Top 20 Rising Stars Under 30

E-mail Print PDF
From Ellen Page to Emile Hirsch, we've seen some amazing new talent emerge over the last year. But who are the new crop of hot young actors waiting in the Hollywood wings? Here are our predictions for the next-gen of A-list stars.

1. Emma Stone

Age: 19
Where You've Seen Her: As Jonah Hill's dream girl Jules in Superbad.
Coming soon: Emma will star with The Office's Rainn Wilson in comedy The Rocker and then appear with Anna Faris in The House Bunny.
Buzz factor: Read our complete interview with Emma and see our exclusive photos HERE.

2. Kristen Stewart

Age: 18
Where You've Seen Her: Stewart most recently had a cameo in Jumper, but you’ll most likely recognize her from Into the Wild, Zathura, The Messengers or Panic Room.
Coming Soon: This multi-genre actress will star in the upcoming flicks Welcome to the Riley’s and Adventureland as well as taking a lead role in the horror/romance Twilight.
Hotness factor: This natural beauty, born in Colorado and raised in Los Angeles, has come a long way since co-starring with Jodie Foster in Panic Room when she was just 12. Her performances have already caught the eye of many critics but it is her role as the teenager who falls for a vampire in Twilight that will make her a household name.

3. Amanda Seyfried

Age: 22
Where You’ve Seen Her: Amanda Seyfried is best known for her hilarious turn as ditzy Karen in Mean Girls. She was also part of the hot ensemble cast for Alpha Dog and starred in the HBO hit series, Big Love.
Coming Soon: Seyfried will soon be seen as the lead in this summer’s anticipated Broadway musical-turned-movie Mamma Mia!
Buzz Factor: After working her comedic charm as a supporting actress, this doll-faced golden girl is moving to bigger and better things with her lead role in Mamma Mia! We’re pretty sure that playing Oscar-winner Meryl Streep’s daughter in one of the biggest movies of the summer will gain Seyfried a legion of new fans.

4. Ben Barnes

Age: 26
Where You’ve Seen Him: Barnes began his career with a minor role in Stardust and recently hit it big by playing the title character in this summer’s The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian.
Coming Soon: You’ll be seeing this star’s gorgeous face next to Jessica Biel in Easy Virtue and then in Dorian Gray. And of course, he'll also return in the third installment of The Chronicles of Narnia (The Voyage of the Dawn Treader).
Buzz Factor: Since being picked off the stage by a casting agent during his performance in The History Boys, this English hunk has already planted his feet firmly on the path to Hollywood stardom.

5. Olivia Thirlby

Age: 21
Where You’ve Seen Her: This starlet is most recognized for the indie film hit Juno and recent release The Wackness, starring Mary-Kate Olsen and Aaron Yoo.
Coming Soon: Thirlby will be acting alongside Matt Damon in the drama Margaret, and will also be featured in upcoming films Safety Glass, Uncertainty, and New York, I Love You.
Buzz Factor: With the success of Juno under her belt, we've no doubt you'll enjoy seeing Thirlby embrace her indie sensibility and spread her homegrown New York charm in this year’s upcoming releases.

6. Robert Pattinson

Age: 22
Where You’ve Seen Him: The chisel-jawed Brit gained quite a few female fans with his role as handsome Triwizard Cup competitor Cedric Diggory in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.
Coming Soon: Having already appeared in one best-selling book series turned movie franchise, Pattinson will next repeat that formula with a lead role in the highly anticipated vampire movie Twilight, alongside fellow rising star Kristen Stewart.
Buzz Factor: Based on the hype surrounding Twilight, we’re betting that by the time the film releases on Dec.12 and starts raking in serious box office cash, Pattinson should be well on his way to becoming the next Jude Law.

7. Jim Sturgess

Age: 27
Where You’ve Seen Him: It was Sturgess’ breakout role in Across the Universe that made audiences fall in love with this London born actor. He has since appeared in The Other Boleyn Girl and more famously as an MIT math wiz turned card shark in 21.
Coming Soon: Sturgess will next star alongside Harrison Ford and Sean Penn in the drama Crossing Over. He will also share the spotlight with co-star
Rose McGowan in the British spy flick Fifty Dead Men Walking.
Buzz Factor: In addition to his upcoming Fall releases, Sturgess has snagged the lead role in horror movie, Heartless. With his devilish good looks and incredible singing voice it’s no wonder that this multi-talented actor is stealing the spotlight.

