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.

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!

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.

When she was little

60 Christina Ricci Christina Ricci

When it comes to child acting, there is no substitute for the talent of Christina Ricci. Look at her portrayal of Wednesday in The Adams Family! To be able to completely fall into a role at such a young age is incredibly talented. For more of her awesome acting, check out Caspar and Now And Then. This girl rocks!

Wonderful acting in Mermaids with Winona Ryder
