Top Child Actors of 2008
The best child actors of the past year.
Dakota FanningShe'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.
Abigail BreslinShe'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.
AnnaSophia RobbShe'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.
Freddie HighmoreFrom 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.
