So who will follow in the steps of Tom Cruise, Brad Pitt, Jude Law and other? Most likely these 10 most promising actors under 25.
Best Actors Under 25
Tom Holland (Born in 1996)
The English actor has the biggest chance of stardom in his hands, literally, as he is playing Spider-Man in the third revamp of the beloved franchise, therefore he also needs to bring it in order to offer something fresh. But his commitment to everything he does is undeniable, as is his charisma which is a huge part of Spider-Man. Tom proved his range in the survival movie The Impossible in which he just might be the actual lead despite two strong, adult stars acting beside him.
Ansel Elgort (Born in 1994)
