Top Ten Child Actors of All Time
The Top Ten Child Actors of All Time
Shirley Temple's performances are and will likely always be untouchable. She's one of a kind! When you think of all of the talent that lived inside of that little body, you KNOW that she is the only option for #1. No contest.
She sang, she danced (with the best dancers in the biz), she was cute as a bug & her acting could bring tears to your eyes in a heartbeat. There's a reason she was the #1 box office attraction for many years, and she's the top pro on this list, that's for sure.
Shirley Temple is by far the best child actor ever. Why is she in 9th I never heard of a majority of the kids before her. - FrankP
There is nobody that can outshine her, singing, dancing, and acting and she did all three brilliantly, starting out at the age of two or three! I love watching her movies and to me she will always be #1!
Absolutly beautifull young lady and Is compelling in every scene and movie.Her acting skill should warrant a paycheck BIG AS or =2 most major A List Adults.
Beautiful, sweet and very talented young actress. I'm a fan!
Best young actress to see love her in Twilight though her performances are always the best
She makes me cry in "I am Sam"
Culkin is the best and most natural of all time. His skill alone tramples everyone else with never using cue cards and just memorizing lines.
come on. HOME ALONE!! funniest kid ever
Fine, sure, Home Alone is great. I love it. Watch that... and The Good Son. He was great, back in the day. Both of those performances are phenomenal and combined, they show how great of an actor Culkin actually is.
No one can touch culkin.. He is the best ever and fanning is no where near him so. Admit it.. He is number 1. Whole world knows it.
Great actress love all her performances
Favourite actor/actress of all time.
Hermione said this a lot. - TriggerTrashKid
She is awesome. Should be #1
Very good at Harry Potter so lucky that he was chosen to play Potter in all the movies along siege Rupert Grint and Emma Watson+ others
Daniel Radcliffe was such an adorable child actor. Having succeeded with Harry Potter on his shoulders is an achievement. With his portrayal, Harry Potter for me became the cutest movie character ever.
Great actor his performances are always the best
He is a great actor. He is very focused with his acting career. That made the today him.
I was not that familiar with Katie's work ecept for "The New Adventures of Heidi". I just saw "When Everyday Was The 4th of July". I must say that Katie's performance in that film was as good as it gets!
Best ever. All of his movies as a teen were big hits.0
Who else could it be? The only ones I can think of who are in that class are Sammy Davis jr. and Judy Garland. All were just magical!
watch 'the sixth sense' and the 'a.i. artificial intelligence' then comment on his performance... osment is awesome
Pay it forward is completely underrated and The Sixth Sense was perfect. Anyone who thinks there has been a better child actor there crazy.
The Sixth Sense he was nominated for an oscar! Why can't he be higher? You must watch the sixth sense. - Jetticus12
Their are many great child actors, but Osment is the only only one to have been able to be up their with the greatest adult actors as a child.
She is amazing in Stranger things , intruders Godzilla king of monsters , modern family , once upon a time in wonderland she should definitely be 1st for a fact x
Amazing in Stranger Things. Showed so much depth and made Eleven one of the favorite characters of the series. Has natural talent you just don't see in very many 12 year old actresses.
If only I could vote for two people, I would vote for Emma Watson and Millie Brown. Millie is such a great actress! She only had little lines on the show "Stranger Things", but she was still able to express her feelings. - TheFourthWorld
I got chills when I saw her name that's how good she is
I love that series I've read 4 books lupin is by far the best defense against the dark arts teacher so far while lockhart is the worst spoiler alert lockhart is self-oriented
David Copperfield and Harry Potter. That is a lot of main roles for a child. He is amazing!
His expressions in Harry Potter... - CloudyDaze
Love his style of acting!
For me, I think Cole is more talented. He was the one that really moved in on in acting, while Dylan just stayed a kid actor.
Big Daddy, Friends and Suite life of Zack and cody - daniannaactor1
I love suite life of zack and cody! I mean they were so cute! They still ar
They act awesome in suite life
People don't know who she is I suppose. Here's a hint for you, she's hit girl go watch Kick ass now and tell me how she do not belong as number one?
Have you people seen Kick-Ass, she was outstanding in that movie! How is she not #1, or at least in the top ten
She played Angie in Diary of a wimpy Kid!
Such a good actor! I love her in Hugo.
She honestly should be number one! She was in a class of her own!
She should follow Shirley Temple.
Millie Bobby Brown above Judy is the definition of a joke. - 445956
This isn't on here. Losing faith in humanity. - 445956
Loved him in hugo
Deserves number 1!
Cameron is awesome in jessie grown ups all movies
Love lost boys and silver bullet. Too bad he died in 2010. - Stitch013
I cannot believe people like 'Mary-Kate and Ashely Olsen' or 'Frankie Muniz' are on this list... now i understand that sadly much of the world has forgotten River... But just check out some of his work... stand by me or running on empty perhaps, and you will see what i mean. These guys dont stand a chance against the actor he was. Read up on him too... hes the most inspiring person in the whole world.
This list is messed up. If River is not at least in the the top five of any best child actors list, something is truly messed up. He was pure talent. RIP River
River Phoenix was extremely talented and wise beyond his years. His performance in Stand By Me is as good as any A-list actor's. So talented.
