Actors to Watch

These are the young actors that I feel is too soon to say whether they will have good or bad careers, but who I think show a remarkable amount of talent and may blossom into shining stars. If you have any doubts remember Elizabeth Taylor, Jodie Foster, and Elijah Wood all started as child stars and Johnny Depp and Leonardo DiCaprio started out as teen heartthrobs and Anne Hathaway started out in teen movies. :)
