The Top TenXW
Robert Redford saw Jackie's PBS Great Performances "Dream With Me - In Concert" on television in his Vancouver hotel room while on location for "The Company You Keep". He had auditioned many others to play his daughter, but hadn't found the right one. He made inquiries, had Jackie submit an audition tape, then flew her out to Vancouver. He cast her when he met her. - Trancas
Really just a supporting role as Robert Redford's 11-year old daughter, but her character is Redford's main motivation throughout the entire movie, so it was vital that she was sympathetic and totally believable.
Jackie Evancho was in Canada 4 days after Robert Redford 1st saw her on his hotel room T.V.. He described her as a "golden haired angel" who suddenly appeared on the screen. This is her 1st major acting role that has to be experienced to be fully appreciated. She became her character, "Izzy", on screen.V2 Comments
How did he not win an oscar for his performance is beyond me. His performance made that movie the the hit it was.
I beleive he was the main attraction for this movie. After all, he sees dead people... - funkymonkey
A bright up & coming actress who, later in her career, appeared in 2 series of the British teen drama Skins.
Josh Hustcherson is a flawless actor. He did a wonderful job in this movie. he was eleven or tewlve years old in this movie! That is amazing.
He did great here but I still don't like him as Peeta in The Hunger Games...
BTT was a great movie and book I almost cried in the book, too.
The acting was very impressive especially for his first movie. They say Transformers was Shia's best movie, but really, I thought this was his best. - vmacmil-1
I'm surpirised he barely got any recognition for this movie. His performance as Stanley Yelnats was awesome! - nallimcamybloc
Shia LaBeouf is a natural performer - docghostV1 Comment
Noah was also Aang in The Last Airbender, even though that movie is thought of as a bit naff, Noah still has potential.
Amazing performance. You must see this movie.
He deserved to win oscar for this!
All the boys in it are great but Phoenix was just so talented. I still can't believe he was only 14/15 at the time.
the best actor of all time. Even when he was just 14.
