Nicola Peltz Nicola Peltz has been confirmed for the lead female role in the upcoming 'Transformers 4' movie, following in the footsteps of Megan Fox and Rosie-Huntington-Whiteley.

The up-and-coming actress has been confirmed for the lead female role in the Michael Bay-directed alien robot blockbuster, joining Mark Wahlberg and Jack Reynor.

Asked whether former 'Transformers' star Megan Fox might return for the forthcoming movie on Twitter, Bay responded: "No. Female lead has been cast. Nicola Peltz."

The 18-year-old actress previously starred in M. Night Shyamalan's 'The Last Airbender' in 2009, which was a big screen adaptation of the Nickelodeon animated series 'Avatar: The Last Airbender'.

Peltz is currently working on TV show 'Bates Motel', which is a loose prequel to Alfred Hitchcock's serial killer horror, 'Psycho', and follows the lives of a teenage Norman Bates and his mother Norma.

Based on early plot outlines, it looks as though the actress will play the daughter of Wahlberg's character, who is dating the arrogant race car driver played by Reynor.
