The Sundance Film Festival is a perennial showcase for up-and-coming talent. Who will be the next starlet darling to take Hollywood by storm? Here, a look at four contenders.


AMBYR CHILDERS

Age:
24

Hometown: Murietta, Calif.

Channeling: Reese Witherspoon. Not only does she bear a more than passing resemblance to the perky Oscar winner, but she also got married (to producer Randall Emmett) and had a baby at a young age; daughter London is nearly three.

Known For: Childers, who landed a job on “All My Children” in high school, had a memorable role as Philip Seymour Hoffman’s daughter Elizabeth Dodd in “The Master” and currently appears in “Gangster Squad.”

Sundance Moment: As eldest daughter Iris in Jim Mickle’s horror remake “We Are What We Are,” a surprisingly entertaining film about a cannibal family, Childers gives new meaning to the term “bringing home the bacon.” “It’s really about the relationship between two sisters who happen to have a very dark family,” she said.

Up Next: The film “2 Guns” starring Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg and the Showtime series “Ray Donovan,” starring Liev Schreiber and Jon Voight.

 

NEXT: Julia Garner >>
