What are you watching right now? There’s so much going on in the movie industry, it’s a bit hard to keep up. But some actors are getting too much attention to ignore, and it’s because of their exceptional acting that we have no choice but to notice them.
You may have heard some of these names, but others are new and surprising. Sometimes movies have us all wrapped up in them that we don’t even notice the actors outside of the movies, we don’t pay attention to their real names because all that matters to us is what their names are in the movies they act in that we can’t get enough of. But who are these new actors taking all the attention, and what should we expect from them soon?
Max Harwood auditioned for a role and was picked out of over three thousand other applicants. This landed him the gig for the large screen adaptation of "Everybody’s Talking About Jamie." Before this, the young British actor was a 23-year-old second-year student at the Urdang Academy in London.
He’s set to take on the musical Everybody’s Talking About Jamie, playing the role of an unconventional young teenager whose dream is to become a drag queen, a very different dream than other teens his age. The coming of age musical as directed by Jonathan Butterell addresses certain social issues and sees the 16-year-old Harwood overcome discrimination and bullying to achieve his goals and eventually step into the limelight.
Speaking of teenagers, the eighteen-year-old Iman Vellani is a star that the industry can’t get enough of already. The Canadian actress is fresh out of high school and has bagged a role as Disney plus’ Ms. Marvel in an upcoming series based on the character from Ms. Marvel comic book.
It’s a record-breaking role as Vellani will be Marvel’s very first Muslim superhero and many are excited about how significant that is, especially the Muslim community, noting particularly a comment made by the actor, Kumail Nanjiani on Twitter which read, “Your work is going to mean so much to so many people, myself included.”
Vellani will play the role of a teenage Pakistani-American living in New Jersey who suddenly develops the ability to shapeshift. For many marvel cinematic universe fans, the excitement is simply getting an adaptation of the Ms. Marvel timeline that they may never get to see in the avengers’ sequels.
The Chalamet name has been buzzing everywhere in the media lately especially since Timothy Chalamet just co-hosted the Met Gala fundraiser. However, his sister, Pauline Chalamet isn’t recognized enough and is an actress worth keeping an eye on in the coming years.
She made a notable appearance in The King Of Staten Island, a show that starred popular actor Pete Davidson. Pauline is making her debut on television with The Lives of College Girls, a comedy series soon to hit our screens.
She will be starring as a valedictorian from a remote town who gets into the New England College and becomes swayed by the permissive liberties of coeds. Considering her brother’s rise to fame we may assume those acting genes run in the family and this HBO max project is Pauline’s platform to stardom.
