20 Actors Between 20-25 to Watch until They’re 30

September 9, 2009 — 49 Comments

This week I was thinking about making a compilation of 20 actors (women and men) between the ages of 20-25 to keep track until they’re 30. I tried writing the post today, but it turns out I don’t have many names. Ha! First, some of the people I was considering adding to the list are 26, or not even 20… or are already in their 30s, which is great for them since I thought they were in their 20s… not so good for my list.

At the moment though, I have 8 actresses already picked out. However, I’m missing 2 more actresses. And I’m missing all of the guys (10). HAHAHAHA. So I need help. Leave a comment with some names of young actors/actresses.

Just some things to keep in mind…

  • must be between 20-25, can also be turning 20 this year.
  • must have more than one or two films on her/his CV.
  • too much TV and only 1 film doesn’t count.
  • award recognition is nice, but not mandatory.

As I add the people in single posts, I’ll be adding their names here and linking. :)

  1. I will get back 2 u after I have slept and given this a good thought.
    The dude from Narnia! Both of tham actually, the prince and Peter!
    Daniel radcliff!!!

  2. Sin ningún orden en particular, mis favoritas: Scarlett Johansson (24), Mary Elizabeth Winstead (24), Amanda Seyfried (23), Evan Rachel Wood (22), Keira Knightley (24), Teresa Palmer (23), Emma Stone (20), Ellen Page (22), Camilla Belle (22) y Megan Fox (23).

  3. anda, no sabia q johansson aun tenia 24 jajaja
    algunos de esos nombres estan en la lista q hice, pero q hay de actores??? xD

  4. Scarlett cumple 25 este año, en noviembre.
    Los buenos actores tienen más de 30 XD

  5. Ayase Haruka and Tabe Mikako are my two favorite. and maybe Kaho and of course Yu Aoi. You shlod check them if you hadnt knew them.

  6. Holy, Kaho is only 18??? xD
    I’ve seen all of them on something (except for Kaho… only on the Canon commercials xD).

  7. You should watch Tennen Kokekko with Kaho, if you like Linda linda linda, and teen movies than Tennen Kokekko is surely for you. :)
    Juri is a good choose i like her tooo

  8. will check out Kaho then~~~
    by the way, you don’t need to put a “-” in the URL field if you don’t have one. You can just leave it blank.

  9. Amy,

    You should watch Kaho in Otomen that is just getting fansubbed. Really kawaii in it.

    My two favorite under 25 actresses are Ueno Juri and Aoi Yu, so I am not sure who the number one is. Maybe Chinese or Korean? Maybe Miyazaki Aoi? I will be interested to see who it is, because I have no idea.

    BTW, I do like Ayase Haruka and Tabe Mikako, I just don’t know if I consider them to be great yet.

  10. Hey, Bill~
    hooray for rarely-fansubbed fansubbed projects xD!

    Sadly no Korean youngsters here. I don’t watch much Korean films, and the ones I even considered, were nearly 30. A similar thing with my Chinese possible picks, they were already in their late 20s.

    But Chang Yung Yung made it! LOL

    Anyway, this list is a whole mix. I think I have some Canadian, English and American… etc etc. My list of actors is what worries me the most, hahaha. So if you have the same of young actors that looked promising – don’t be afraid to list them here.

  11. Yu Aoi, of course XD

  12. ¿Dónde está Keira Knightley?, no sé que hace inés efron mejor hubieras puesto a ximena sariñaña total actúa en las películas de su padre. Ellen page es buena pero mejor que Yu Aoi (no lo creo), y Paul Dano es el mejor de su generación.

  13. no es mejor q, es basado en popularidad/proyectos/habilidad.

    Ellen Page tiene x standard una carrera mas reconocida que…

    nunca he visto a ximena sarinana en una pelicula.

    Y los roles de Knightley ya me aburrieron, estoy esperando q haga algo nuevo.

  14. Pero tu misma te contradices me dices que es basado en popularidad/proyectos/habilidad (eso quiere decir más reconocimiento) entonces Keira Knightley le gana a muchas de tu lista y también fue nominada al oscar ¿en qué quedamos?, por lo menos debiste incluirla. Ximena sariñaña siempre actua de niña rica, así que gran cosa no hace, mejor está de cantante aunque se alucine la Norah Jones de latinoamerica.

  15. dime 2 proyectos interesantes de Keira del 2009 o q viene en el 2010, q hayan sonado x su popularidad… o por la critica. Bueno en el 2008 hizo The Duchess q tuvo mixed reviews, The Edge of Love… En el 2009, no saco nada muy importante. Lo mas importante q tiene es el remake de My Fair Lady.

    4 años atras, cuando Knightley tenia 21, ella pudo haber estado en el top3 de 20 actores entre 20-25 para chekear hasta sus 30.

    Sarinana se cree Norah Jones? LOL, su debut fue bastante aceptable. Algo diferente a lo que generalmente sale de la region.

  16. Está bien, me convenciste, Keira no tiene nada interesante a futuro.

  17. si me dices mas nombres, mas chere la discusion xD

  18. Se va estrenar la nueva de Tim Burton, chequea a la nueva actriz (Mia Wasikowska), me parece que tiene potencial, pero nadie la conoce. Bueno ojalá que con esta película despegue su carrera y se haga más popular, así seguirá saliendo en nuevos proyectos, porque al final eso es lo que cuenta. Y hablando de actores y actrices ¿quiénes son tus preferidos?, sin importar edad, religión, nacionalidad, etc.

You were Billy Elliot, I had a huge crush on you – I think you dated Evan Rachel Wood, and also pissed away your charisma by saying you didn’t wanna do a film related to a musical ever, unless it’s something like Moulin Rouge! 2 — which is in itself a very bad idea.
