    Default Child Actors Who Stood Out



    Most of them are children. But all of them are actors, who have taken their characters several notches higher with their stellar performances. Whether it’s Macaulay Culkin in the Home Alone series or Asa Butterfield in the recent film Hugo, young actors can often leave their adult counterparts far behind. A few notable mentions.

    Hugo
    Asa Butterfield has delivered a commendable performance with his role as a 13-year-old orphan Hugo Cabret. Butterfield conveys a true sense of emotion of self-discovery that rivals the work of seasoned actors, playing a character that betrays his age.

    Little Miss Sunshine
    Abigail Breslin is remarkable as a pudgy, bespectacled seven-year-old girl — Olive Hoover — who has just one goal: to win a beauty pageant. Breslin made a hilarious and heartbreaking performance as a chubby and somewhat dorky girl as the youngest beauty pageant contestant. Greg Kinnear, her co-star, said he was astounded by her seriousness of purpose during the shooting of the film.

    Free Willy
    Jason James Richter makes a spectacular Jesse — a 12-year-old who has lived mostly in a children’s home. It’s impossible to tell this was Richter’s first film from the polished performance he gave of a boy
    desperate to free a beloved whale.

    Elijah Wood as Frodo Baggins, a hobbit who inherits the Sauron’s ring exuberantly portrays the central idea that the future lies in the hands of the innocent and pure of heart, not the wordly wise.

    Home Alone series
    In this series of four films, Macaulay Culkin is the smart and sassy Kevin McCallister. This series made Culkin a phenomenon, and one of the biggest child stars Hollywood has seen. He was adorable as an eight-year-old defending his home against a pair of idiotic burglars.

    Lassie Come Home
    Roddy McDowall warmed hearts as the human companion of Lassie, a collie. Elizabeth Taylor gives a stunning and praise-worthy performance as the granddaughter of a Duke who helps McDowall to get his dog back.
