    She's darling and quite talented. Her latest performance in Definitely, Maybe wasn't her largest role but she was charming and delightful. To really see her skills you should check out Little Miss Sunshine.

    She's gorgeous, a real stunner and as time goes by she will probably only become more beautiful. But more than that she can hold her own with some major actors. Her performances are complicated and unique, one to watch in coming years.

    She's a genius. Everyone knew that from the moment she appeared in I Am Sam. She is wise beyond her years and has such a transparent face you can read her like the greats; Meryl Streep, Tom Hanks and Natalie Portman.

    From his heartbreaking performance in Finding Neverland to Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, The Golden Compass and the Spiderwick Chronicles he already has quite the resume of blockbusters under his belt. It's the making for a bonafide star. He can hold the screen all on his own.

      He is very good. I'd like to see more voice work. Needs to develop a repertoire of accents. Excellent face control. Can do very subtle work. Needs to try out some darker, more mature films. If he's to continue acting into adulthood he'll need more dramatic material to outgrow his 'childhood' image. Can't be a kid for ever, Freddie.

    Lots of family films to his credit and more in the works. He's the kid other kids dream of becoming, an ordinary boy with some extraordinary stories and experiences.

      Needs to lose weight. He's good, but should exercise more and watch his diet. fewer burgers and fries. More salads. From one with diabetes and heart disease. I'd hate to see him go down that road. Aim for a BMI of 20.

    Abigail's big brother may not be as distinguished in terms of his actual abilities as his little sis but he's still pretty good and with time he may get better.
