The 11-year-old - whose parents Paula Yates and INXS rocker Michael Hutchence are both deceased - is the favourite to land the lead role in 'Eloise in Paris' alongside Uma Thurman after impressing industry scouts.

A source said: "The movie producers scoured schools and drama departments across Britain, America and Canada for the perfect child for the film and Tiger Lily has been placed on a shortlist of 10.

"Eloise has to be sassy, streetwise and lovable, although she also has a naughty side."

The youngster - whose full name is Heavenly Hiraani Tiger Lily - will go for her final audition next week.

'Eloise in Paris' is based on the famous 50s children's books by Kay Thompson.

The plot will see Uma play Eloise's nanny, who follows her charge to Paris for Fashion Week, where she ends up joining Europe's top designers on a hunt for a stolen dress.

Should Tiger Lily win the part she may have to dye her auburn hair blond, as Eloise is known for being fair-haired.

Tiger Lily has been raised by her mother's ex-husband Sir Bob Geldof - who was divorced from Paula in 1996 - since her parents' tragic deaths.

Michael was found dead in his Sydney hotel room in mysterious circumstances in 1997, while Paula died from a drug overdose in 2000.

Charity campaigner Bob opened his home to Tiger Lily because he wanted her to grow up with her half-sisters Fifi Trixibelle, Peaches and Pixie.
