Performer Alexander Ludwig ascended to fame as a child star, largely on the basis of two portrayals: the young grifter-to-be Kenny Kimes (played as an adult by Jonathan Jackson) in director Richard Benjamin's well-received made-for-television feature A Little Thing Called Murder (2006) and -- as his first lead -- the role of Will Stanton, a young boy who discovers that he is actually a warrior, in director David Cunningham's spectacular fantasy The Seeker: The Dark Is Rising (2007).
