Without a doubt, actors are the lifeblood that runs through Hollywood. They front projects, perform the projects and at one point in time, they were even used to sell the projects. But somewhere along the line things changed. Suddenly, the film industry relied less on the prowess of its stars and instead began making its money off recycled blockbusters or returning franchises. Thus, as long as there was an audience for these movies, it didn’t matter who starred in them.
However, while this has been the norm for quite some time now, things are slowly beginning to change once more — and the people responsible for this are the next generation of stars. The film and television industry is currently overflowing with an abundance of young actors making a name for themselves, impressing audiences with compelling performances and memorable characters.