8. Aaron Yoo

Age: 25
Where You’ve Seen Him: This Korean actor has played supporting roles in a wealth of recent movies including Disturbia, 21, The Wackness and American Pastime.
Coming Soon: Yoo will be starring in the thriller Game before appearing in Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist and Kid Cannabis, a comedy about the two best friends’ rendezvous with “mary-jane” across the Canadian border.
Buzz Factor: Originally a writer, Yoo first began acting after discovering the “challenge of drama” in a Shakespeare summer workshop. Nick and Norah’s Inifinite Playlist looks to be a big indie hit and will no doubt earn Yoo even more attention.

9. Cast of 90210

Age: 25
Where You’ve Seen Them: AnnaLynne McCord was a seductive sex kitten in Nip/Tuck, Shenae Grimes was part of Degrassi: The Next Generation, Dustin Milligan starred in The Messengers with Kristen Stewart, Jessica Stroup hit the big screen in Prom Night and Tristan Wilds had a recurring role on HBO’s The Wire.
Coming Soon: The revamped 90210 will premiere in September and will see this ensemble cast of hot young talent taking on the trials and angsty tribulations of attending West Beverly High.
Buzz Factor: Move over Gossip Girl, there’s a new batch of rich kids in TV town. The CW’s 90210 is poised to reel in 20-something fans of the old show as well as teenage fans of the new incarnation.

10. Anton Yelchin

Age: 19
Where You’ve Seen Him: Yelchin was a child star in films like Hearts in Atlantis with Anthony Hopkins and House of D with Robin Williams. He has since added Alpha Dog and Charlie Bartlett to his impressive resume.
Coming Soon: Yelchin will be starring in Middle of Nowhere with Susan Sarandon, the new JJ Abrams Star Trek movie, in which he will play Chekov, and Terminator Salvation: The Future Begins as teenager Kyle Reese.
Buzz Factor: Not only is this up-and-coming actor going to be appearing in several highly anticipated upcoming films, but he is also an acoustic guitar enthusiast who is studying at USC.

11. Lizzy Caplan

Age: 26
Where You’ve Seen Her: Most recently you’ve seen her bite it onscreen as monster-victim Marlena in Cloverfield but Caplan first stole our bitter hearts as the awesomely snarky Janis Ian in Mean Girls.
Coming Soon: Caplan will next get to show off her acting chops alongside Harrison Ford and Sean Penn in the ensemble drama Crossing Over and then switch gears to star with Kate Hudson and Dane Cook in rom-com My Best Friend’s Girl.
Buzz Factor: Caplan has already carved herself a niche as the sexy yet sardonic support on both TV and film. Her comedic timing and deadpan delivery will serve her well for many years to come and that breakthrough leading lady role seems imminent.

12. Channing Tatum

Age: 28
Where You’ve Seen Him: Tatum has appeared in Coach Carter,
Supercross, She’s The Man, Step Up and Stop Loss.
Coming Soon: He will next star in The Trap, directed by Tom Hanks and wife Rita Wilson. He will also appear in a movie based on the best selling novel, Dear John by Nicholas Sparks. Other projects include a Vietnam drama called Pinkville with Bruce Willis, crime drama Public Enemies and the eagerly awaited 2009 GI Joe movie.
Buzz Factor: Despite being on several of those “50 Most Beautiful People” lists, Tatum is quickly proving he has the talent to back up his steamy good looks. Expect to see alot of this Hollywood hunk over the next few years.

13. Sara Roemer

Age: 23
Where You’ve Seen Her: Roemar is most recognized for her role in Disturbia alongside Shia LaBeouf. She has also appeared in Wristcutters: A Love Story, The Grudge 2 and Falling Up.
Coming Soon: Roemer will be starring in Waking Madison, a drama about a women coping with the problems of personality disorders and is currently filming the upcoming cheer comedy Fired Up.
Buzz Factor: This young starlet has come a long way since being discovered at the age of 15 at a 7-Eleven! Roemer’s sex appeal seems to match her talent, so much so that she was nominated for an MTV Movie Award for Best Kiss with Shia LaBeouf for their liplock in Disturbia.

