Most child stars had some awkward moments when they were first put in front of TV cameras.
Either they had to act clumsy for it could create more relatable characters on screen or the directors knew their natural unwieldy manners were just right to build storylines.
Despite being in the shadows of the bigger stars, child actors have always managed to deliver the kind of entertainment that even adult audience could enjoy.
In fact, toddler or early teenage celebrities have also created a long-lasting image in the minds of viewers even after many years.
As a result many fans always think of those child actors as little boys and girls from favorite TV series or old movies, when in reality they have grown up to become somewhat different individuals. As their acting skills improved, their physical features also changed.
Believe it or not, some of them actually have gone through the unlikely transformation and turned into superb beauties. Here are just a few.
10 AnnaSophia Robb
The rude Violet Beauregarde in the Charlie and The Chocolate Factory is portrayed by none other than AnnaSophia Robb.
In the movie, she is an aloof champion constantly pushed by her mother to be the best in all things she does from chewing gum to martial arts.
Her seemingly uncontrollable desire to win any contest eventually leads her to transforming into a ginormous blueberry after eating one of Willy Wonka’s candies.
She has done plenty of acting after the movie and actually will appear in several upcoming movies and TV shows as well.
You may not recognize her today, because she has also changed into unsurprisingly gorgeous young woman.
9 Tom Felton And Evanna Lynch
When 13-year-old Tom Felton came to the casting of Harry Potter, he didn’t know much about the story that everyone was talking about.
Some even said that Felton actually was considered for the main role of the movie, but producers decided that he would be more suitable for playing a villain character.
In addition to his role as Draco Malfoy in Harry Potter film series, Felton has appeared in more than a dozen of other movies. He too has changed a lot.
Another one from the cast of Harry Potter film series is Evanna Lynch, who portrayed Luna Lovegood.
Of course Emma Watson’s Hermione is too big of a deal that Lovegood spends much time under her shadow. Lynch is 28 years old now, putting some weight, and looking s*xier than ever.
8 Michelle Trachtenberg
The expressive (if not huge) eyes and courageous attitude of Harriet M. Welsch in Harriet the Spy could only happen because of Michelle Trachtenberg.
After a great career as child female actor, Trachtenberg has been in many movies and TV series; in many of them she portrayed the beautiful villain characters.
She does have a dramatic look that gets even more charming over the years. Trachtenberg was once the cover girl of Maxim when she was 25 years old in March 2011. It has been a decade since then, yet she still looks as great.
7 Taylor Lautner
One of the first major TV gigs for Taylor Lautner was on The Bernie Mac Show. He played the character Aaron, one of Jordan’s classmates, in the second season of the show.
While you can still see some resemblances of his younger years in his face (and hair) now, the Twilight Saga’s Jacob Black is undoubtedly a different better s*xier version of the same person.
For many of his scenes in Part 2 of The Twilight Saga, MTV Movie Awards gave him the recognition as Best Shirtless Performance. That is how s*xy he is.
