AMAZING KIDS IN FILM HISTORY WHOSE ROLES WERE EPIC
Added on: 5th Sep 2016
THOMAS J. SENNETT
Thomas (portrayed by the boy wonder of the nineties
Macaulay Culkin died while trying to find his crush Vada’s mood ring.
She had lost it the day before in the woods near a beehive
hanging from a tree. The most tragic part of this beautiful love story
is that Thomas knew he was allergic to bee stings but still took
the risk in the name of unconditional, innocent love.
This beautiful pale-skinned, brown-eyed girl from the Harry Potter
films discovered her “magic” powers at the innocent age of
eleven when she received a letter from Hogwarts School of
Witchcraft and Wizardry stating that she had been accepted
as a student. Since then she has become our favourite witch.
Lydia (Winona Ryder) from Beetlejuice is a serious but kind
and sensitive Goth girl who feels isolated in the world. Her
father and stepmother don’t take anything she says seriously
and often ignore her to pursue their own selfish desires.
Lydia loves writing poetry, photography, and anything
supernatural and paranormal. She’s a really special kid who
never got the love she deserved from her parents and for
that alone we love her even more.
Richie Rich (Macaulay Culkin) has every toy any little boy could
ever want, in addition to an adoring mother and father. The one
thing Richie doesn’t have is friends. However, when his parents
suddenly go missing, Richie hooks up with a group of kids
who become his friends and helps him save his folks.
Hit-Girl might not be the protagonist of the Kick-Ass comics and
films but she’s awesome regardless. She might be young but
she’s super effective at kicking behind and was trained by her
father from an early age to be a costumed superhero. She’s
just a kid who saves the world from the bad guys.
If you’ve seen Kramer vs. Kramer you can’t help but feel bad
for little Billy who is in an awkward situation where his parents
(Dustin Hoffman and Meryl Streep) fight like mad dogs in court
for custody of him.
The orphan from Martin Scorsese’s Hugo lives in the walls of a
train station in Paris and watches over the big clocks. He lives in
constant fear of being caught by the station inspector and brought
to an orphanage. In the meantime he tries to repair a robot
built by his real father.
It would be blasphemous not to include on a list that has the word
“kid” in its title the one and only Daniel LaRusso aka the original
karate kid. Even though after re-watching the film a few years
ago I realized Daniel wasn’t all that innocent and nice as we
originally thought, he remains a classic character.#
Way before Léon and Mathilda there was Iris “Easy” Steensma
(a twelve-year-old prostitute portrayed by a young Jodie Foster)
and Travis Bickle in one of the most iconic movies ever:
Taxi Driver. If you’ve seen the film you know why Iris is on this
list; if not, then go watch the film.