14. Drake Bell

Age: 22
Where You’ve Seen Him: Bell began his career as a child actor in films like High Fidelity (in which he played a young John Cusack), but rose to stardom, and major teen heartthrob status, playing Drake Parker on the hit Nickelodeon show Drake & Josh.
Coming Soon: Bell will star along side Haley Bennett and Nick Zano in the upcoming on-campus comedy, College.
Buzz Factor: After surviving a near-fatal car accident in December of 2005 in which he suffered a fractured neck and broken jaw, Bell has made a full recovery and is happy to be working again. We figure if this tenacious talent can survive something like that, breaking out as a film star should be a piece of cake.

15. Jessica Lucas

Age: 22
Where You've Seen Her: Lucas appeared in this year’s monster hit Cloverfield and previously popped up in comedy She’s The Man and supernatural thriller, The Covenant.
Coming Soon: Lucas has some great projects coming up that will put her firmly in the spotlight. First she’ll star in upcoming horror flick Amusement and will then take a lead role in horror master Sam Raimi’s new movie, Drag Me to Hell.
Buzz Factor: Lucas grabbed some attention with her role in Cloverfield and now seems intent on keeping her fans on the edge of their seats. Her two upcoming horror thrillers could very well secure her a place as the new Scream Queen.

16. Mary Elizabeth Winstead

Age: 23
Where You’ve Seen Her: Besides gracing our June 2007 cover, Winstead is best known for playing Bruce Willis’ daughter in Live Free or Die Hard. Winstead also appeared in Tarantino’s Grindhouse contribution, Death Proof.
Coming Soon: A former dancer herself, Winstead will play a dancer in the upcoming drama Make It Happen.
Buzz Factor: There are rumors that this bright, young ingénue will be playing Michael Cera's love interest in Scott Pilgrim vs. the World. If this is true, Winstead will be propelled to leading lady status in no time.

17. Sean Faris

Age: 26
Where You’ve Seen Him: This heartthrob is best known for his role in the fight flick Never Back Down, and began his career with movies such as Yours, Mine and Ours, and Sleepover.
Coming Soon: Faris will be playing lead in the serial killer thriller The Glass Eye, and starring in another thriller, Brooklyn to Manhattan. He will also appear in the drama Forever Strong, which hits screens in September.
Buzz Factor: Named as one of Elle Girl’s 50 sexiest men, the Texas born rising star has not only made his mark in movies like Never Back Down, but has also had series regular status on TV shows Life As We Know It and Reunion.

18. Camilla Belle

Age: 21
Where You’ve Seen Her: Belle is most known for her role in the 2006 remake of When a Stranger Calls. Her other films include The Quiet and 10,000 B.C.
Coming Soon: Belle will be appearing in the upcoming movie Push, co-starring Dakota Fanning, Chris Evans and Djimon Hounsou.
Buzz Factor: Belle was nominated three years in row for a Young Artist Award from 1998-2000. With her Brazilian beauty it's no wonder that she is the face of Vera Wang’s fragrance Princess. She has the ability to demand attention on the
big screen and is clearly here to stay.

19. Joseph Cross

Age: 22
Where You’ve Seen Him: Cross scored his big screen debut in M. Night Shyamalan’s Wide Awake and followed it up with 2005’s, Strangers With Candy, but he is perhaps best known for playing the lead role of Augusten Burroughs in 2006’s Running With Scissors.
Coming Soon: Cross is set to play Philip in the upcoming comedy/drama Son of Mourning, also starring Heather Graham and Tim Curry.
Buzz Factor: Other than rocking out as the guitarist for the band Roostir, this breakthrough actor is getting some great roles in very prestigious films. In 2007, Cross was even nominated for the Critics Choice Awards’ Best Young Actor for Running With Scissors.

