They might be too young to drive, but they are certainly old enough to become Hollywood stars! These days young actors get a lot of attention and recognition due to social media and multimillion fan bases that can appear in a blink of an eye, turning child actors into superstars. With expectations building up after each successful role, these young actors have a lot to prove to themselves and their audiences. We present you 9 up and coming child and teen actors that will soon take over Hollywood.
Jacob Tremblay (12)
You might have seen Jacob Tremblay in cute Smurfs 2 or fantastically horrific Before I Wake movie, but it wasn’t until he starred in the Room that critics finally admitted the teen’s talent. He got a SAG award nomination for Best Supporting Actor for playing the boy who grew up in a tiny room with his abducted mom.
Millie Bobby Brown (14)
Stranger Things has become one of the biggest hits of the year, as well as an incredibly successful retro-styled thriller. Millie Bobby Brown portrayed one of the main characters, Eleven, earning herself a following of more than 10 million people.
Jack Dylan Grazer (14)
It seems that Stephen King’s It movie became a real career booster for the kids that starred in it. At least this is what happened to Jack Dylan Grazer who played Eddie. In 2019, we will see this talented boy perform in an upcoming superhero movie Shazam!
Skai Jackson (16)
You might remember gorgeous Skai Jackson from a number of small roles in shows like Royal Pains, Boardwalk Empire, and The Smurfs movie. For the past few years she’s been part of the Disney Channel gang, playing the sweet Zuri Ross in sitcoms Jessie and Bunk’d.

Dafne Keen (13)
We knew quite little about Dafne Keen before her spectacular role in the last Wolverine movie Logan. This little feisty mutant girl won everyone over and even stole some spotlight from Hugh Jackman himself! Next she’s going to star in His Dark Materials, a screen adaptation of Philipp Pullman’s dark fantasy worlds.
Cameron Boyce (19)
Cameron Boyce is part of the new Disney Channel generation of young actors and actresses who will definitely rule Hollywood one day.

Veronika Bonell (17)
We haven’t seen a lot of work done by the gorgeous Veronika Bonell, but her appearance in the Agent Carter TV Series as the young Dottie, showcasing some pretty outstanding martial arts, was more than promising. This girl definitely has a lot of potential!
