10 Most Famous Teen Actors

Saturday, March 12 by Mason Kaho

The list of the 10 most famous teen actors includes some of the most exciting performers on the silver screen today and classic actors who made their mark in years past. A good teen actor is hard to find, as people that young often lack the maturity and intensity to deliver believable performances. This guys on this list, however, have shown they can entertain audiences far and wide.

  1. Daniel Radcliffe. Radcliffe, one of the most famous teen actors, had the good fortune of landing the role of Harry Potter in the franchise of the same name. Starring in these films throughout his teen years, Radcliffe became one of the most widely recognizable actors in the world.
  2. Christopher Knight. Knight is better known as Peter Brady, from the insanely popular show “The Brady Bunch.” This show was on in the late 60s but has lived on in syndication ever since, making the entire cast well-known, and making Knight one of the most famous teen actors ever.
  3. Malcolm Jamal Warner. Jamal Warner, one of the most famous teen actors, starred on “The Cosby Show” as the rambunctious son of beloved TV dad Cliff Huxtable, played by Bill Cosby. The show spent many years as TV’s most popular series.
  4. Taylor Lautner. Lautner stars as Jacob in the very popular “Twilight” film franchise, becoming a teen sex symbol and heartthrob. Known for his good looks, martial arts skills, and six pack, he has become one of the most famous teen actors.
  5. Corey Feldman. Feldman was a huge star in the 1980s, becoming one of the most famous teen actors with his role in such films as “The Goonies,” “Stand by Me,” and “The Lost Boys.” His adult work has been less wide-ranging, to say the least.
  6. Corey Haim. Also one of the most famous teen actor he teamed up with Feldman to become the informal “The Two Coreys,” later made official with a  show of the same name on cable. He was in “The Lost Boys” and “License to Drive” and died tragically young, at 38.
  7. Jason Bateman. Bateman rose to stardom as a child actor, then becoming even more famous in his teens. His most family role was a regular on “Valerie” (a show which was renamed several times) and he also starred on “Silver Spoons.”
  8. Kyle Massey. Massey got his big break by getting offered a role in the Disney show “That’s So Raven.” He has added to his resume with other Disney shows and a movie, and by having a very successful appearance on the TV’s “Dancing With the Stars.”
  9. Barry Williams. Williams starred alongside Knight in “The Brady Bunch,” playing the role of Greg. He reached the status of teen idol, and added to his allure by supposedly going on a date with TV mom Florence Henderson.
  10. Rupert Grint. Grint plays Ron Weasley in the “Harry Potter” series, along with Daniel Radcliffe. Though Ron is second fiddle to star Harry, Grint’s role in the films has led to him being one of the most famous teen actors in the world.
