41Jack O' Connell - Starred Up

A Skins alumni like Dakota Blue Richards, Jack O'Connell is all the rage in Hollywood right now.

42Christopher Mintz Plasse - Superbad

44Gaby Hoffmann - Field of Dreams
45Michael Oliver - Problem Child
46Bobby Driscoll - The Window

I faint when he does...see him in Disney's Treasure Island (1950), and watch those eyes!

At age 12, this film garnered him a special Oscar. Unfortunately, his was a brilliant star plucked from the heavens well before its time.

47Anton Yelchin - Alpha Dog
48Ryan Kelley - Prayers for Bobby
49Ryan Kelley - Still Green
50Rupert Grint - Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone
51Cameron Boyce - Grown Ups 2

He plays excellent in Grown Ups 2 and in the Dinsney channel show Jessie. He was so good of an actor the role on Jessie was changed to fit him!

52Asa Butterfield - Hugo
53Hayley Mills - The Parent Trap

The original and still best job on this movie

54Mark Lester - Oliver!
55Jack Wild - Oliver!

A rascall like performance as the Artful Dodger which got Jack an Academy award nomination, which he should have won.
