Perla Haney-Jardine has allegedly been cast to play the daughter of Steve Jobs in the forthcoming Jobs biopic, reports the Hollywood Reporter.
The actress has appeared in movies such as Spider-Man 3 in the role of Penny Marko in 2007, and Kill Bill: Vol. 2 as B.B. in 2004. This year she will be playing Lisa Jobs, the once-estranged daughter of Steve Jobs. Lisa was born on May 17, 1978, but she didn’t meet her father until 1986, and in 1991 and 1992 she moved with Steve Jobs and lived with him for a time as a teenager.
The Jobs biopic’s script is based on the Walter Isaacson book and signed by Aaron Sorkin, who has kind words for Lisa Jobs: “She is the heroine of the movie”, he said back in November.
