There is a strange and frightening pattern: most of the child actors who played cult movie roles in childhood, for some reason either do not continue their acting career, or die at an early age from bad habits. Psychologists do not give an exact answer why this phenomenon turns out to be so frequent, leaving in vague formulations about deprivation of childhood. This material will tell about the actors who gained fame in childhood, but did not break down and became, as a result, progressive and famous personalities.
1. Leonardo DiCaprio
Many people mistakenly believe that Leonardo DiCaprio happened in our life at the time of the release of "Titanic". This film remained the highest grossing film for 12 years. It was possible to visit this film in the cinema of post-Soviet countries only in a packed cinema hall. But no, Leo did not appear in the film industry then.
In fact, the actor has been filming since his teens. Experienced fans of post-Soviet television series remember how cars did not drive through the city streets at the hour when the next episode of the American "Santa Barbara" was running in the early nineties - right after the fall of the Iron Curtain due to the collapse of the "scoop." This series simply paralyzed the post-Soviet cities - it was watched by young and old, men and women. So: Leo DiCaprio played Mason Capwell as a child. And this was his third role!
2. Alexey Serebryakov
The powerful Russian character actor Alexei Serebryakov was not at all born with the face of a maniac to start playing vivid roles in adulthood. Alexey began his film career at the age of 13. His first starring role was in the film "Eternal Call" in the genre of a family saga, based on the novel of the same name by Anatoly Ivanov. This film is remembered by many of our film lover parents. The project was filmed at Mosfilm from 1973 to 1983.
Based on the events of half a century (from 1906 to 1961), the film shows the history of the Savelyev family. Like their fellow villagers, they go through two wars (with Japan and the First World War), a revolution, the Civil War, collectivization and a period of repression, the Great Patriotic War and the post-war period.
3. Daniel Radcliffe
The performer of the cult role of Harry Potter got into our material by a miracle. The fact is that the little actor was so hated by his fame at an early age, it was so hard for him to be recognized everywhere that he began to hate everything around him and sought solace in alcohol and drugs. But Daniel managed to cope with addiction and become the top British actor today. The actor plays mainly in the theater, but at the same time seeks the opportunity from time to time to appear in amazing films, from the game in which the blood just runs cold: the parable of "Horns", "Notes of a young doctor" by Bulgakov, "Howl", in which he performs the forefather of the beatniks Ginsberg, - when you watch these films, you cannot stop being amazed at Radcliffe's talent.
4. Anna Kamenkova
Actress Anna Kamenkova first starred in a movie in the film "Girl looking for a father" at the age of 5. Her career is very extensive, she acted in films all her life, played in the theater. She is currently starring in top Russian television series. But among them, Anna chooses only those projects that seem worthy. For example, the series "Pregnancy Test", "Family Affair" and "Freud's Method". The film with her participation "Three Sisters" in 2017 was shown in cinemas in Europe. In addition to filming and working in the theater, Anna Kamenkova is known as a master of dubbing. Her voice is spoken by many heroes of not only Soviet and Russian films, but also famous foreign films, for example, Whitney Houston in The Bodyguard, Jodie Foster in The Silence of the Lambs and Julia Roberts in Notting Hill.
