Average listal rating (980 ratings) 7.7  IMDB Rating
1. Jodie Foster
Jodie Foster heads the list, she is a spectacularly talented actress. I was amazed by her performance as a teenager in 'Taxi Driver' and in so many movies as an adult.

Abhi's rating:

Average listal rating (1882 ratings) 6.9  IMDB Rating
2. Kirsten Dunst
Stunning in 'Interview with a Vampire' and 'The Virgin Suicides', she's had a very successful adult career. Her first 'proper' adult role was probably 'Spider-Man' where she wasn't playing a high-schooler for the complete length of the movie.

Abhi's rating:

Average listal rating (1306 ratings) 7.2  IMDB Rating
3. Winona Ryder
Another actress who has been a critical favourite for many many years. I really liked her as a teenager in 'Lucas' and 'Edward Scissorhands'. As an adult, like Jodie Foster, her list of great performances is very long.

Abhi's rating:

Average listal rating (862 ratings) 6.7  IMDB Rating
4. Anna Paquin
She was wonderful in 'The Piano' and was recently the star of the HBO series 'True Blood'. She's had an interesting career as an adult.

Abhi's rating:

Average listal rating (2462 ratings) 8.2  IMDB Rating
5. Natalie Portman
Completely charming in 'Leon', she has set the screen alight with her adult performances as well. Her breakthrough adult role was 'Closer'.

Abhi's rating:

Average listal rating (1111 ratings) 7.3  IMDB Rating
6. Christina Ricci
Loved her in 'Now and Then' and 'The Ice Storm' as a kid. Her adult career hasn't been as great as her talent deserves but she was great in her role on the TV series 'Ally McBeal' and in 'Monster'.

Abhi's rating:

Average listal rating (1947 ratings) 8  IMDB Rating
7. Scarlett Johansson
She was a introverted traumatized teen in 'The Horse Whisperer' and is a very sought after actress today. Her breakthrough adult roles came while she was still a teenager in 'Lost in Translation' and 'Girl with a Pearl Earring'.

Abhi's rating:


Child actresses that have captivated me with their acting, both as children and as adults.

Solid choices and completely agree with #1 spot. IMHO Jodie's best child role was The Little Girl Who Lives Down The Lane where she matched Alexis Smith and Martin Sheen in skill. (Nice still of Freaky Friday BTW, just as she was making barbed comments to her father's secretary.)
Natalie Portman was incredible (heart-breaking too) in Leon. Kirsten Dunst was astonishing in Interview With The Vampire.
Nice job. (Now I've got some films to watch to catch up).
