Sumpter, 14, who plays the boy who never grew up, grew eight inches (0.2 meters) during the making of the film, leading to a window frame in which his character appears in having to be remade four times.
And his escalating height also prompted adult co-star JASON ISAACS - who plays evil villain CAPTAIN HOOK - to use a box to stand on during their scenes together.
Sumpter laughs, "The window I fly into in the nursery - they had to change the height of it four times so I didn't have to crouch to get in.
"And Hook is supposed to be a lot bigger than I am, right? When I got taller, Jason had to stand on an apple box."03/12/2003 02:15
