel, ‘How can this be, since I am a virgin?'” (Luke 1:34)
Keisha Castle-Hughes, the 16-year-old actress who gave an amazing and touching performance in her Oscar-nominated role in “Whale Rider”, plays the pregnant Mary, the mother of Jesus, in the upcoming movie “The Nativity Story”. Unfortunately, she’s not just acting as pregnant in the movie, but also pregnant in real life, a soon-to-be teenage mom. The father-to-be is her 19-year-old boyfriend whom she dated for 3 years. Yes, she started dating seriously when she was 13.
I had been anticipating the movie “The Nativity Story” and waiting to watch Keisha in her new role. But after learning of this news, I think I’d rather watch “Whale Rider” a few more times and forget about this and hoping to remember her as that sweet innocent girl in “Whale Rider”.