20. Minka Kelly

Age: 28
Where You’ve Seen Her: Kelly is best known for her role in TV drama Friday Night Lights and the horror flick The Pumpkin Karver.
Coming Soon: Kelly can soon be seen in the eccentric romantic comedy 500 Days of Summer, about a woman who does not believe that love exists until she meets a charmer played by Joseph Gordon-Levitt.
Buzz Factor: This brainy beauty was studying to become a surgical technician before she caught the acting bug and burst onto the scene playing cheerleader Lyla Garrity on the Emmy-winning Friday Night Lights.

Robert Pattinson and Alex Pettyfer is the most gorgeous boys in the whole wide world

I agree with this "britishgirl21" except for I think Alex Pettyfer should have been there! I can't wait for the movie "Tormented" and "New Moon"!!!! I love them both!!! I talked with my friends about it and the agreed with me, they love him too, but not as much as I love them!!!!:D

By the wy, I hope to get to see them sometime! So everyone keep your fingers crossed for me!

Love you Rob and Alex! Forever and ever!!
Rob Pattinson/Kristin Stewart
44 Sunday, 22 February 2009 11:01
This list is perfect cause Rob Pattinson and Kristen Stewart are there! I felt madly in love with Rob when I saw him in Twilight, and by the way I think Kristen Stewart is a great actress. Hopefully both of them will achieve stardom and everything! Rob is so gorgeous and by the way I love his accent (no wonder, I speak in the same way) and I love how he's so humble and.. I just.. love him! I like Kristen Stewart.. she's okay!

Rob, I hope you never forget your sweet homecountry! I by the way love Alex Pettyfer too!!! British boys are the most gorgeous in the world!!!:D
obsessive - but i like it!!! ;)
43 Monday, 09 February 2009 17:45
wow! twilight fans r crazy, but im 1 2 so i dont blame them!!
i think Kristen Stewart should be number 1, i've seen most of her films, and her performances are so memorable! she is really talented for her age (a year older than me!!!) so she definately deserves the top spot, who is emma stone? oh yeah, in superbad, the WORST film ive ever seen!! just my opinion, but her performance wasn't anything special at all, she dosn't deserve the top spot - kristen all the way!!!
Rob & Kristen the best !!!!!!
42 Sunday, 18 January 2009 01:58
New Mooner
Hallleeeerrrrr!!! my gosh! what's their criteria in judging??? Rob and Kristen should be in the number 1 and 2!!!! I dont even know whos in the number 1 and so on....

It's so crazy!!! I swear, all these comments are ONLY about Twilight!! I just hope that Kristen and Rob get to be bumped up on the list. They are not worth #2 and #6. They are reserved for #1!!!

I can't believe there are so many comments about Kristen and Rob here I thought I was the only fanatic! That is so totaly awsome! Why didn't they put those two on the top of the list? oh well... great job to everyone else on the list too and good luck to everybody
30 Saturday, 15 November 2008 15:56
Wiki'd Pattinson...
Seems like the kid has made some good choices on recent independent movies, but is getting over-exposed for a potential titanic flop. (Titanic indeed...hopefully he won't run away from acting over this.)

The Dali pic sounds a lot like one made about Oscar Wilde a while back, starring another living fangirl bait, Orlando Bloom.
29 Monday, 03 November 2008 16:11
Yay, twilight, basically all the comments are about here, but yeah, go Kristen and Rob!!
Some changes may be needed...
28 Sunday, 02 November 2008 09:51
I think that Rob should be #1...but I am a Twilighter so I may be a bit bias, but I think that after the release of Twilight others will agree.

I don't know Emma Stone so I don't know if she deserves the #1 spot.

Drake Bell should definately be higher on the list!

And they have some AMAZING acters/actress' up there but where in the world is SHIA LABEOUF...he is one of my favourite actors and has been in some huge movies!

