Young Hollywood Actors Who Deserve Your Attention
The year 2017 has proven to be a big one for young Hollywood as rookie actors have begun raking in attention here and there. From a Netflix star on the rise to a recent Oscar nominee, here are young Hollywood actors that are sure to make it big this year.
1. Millie Bobby Brown
Millie Bobby Brown may only be 12 years old, but she has already rubbed shoulders with Winona Ryder and Ellen DeGeneres. The brilliant British actress got her first leading role in the hit Netflix series Stranger Things back in 2016. Not only will she be reprising her role as the telepathic Eleven when the show streams again this fall, but Millie is also gearing up to take on the fashion industry as the new face of Calvin Klein.
2. Mia Goth
Mia Goth has made headlines after news about her marriage to actor Shia LaBeouf broke out, but she’s slowly making a name for herself in the industry. Goth recently appeared alongside Dane DeHaan for the Gore Verbinski horror film A Cure for Wellness this year.
And it seems like directors of the horror genre love her as Goth is slated to star in the remake of the 1977 film Suspiria. The film stars fellow young Hollywood actress Chloë Grace Moretz and veteran star Tilda Swinton.
3. Bill Skarsgård
Bill Skarsgård helms from a family of actors. His brother is Tarzan actor Alexander Skarsgård while his father is none other than Stellan Skarsgård. Bill’s biggest role to the date was playing the lead character in the Netflix series Hemlock Grove, and he also bagged a role in Allegiant last year. This 2017, Bill is set to star as Pennywise the Dancing Clown in the remake of Stephen King‘s It.
4. Zoë Kravitz
Like Skarsgård, Zoë Kravitz is no stranger to show business. Her father is singer and actor Lenny Kravitz, and her mom is the drop-dead gorgeous Lisa Bonet. But Kravitz is not letting her famous family take all the credit as the hardworking actress had breakout roles in Mad Max and Insurgent. She has yet another blockbuster movie under her sleeve with Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. Kravitz will also appear in a number of productions such as Viena and the Fantomes, Rock That Body, and the HBO TV series Big Little Lies.
5. Taron Egerton
Taron Egerton is not a household name yet, which is a shame because he happens to be one of the most talented actors in young Hollywood today! The British actor has appeared alongside Hugh Jackman in the movie Eddie the Eagle, and he proved his singing talent in the animated feature Sing.
6. Gugu Mbatha-Raw
You may recognize Gugu Mbatha-Raw in that tear-jerking Black Mirror episode titled “San Junipero.” Not only was her onscreen presence a thrill to watch, but she has also displayed an incredible range. This 2017, Gugu has two Disney productions under her belt. One is for Beauty and the Beast, and the other is alongside Reese Witherspoon for A Wrinkle in Time.
7. Lucas Hedges
Lucas Hedges is only 20, but he has already worked with heavyweight director Wes Anderson twice. His role in the Oscar-nominated film Manchester by the Sea really placed the talented young actor in the Hollywood hemisphere. This young Hollywood star can be next seen in Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri alongside Peter Dinklage and Woody Harrelson.
