Actor Paul Newman said that. The following kids tried to be actors but ended up wanting to be children instead. They only made one film, then left the business. Which would you have liked to see more performances from?

There are two photos I'm waiting to be approved to add to the list.

PS - I'm pushing the "one film" thing a little - For example, if they guested on a few TV shows and made a movie after they became adults, I'm counting it as close enough...

I'm surprised you (or anyone) has/ve heard of it. I loved it as a child but I think it's one of the films on the list that is lower profile.

He made several films since then. And won an Oscar. Perhaps you didn't read the introduction?

The Scottish boy from My Life so Far was sensational (as is the film). Robert Norman. One wonders why he never made another film. And why he's not included.

Glad this is live but it's a tough one.

I picked Amir Farrokh Hashemian and Bahare Seddiqi from Children of Heaven because they are freakin' heartbreaking. The emotion they convey even without saying a word is incredible. I highly highly recommend the film if you haven't seen it. Like, if I could afford it I'd buy every person on this board a copy.

But bubbling right under them are:
Danny Lloyd - The Shining
Florrie Dugger - Bugsy Malone
Catinca Untaru - The Fall
The Henry Sisters - The Help
Thelonious Bernard - A Little Romance
Gaspard Manesse - Au Revoir Les Enfants
Lewis McGibbon - Millions
and especially Bella Riza in Hideous Kinky
