Choosing the Top 10 actors and actresses under the age of 20 may be a shot in the dark, but there is more than enough evidence to back up what follows. These kids (if you can call them kids) can flat out act. From leading blockbusters before their teenage years to commanding multi-million dollar salaries before reaching legal adulthood, these young adults deserve a tip of the cap. And the young people on this list…? To this point, all have maintained their sanity and good behavior. Bonus!
10. Bella Thorne
Anabella Avery Thorne. It’s tough to peg Bella Thorne. Is she a teeny-bopper, a tween or one of those girls who passes for a woman? She’s pretty much all three, and boasts a reputation in Hollywood as being one of the most approachable young celebrities in the game. One thing you can peg regarding Bella: she’s gorgeous, and delightfully dorky. If Hollywood were to create a prototype of future leading ladies, she’s got the goods. She’s a mix of types like Julia Roberts and Jessica Chastain with the fiery red hair, and she has a comedic and fiery personality to go along with it. The Pembroke Pines, Florida native is of Cuban, Irish and Italian descent. Down to acting, Bella has endured too much Disney, but she’s a blank canvas in terms of potential. She’ll turn 20 on October 8, 2017.Gregorio T. Binuya/Everett Collection
