Since the release of the phenomenal series Stranger Things, young actors and actresses are beginning to gain more spotlight than usual. More movies are using young actors and actresses as their main cast, and they are now even more famous than most actors and actresses. Here are some of the most groundbreaking young actors and actresses in Hollywood that you’ll likely see headlining in the box office for Oscar-worthy movies.
Finn Wolfhard melted everyone’s hearts when he played as Mike Wheeler in the sci-fi series Stranger Things. That was his stepping stone into becoming the male obsession for every tween girl out there, as his character was depicted as an innocent young boy falling in love for the first time in the series. Then, he starred as funny and careless boy Richie Tozier in the Stephen King adapted horror movie IT, and his comedic lines made the movie more bearable to watch after the frightening scenes.
Finn Wolfhard also has a band called Calpurnia, and he is now not only viewed as a sweet young, handsome actor but also a badass and funny singer/guitarist. Wolfhard is definitely going to be in more movies alongside big celebrities in the future, as the sequel to IT has already been revealed to involve top billed casts to play alongside Wolfhard.
Millie Bobby Brown
Finn Wolfhard and Millie Bobby Brown both rose from the success of Stranger Things. Brown played as the little girl with incredible superpowers as a result from scientific experiments in the series, where she ran away from the lab that experimented on her and ended up in Mike Wheeler’s basement. Her character isn’t only sweet and naive, it is also powerful and funny, and Brown nailed her part in this series as they are currently filming the third season. Millie Bobby Brown is also going to play alongside Oscar-winning Vera Farmiga in Godzilla: King of The Monsters that is going to be released in 2019. Currently, Brown is hesitant about doing more than one movie because she wants to focus on Stranger Things. However, she might want to be involved in more movies once the series’ production is finished.
You might recognize Mackenzie Foy from her first blockbuster appearance as Bella’s daughter Renesmee in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn. Who would’ve thought that the little girl from the Twilight movie would end up being in an Oscar-winning film?
Her next big play was in Interstellar as young Murph, who was a significant in the movie’s plot to alter time and space for the survival of humans. Foy then continued to play the leading role of Clara in The Nutcracker and The Four Realms, with well-known celebrities such as Keira Knightley and Morgan Freeman.
