At Talent Management, we have talent ranging from just a few months old to those in their old age, but there’s nothing quite like starting young to kick start your career.

To demonstrate, we’ve chosen our top three child stars who have all, at 13 years or younger, begun their career in the entertainment industry.

Our top three are not only well on their way to the big time, but also fashionistas in the making, praised by both the Talent Management team and the rest of the fashion world for their great sense of style.

Willow Smith, aged 10

At only 10 years old, the uber-fashionable daughter of Hollywood star Will Smith has huge ambitions… and when we say huge, we mean Lady Gaga huge. “I would like to be a very well-known artist. I would like to be as big as Lady Gaga. I would like to be bigger,” she recently told NME magazine. Smith has only just launched her music career having signed to Jay-Z’s record label Roc Nation. Before that she broke into the entertainment industry with her acting role in the film I Am Legend and later in Kit Kittredge: An American Girl.

Elle Fanning, aged 12

Younger sister of fellow actress Dakota Fanning, Elle is perhaps the lesser known of the two siblings. However, we think she’s heading in the same direction as sister, and at just 12 she’s already being acknowledged for her supporting role in Babel and main role in Phoebe in Wonderland.  She’s also starred in Daddy Day Care, a role which she was nominated for Young Artist’s ‘Best Young Ensemble in a Feature Film’, and has had several TV guest appearances, including CSI Miami and Dirty Sexy Money.

Chloë Grace Moretz, aged 13

US actress Moretz is known for her roles in (500) Days Of Summer, Amityville Horror, and more recently, Let Me In and Kick-Ass, which she won Scream Awards ‘Best Breakthrough Performance – Female’ for. For such an impressive list of successes, Moretz is incredibly down to earth, and was recently quoted saying: “I don’t do it for the fame and everything. I do it because it’s what I love and it makes me happy to do it.”
