Eighteen-year-old India Eisley, pictured left, has been cast to play a young Angelina Jolie in the upcoming Disney film “Maleficent.” Best known for her role as the loving-but-sarcastic Ashley Juergens on ABC Family’s teen drama “The Secret Life of the American Teenager,” Eisley has more in common with Jolie than just looks. Her mother is Argentine actress Olivia Hussey, most famous for her role in the Oscar-winning 1968 movie version of “Romeo and Juliet,” directed by Franco Zeffirelli. She also just appeared in a small role in “Underworld: Awakening,” with Kate Beckinsale, earlier this year.
