Top 10 Most Promising Young Actors in 2021Over the last few years, many young actors have starred in multiple movies (duh that's what actors do), giving them the opportunity to showcase their talents in the art of acting. In the next few years or decades, maybe one of the actors listed below will be the next Tom Hanks, the next Leonardo DiCaprio or the next Angelina Jolie. Let's see who could one day rule Hollywood!
24 year old Tom Holland has already accomplished a lot in his young career, most notably playing Spider-Man in multiple Marvel movies. In the last 5 years alone, he has acted or voice acted in 17 movies.
I hope we get a Bully Holland meme.
31 year old Elizabeth Olsen first came to prominence with her performance in the 2011 movie Martha Marcy May Marlene. Starring in a few Marvel movies in the role of Scarlet Witch really helped push her career to the next level so there is no doubt this will help her career tremendously. Expect big things from this young actress.
30 year old Margot Robbie has been busy in the last few years, acting in multiple movies every year, most notably The Wolf of Wall Street and Suicide Squad among others, even getting nominations for her performances. Every year the young actress seems to be getting even more popular so there is no doubt in my mind she will one day be one of the most well known actresses.
I kind of thought she was already one of the most well known actresses.
People on social media have been giving her a bad time over the sequel trilogy. I understand not liking those movies, but attacking Daisy Ridley is stupid, if anything blame Kathleen Kennedy or Rian Johnson.
28 year old Daisy Ridley gained international fame for her role as Rey in the Star Wars sequel trilogy. Hopefully this amazing performance will lead her to even more success.
28 year old John Boyega acted in a few movies in his native Britain, but he rose to prominence when he starred in the Star Wars sequel trilogy of films. With this new international fame, this surely opens new doors for this young actor.
24 year old Sophie Turner made her acting debut in Game of Thrones, just like Maisie Williams, and she starred in two X-Men movies. This is a very good start to her acting career, a talented actress such as her will most likely find great success.
Maisie Williams is only 23 years old and she has already made a big name for herself with her role in Game of Thrones, obviously starring in a critically acclaimed TV show will open doors for you, so expect the future to be bright for this young actress.
She was amazing in the movie True Grit.
24 year old Zendaya has come a long way from starring in Disney channel TV shows. Now she is getting a lot of attention since she played the role of MJ in new Spider-Man movies (and she plays a role in the upcoming Dune movie).
25 year old Timothée Chalamet has starred in multiple movies in the last five years and is keeping his momentum going in 2021 with the movies Dune, The French Dispatch and Don't Look Up.
Acting alongside Hugh Jackman in Logan is a big deal and her performance was amazing, I'm sure this will open doors for her.
She was amazing in Logan
24 year old Lucas Hedges made his breakthrough in 2016 by playing a sardonic teenage orphan in Kenneth Lonergan's drama Manchester by the Sea, which earned him a nomination for the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor. In the last few years, he has acted in two to three movies per year so he's been staying busy.
I added Watson to the list. She is very well known because of her work in the Harry Potter movies, but when you compare her to actors like Scarlett Johansson, Tom Hanks, Leonardo DiCaprio, etc, she is far from being on the same level of fame and accomplishments.
