    Whale Rider's Keisha Castle-Hughes Expecting

    FRIDAY OCTOBER 06, 2006 08:30AM EST

    Whale Rider star Keisha Castle-Hughes, 16, and her boyfriend, Bradley Hull, 19, are expecting their first child this spring, her rep tells PEOPLE. The two have been dating for three years. [!!!]

    The actress first made waves playing the fiery Paikea in 2002's Whale Rider – a role for which she received a Best Actress Oscar nomination. At 13, she was the youngest Best Actress nominee in history.

    "I thought I was still dreaming," she told PEOPLE about the honor at the time.

    Since Whale Rider, Castle-Hughes has taken few roles, though she did play the Queen of Naboo in 2005's Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith and will appear as Mary in the upcoming movie The Nativity Story co-starring Shohreh Aghdashloo.

    The Australia-born actress grew up and still lives in New Zealand and – like her character in Whale Rider – is part Maori.
