Hollywood is growing and eventually will outgrow some of its older stars. It is from these talented actors that inspiration has been drawn and so they will never be forgotten. However, handing over the baton to the future generation is part of every industry, and even though we may never see another Tom Hanks or Scarlet Johansson, the new generation of stars is every bit as exceptional as their predecessors. You’ll be hearing a lot more of their names in the coming years and it’s important to get acquainted with them.
Talia Ryder is a star who absolutely slayed in the 2020 ‘Never Rarely Sometimes Always’ movie written by Eliza Hittman. She played the role of Skylar, the cousin of Autumn, a seventeen-year-old girl who got pregnant and wanted to have an abortion.
This teenager whose role was acted by Sidney Flanagan lives in her small Pennsylvania community home and realizes there’s no way she could get an abortion on her own without her parents’ approval as required by the state. Skylar is the one who shoulders her cousin’s plight and plans a daring road trip by bus to New York and back so her cousin could get an abortion at Planned Parenthood.
Ryder was an exceptional actress in the movie that showed us the intricacies and challenges of navigating an abortion decision as a teenager as she was the support that got her cousin through that tough period and helped her make it back home safely.
Ryder’s first appearance on Broadway was in the movie ‘Matilda’ in 2015 and she is set to be part of a remake of ‘West Side Story’ by the end of this year in December.
Get ready to spot Jayme Lawson in a Batman movie coming to your screens in 2022. Some of the acting skills of this up-and-coming actress can be seen in the 2020 dance movie ‘Farewell Amor’ where she played the character of Sylvia.
Lawson was a teenager in this movie who had to live in a single room apartment up in Brooklyn with both parents. The teenager traveled from Angola where she’s from, all the way to the United States to be with her father as a family.
But the tight space created a lot of problems with them in the house and as the problems got tougher they eventually discovered a common interest in dancing which ended up bringing the entire family closer than they had ever been. In this Batman movie coming next year, she will be playing the role of Bella Real, a Gotham politician aspiring to hold office in the city.
Helena Zengel is one of the youngest actresses making waves in the movie industry. You may not have seen her in the different movies she has acted in but that may be because she acted in those movies and tv shows while in Germany, her original country. She started her career at the age of seven acting a role in ‘Looping’ by Leonie Krippendorf.
Now at the age of 12, she will be acting in ‘News of the World’ alongside Tom Hanks as Johanna Leonberger, a young child who was kidnapped by the Kiowa people, a community that rose after the civil war in the West. Eventually, Captain Jefferson (Tom Hanks) crosses her path and sets on a mission to take her back to her family.