Amazing actor and heartbreakingly beautiful
What a tragic waste
He is such an amazing actor! The talent he had to have when he portrayed Auggie in Wonder...
NO. I don't accept this. He cannot be lower than Peyton List, he is incredible! Such a moving performance in Room and you can tell that he will be successful if he keeps up with his acting!
He's adorable! Best of Wonder and The Book of Henry! Love you Jacob!
Did great in room. If he carries on, one day he'll a great actor. - zxm
The fox and the hound, The goonies, stand by me (Coolest movie ever) and much more!
He is great and will always be my number 1 celebrity crush😁
Freddie Highmore... no one knows his name but they know his work.
Everyone knows him
-Charlie and The Chocolate factory
-Five children and it
-The Spiderwick Chronicles

Bridge to Terabithia and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Great movies, if you haven't seen them. Both, obviously, had AnnaSophia-Robb. - RockFashionista
Bridge to terabithia.and the reaper - daniannaactor1
Bridge to Terabithia is garbage. - BeatlesFan1964
Bridge to Terabithia,i have watched this movie in hindi dubbing and I think best dubbing ever by india,you can watch this movie again and again
HAS ANYONE EVER SEEN THE WINDOW? THIS LITTLE GUY CARRIED THE ENTIRE MOVIE-THE LOOK OF TERROR ON HIS FACE, AND THE TONE OF HIS VOICE WAS UNREAL.
I saw “The Window” and he was excellent in it!
A great actor. He nails the karate kid and the pursuit of happy ness! Knows how to show suitable emotions... PERFECT.. Should be number one
What the hell is he doing behind Noah Schnapp. He should be the last one at least. - DevinGuinivere
He was awesome in the Karate Kid
Noah Schnapp is amazing. He deserves at least #1. He's great at showing different emotions, crying, happiness, depressed, even at like not himself whatsoever. He's awesome - DevinGuinivere
He is amazing! He can cry and scream like there is a demon inside of him! He deserves to be number 12.
He's the best in the stranger things cast.
He need to be on number 3 at least, thanks.
- yours truly,
just another stranger things fan.
Love her in the lovely bones brilliant performance
Her acting was a memorizing shock in super 8. I never knew a child was capable of her acting talents.
She should be higher on the list, like come on, she's just as talented as her sister
I love her. - JCHOW
He is my favorite actor on stranger things and an amazing person in real life!
All their T.V. shows and books were way cooler than any other teens entertainment things...
they were cute when they were younger.
Two of a kind plus heaps more. - daniannaactor1
Amazing performers. Have pure talent. We’re the most famous kids of their time. Made full house the show it is
Not just Opie, but also good in the Music Man and The courtship of Eddie, s Father. Could include Happy days
Award winning director, Opie from "The Andy Griffith Show", Richie Cunningham from "Happy Days"
he's great when he's really young on andy griffith - jwileson
He was a top 5. This is a bogus poll.
! Abigail Breslin at 17!?!? Zombieland, great! Little Miss Sunshine, she won and was nominated for so many awards! And a lot more, she in my opinion is the best youth actor! Cause she's now 17! - Jetticus12
By the way, AB was nominated for an ACADEMY AWARD FOR LITTLE MISS SUNSHINE! AT ONLY 11 YEARS OLD! TALK ABOUT TALENT! - Jetticus12
I am glad that Abigail Breslin dissed 5 Seconds of Summer.
he is so cute and talented Why wouldn't he be in the top ten
Yugvijay is now an international star he should be in top 10 according to me better than Miley whose doing wrecking ball...
He's attractive and stylish. The best thing is he was at like the last number in this list and in few weeks at 20Th number. Love it he said that he don't call fans he says friends. His friends list is huge man I'm little jealous also has.
Finest Artist I have ever seen he will surely earn a great name in future...
He is the only Indian artist here so my vote goes to him and I like him also so big vote for Indian kid!
He was in a nightmare on elm street
He not a kid but he still the best
Johny Depp is not a kid
He is by far one of most best and cutest child actor of all time! Usually I don't see his name on lists so I am very happy he made this one!
He should be higher. In stranger things he was amazing. - DevinGuinivere
Love actually, Nanny PcHee - daniannaactor1
Only when she was younger
What the hell is she doing on this list
She is terrible.
Here u go Hannah Montana!
Extremely talented, but a tragic story.. I wish that he would love himself as much as the world loves him and believe in himself like I believe in him.
Come on Eddie.. You can still be everything that you should have been.
I know that life has thrown you to the ground, but you must get up, dust yourself off and live life.
I am still waiting for him big comeback because he is a worthy actor.
In Terminator 2 Eddie Furlong was like the cool bad boy who every other kid wished they could be.
Just search him up. laugh out loud!
Really surprised she isn't #2 or #3. - truckturner
the kid from Let Me In and The Road - InsertNameHere
He's one of the tallest child actors ever. - Yorkshire2001
I'm surprised they actually allowed her in the classic film, Thomas and the Magic Railroad.
She was great in Mr. Doubtfire and Matilda, should at least be in top ten. - aldwych94
