Top Ten Child Actors of All Time


The Contenders: Page 3XW

41Dean Stockwell

Many people may not be aware that Al on Quantum Leap was a very successful child actor. If you could rent it "The Boy with Green Hair" from 1943, I think, was one of his first movies. You will literally fall in love with those budgy little cheeks and Bambi like wide eyes. So darling!


42Jamie Bell

This young Brit won a BAFTA for his performance in Billy Elliot beating out Hollywood hitters Ton Hanks, Geoffrey Rush AND Russell Crowe.

48Elijah Wood

Come on, who would probably forget about Mr. Frodo in The Lord of the Rings. Or when he played in The War. He is awesome, awesome, in every movie :D!

I love The Lord of the Rings. I've even read the books. You have to love Frodo Baggins

Ummm... Although I'm a Lord of the Rings fan, Elijah was a GROWNUP when he did these movies. He was a good actor in his youth though.

56Leonardo DiCaprio
57Henry Thomas
58Dana Plato

Child actor who went downhill after her childhood. She died from a drug overdose! Does she deserve to be on a " ALL TIME " list? People who can't handle their succes are in the wrong business. So?