But over-all it is a great list...well done to those that are on it!

p.s.I cannot WAIT for the Twilight movie-it will be AMAZING
27 Monday, 27 October 2008 02:29
Yay! Kristen and Rob! Bella and Edward! Whoo!
26 Tuesday, 21 October 2008 09:47
25 Saturday, 18 October 2008 13:01

24 Tuesday, 14 October 2008 11:21
They are both so young and dynamic...I pray they make it through the media craze with their souls intact ;) I am so happy and proud to see them make this list, they both really deserve the credit for their acting skills.
23 Friday, 10 October 2008 23:55

the movie will be as amazing as it looks
GOODJOB to all the other
actors and actresses for making the list
loads of luck
19 Tuesday, 29 July 2008 09:52
I am so glad to see Amanda Seyfried in that list, number 3. I remember watching her in Mean Girls and now aftre seeing her in Mamma Mia! I love her even more. The roles are so different and she's a very talented actress.

It's funny reading through all the comments about those two starring in Twilight, well I gave up after I read 'we love you Rob and Kristen' for the millionth time. Twilight fans seem to be a tad obbsessive? Or is that putting it lightly?
I saw Robert playing Cedric Diggory and the only thing memorable about his role was the fact his character was killed, guess that says a lot about what I thought of his acting. Mediocre in Harry Potter, but I shouldn't judge that was only one film and a lot of the acting on it I find to be quite bad anway.

Whatever, very cool list, haven't heard of some of the people mentioned so now I'm keeping a lookout for them.
18 Tuesday, 29 July 2008 09:51
haha, i read like twenty comments and they're all from Twilighters. Well, lemme add to that list!
Kirsten Stewart is quite the actress! and Robert Pattinson is!
i was really excited to see Ben Barnes on here too!
Haha Woah Now!
17 Tuesday, 29 July 2008 09:49
Priscilla Christina Avendano
All the comments are practically Twilighters! I'm psyched that Rob and Kristen made the top ten, and they're awesome, but what about the others? Ben Barnes is pretty awesome in his own way, and i never thought of Aaron Yoo as a nom, but there he is! I love the list, it was well chosen, and Emma Stone as #1? Hmm, she's okay, but she's still growing on me. haha.
GO Kristen and Rob!
16 Tuesday, 29 July 2008 09:48
Congrats to my two fave rising stars! ;)
15 Tuesday, 29 July 2008 09:46
Kristen and Rob are both amazing actors and I'm not surprised that they've reached this milestone. They're almost on every single 'Top Rising Stars' list that exists. XD
They have their whole career ahead of them and Twilight will help them rise to become promising stars.
I know you guys will do an amazing job on-screen. Congratulations and best wishes to the both of you!
Oh my freaking Lanta!
14 Tuesday, 29 July 2008 09:45
#1 fan of Twilight!
I am happy for Robert and Kristen! I just rented 'Penelope' just to see the exclusive scene and it was AWESOME! I didn't like Robert as Edward untill I saw that, sure he's still not my Edward but I don't think anyone will ever amount to that. So...Whoo!
Yet ANOTHER Twilight Fan
13 Tuesday, 29 July 2008 09:44
Yesss! Everyone seems to love Twilight and here, the extreme Twilighter that I am, promoting the movie and all four books! Please everyone read Twilight, New Moon, Eclipse and the approaching Breaking Dawn out on August 2nd. These books are amazing and so captiviating I promise you will fall in love with Edward and start worrying if people can read your
And also the Twilight movie is going to be amazing and not to mention they have ROB AND KRISTEN in it!! Enough said...
I say Rob and Kristen tie for the #1 spot, then Ben Barnes, then Channing Tatum, Jim Sturgess, Drake Bell and so on and so forth
12 Tuesday, 29 July 2008 09:42
Amy Halbern
That is awesome!! Kristen And Spunk Ransom or whatever.... are both amazing actors... My friends were watching panic room a while ago and they can't believe that, that was here in that movie she was so young and did an amazing job.. I had no idea that she also had a cameo in Jumper that was great!!! Rob besides being very good looking he is another amazing actor he blew me away in the Goblet of Fire.. Sadly enough I have not seen him his other movies that he has done.. I did hear that Vanity Fair was a very well done movie and he did a great job in that.. Wow!! the trailer for twilight talk about amazing I can't wait to see it.. I have seen a lot of other footage and interviews etc but nothing compares to the trailer... Kristen and Rob or Spunk have amazing chemistry on screen I know that they are way good friends but wow! They should be together.. I know they also spoke very highly of each other... I honestly didn't think that this movie or the books would be this big.. I think that Stephenie Meyer said the same thing.. Sadly it took me a couple of years to want to read the books.. I refused to read them and Now I am glad I did..
11 Tuesday, 29 July 2008 09:42
Twilight is soooo much bigger than i thought it was...i remember the old days when no one knew about the most amazing books/movie in history!!! Yey Kristen and ransom spunk! they should seriously be both at #1!!!
Wow, I am AMAZED just now
10 Tuesday, 29 July 2008 09:41
I also agree that Kristen and Rob should be on the top 2 spot. Rob was flawless in "Haunted Airman," "Bad Mother's Handbook," and "How to Be." When he plays a character, he plays them so well that it makes me forget that he's just acting the part. He becomes his character and puts in 100% into his craft. I love that he's playing Edward Cullen because I know he will do it justice. Kristen is also an amazing actress. I've seen a lot of her movies and I think she's wonderful in them.

