27 Young Actors Destined To Dominate Hollywood In The Next Decade

27. Keiynan Lonsdale


Known for: The Flash, Love, Simon, The Divergent Series: Insurgent,

In a rather short space of time, Keiynan Lonsdale has managed to make an impression on both cinema and TV audiences. The young actor got his first big break on Australian series Dance Academy and, upon the show's completion, he landed a supporting role in American blockbuster The Divergent Series: Insurgent, as well as a full-time role on The CW's The Flash.

As Wally West/Kid Flash, Lonsdale became the first actor to bring the beloved comic book character to life on the small screen and, after showing viewers what he could do, he joined spin-off show DC's Legends of Tomorrow as a series regular. Moreover, he recently received a lot of attention for his strong supporting performance in big-screen YA adaptation Love, Simon.

Now that he's taking a step back from his regular job in The CW's Arrowverse, and has another film role on the horizon (in the upcoming Weetzie Bat adaptation), this transition from TV to film could become a permanent one.
