Unlike most toddlers who can hardly even kick a ball at the age of 3, Kirsten Caroline Dunst entered into modeling and featured in a few commercials. Three years later came her first role in Woody Allen’s New York Stories. Work kept pouring in after that, with Dunst appearing in movies such as The Bonfire of the Vanities and Interview with the Vampire: The Vampire Chronicles.
Very few people in history have had the honor of working in a Steven Spielberg movie. To do it before the age of 10 is an even greater achievement not found in many CVs. Drew Barrymore is one such person who did precisely that at the young age of six. She starred in Spielberg’s 1992-sci-fi E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial long before she became a huge name in Hollywood.
It’s fair to say that if it hadn’t been for Frodo Baggins, most people would probably never know Elijah Wood. We can claim that the now 40-year-old American actor has been in the industry almost since he was born. At the age of 8, he grabbed a small role in Back to the Future Part II, later also featuring in movies such as Paradise and The Good Son.
