    Dakota Fanning

    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.
  • 2.

    Abigail Breslin

    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.
  • 3.

    AnnaSophia Robb

    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.
  • 4.

    Freddie Highmore

    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.
  • 5.

    Josh Hutcherson

    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.

    Spencer Breslin

    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.