I'd say about 97% of the comments on here are for Rob and Kristen aka Twilight related. We are taking over the world! I really REALLY hope that they will make New Moon, Eclipse, and Breaking Dawn. They must!

I'd also like to say I'm glad Ben Barnes is on the list because he is an amazing talent also.

My onyl question is where is SHIA LABEOUF?!!! He totally deserves to be near the top of the list because he has talent.
this list is amazing!
9 Tuesday, 29 July 2008 09:39
WOW a lot of Rob and Kristen Fans. II'm SUPER happy that they are up there. They are super talented! I'm so excited for Twilight. I'm very happy for Amanda Seyfried. She totally deserves this. Everyone just thinks of her as the stupid blond from Mean Girl. I can't wait for Mamma Mia!! BEN BARNES AND JIM STURGESS just rock my world. Not only are they amazing actors and pretty, they both can sing. Yes, Ben Barnes can sing. Anton Yelchin was just amazing in Charlie Bartlett. WOW! And Joseph Cross. I grew up watching this kid. It's so great he's on here. The one I'm most happy to see on here though is DRAKE BELL!! He totally deserves it and he's so talented. I heart you Drake!!
8 Tuesday, 29 July 2008 09:38
will someone comment on someone other than kris and rob?
I must say that I loved that Amanda Seyfried was #3! on Mean Girls I looked at her and saw a very
understated actress and am glad that she will get a chance to shine in MammaMia
I also think that Mary Elizabeth Winstead is a great talent and love her in everything she's in!
she's talented and beautiful in an understated and subtle way that makes her shine despite the fact
that most of her roles are cast in shadow by others..
Ben Barnes, Channing Tatum, Jim Sturgess and Sean Faris are all gods and great actors and I
hope to see them in future films(not all together though, too many hotties in one movie would be
too much for me!)
I also like seeing Camilla Belle, Jessica Lucus and Lizzy Caplin on here! I think that they are
talented and great to see on film!
Now as much as I love the support for Kristin and Rob from all the twilighters (i am one so dont take offence)
but really dominateing a comment section? we are taking over the world arnt we, or at the very least the internet!
so as awesome as it is to see all the kris/rob love we really should give great comments to all the other talented actors and actresses that worked so hard to make this list!
I agree with rob that kristin is one of the best actresses of her age, she's talented and all her characters are scene stealing and draw attention because of her perfect portrayals and rob did well in HP but seriously give other actors/actresses love!
they deserve it too!
Ben Barnes Rocks!

Yay for Ben getting on the list! He is the most talented and most handsome guy in the world!
Rob is way better than Jude Law

Rob's career will go above and beyond Jude Law because he has the double threat.... he can act and sing. Not to mention, what girl's heart doesn't stop when he looks into Bella's eyes?

I Love how Kristen Stewart is the onely one that says "hotness factore" instead of "buzz factor!!"
Robert Pattinson is Amazing!

Big Twilight fan and bigger Robert Pattinson Fan I love the books but I did not really get into the role of Edward tell I found out Rob was playing him then it all clicked for me he is perfect to play Edward. I have loved him for a wile and think he is one of the best soulful humans on this planet and a amazing actor. he really works hard and he has so much talent so way to go Rob you so deserve to make it big even though I know you will remain humble!
