Young people have made a name for themselves when it comes to Hollywood, theater, and movies. Whether it's Debby Reynolds, Sally Field, Drew Barrymore, Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen, Emma Watson, or even Jennifer Lawrence, there's one thing they had in common: they made a huge impact as youngsters in the entertainment business.
Well, I'm here to tell you that there's another youngster capable of sweeping Hollywood off it's feet in only a matter of a few years. Her name is Joey King.
Why? Good question. I believe she fits the Stardom Mold as I call it. It's the attributes and abilities an actor/actress has in order to strike it rich or famous or even rich AND famous in the movie business. So what's the Stardom Mold and how does she fit into it?
She's Got A Full Portfolio
If there's one thing that makes an actor/actress famous is the movies she/he act in. For a girl who's only fifteen, Joey has acted in more movies then a lot of smaller name older actors. She's in Horton Hears A Who, Quarantine, Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs, Ramona and Beezus, Battle Los Angeles, Crazy, Stupid, Love, The Dark Knight Rises, Oz, The Great and Powerful, and White House Down! And that's just to name a few of the movies she's been in. She's also going to be in Independence Day 2 and Smartass. So yes, she has some pretty darn great experience at acting.
She Has A Sense of Style
She's fifteen guys and that's what she's dressing like. Imagine her in three or four years! Is that creepy? Every actor/actress has to impress a little right? She's got the perfect smile, a style that fits her perfectly, and knows how to act like an adult at movie premieres and red carpets.
She's Already Awesome on Talk Shows
One thing about these young actor/actresses is sometimes they get scared off when it comes to talk-shows. Not Joey! She loves to laugh, be awkward, be funny, and be herself in front of the camera. She brings a very familiar Jennifer Lawrence kind of feel to any talk show she appears on.
She's Very Versatile
Some young actors can only do one kind of movie or TV show. A lot of the young actors can't even act in both types of entertainment; it's one or the other. Joey, on the other hand, has just about as much TV experience as movie experience. Yeah, she's been on TV A TON and she's also done the voice of several characters for animated movies. So if you consider all that, she can do voice acting, TV acting, horror movies, action movies, and even comedies. Where is she going to strike out? Pretty much nowhere!
She (Hopefully) Keeps Her Cool
Hopefully, Joey won't go the way of a lot of teen actors and start a downward plunge into drugs and money-addiction. Miley Cyrus, for example, is the opposite way we want to see Joey go. She seems to be like the person that will keep her cool and be a loveable, teen actress with a lot of spunk and flame.
She's Already Helping The Sick
She's only fifteen years old, and she's already visiting little kids in hospitals. She's making their day! That's something you don't see very much from younger actor/actresses. Will she keep it up? I hope! She could be a literal super-heroine later in life. Heck, she probably already is one now!
So do you think Joey King will be the next rising star of Hollywood? Let me know in the comments!
