  3. Jeremy Sumpter, Peter Pan, 2002.    Another British classic but this time it was his age at fault. Aiken’s audition was cancelled when the suits realised he was 12 when they wanted a Pan in the 14-17 bracket.
  4. Gaelan Connell, Brandslam, 2008.    Aiken quit when accepted by NYU’s film school. Ironically, actor-musician Connell quit the same school in mid-term in order to take over the role of Will.
