British actor Edward Ashley has landed a major role alongside Charlie Hunnam and Robert Pattinson in James Gray‘s “Lost City of Z,” TheWrap has learned.
“Lost City of Z” follows Percy Fawcett (Hunnam), a conscripted soldier and born explorer who disappeared in the 1920s while searching for a mythical city in the Amazon jungles of Brazil that he believed he discovered on a prior expedition.
Ashley will play Arthur Manley, the young corporal who accompanies Fawcett on his expedition into the jungle. It’s a significant role in the film, as Ashley has been booked for a large majority of the shoot.
