List Rules Any celebrities who were born after 1996.

Before we know it, all the great actors and actresses from this generation will all be old and receiving Lifetime Achievement Awards instead of Oscars and Emmys... Who is going to fill their shoes? Here's a list of up and coming young actors and actresses that have the potential to be the next big stars. This list includes the best teenage male and female stars under 20 - new celebrities already recognized for their work in film and TV.

Most of the rising stars at the top of the list are female celebs like Elle Fanning, Maisie Williams, Chloe Grace Moretz, and Ariel Winter. Several of these up and coming celebrities, such as Hailee Steinfeld and Tom Holland, are turning 21 this year and will be removed from the list, leaving room for the next generation of Hollywood actors and actresses who will take their place. 

If you think that any up and coming stars of film and TV will become celebrities, make sure to add them to the list.
