In NYLON magazine’s most recent Young Hollywood Issue, only the latest and greatest talent was featured. To top this already fabulous issue off, several of the young stars and starlets strutting flawless TEMPTU faces!
You know the old saying, “When one door closes, another door opens”? Well this statement has certainly proved true for seventeen year old Julia Garner. She explains in her NYLON spread that she narrowly missed being cast in MTV’s newest series Skins…which then led to another audition. That audition scored her a role in Sundance favorite Martha Marcy May Marlene. Instead of just one door opening Garner’s roll as Lucy opened an entire hallway! “I get messengered 2 or 3 scripts a week”, says Garner. Long story short, we’ll be seeing a lot of this young starlet in the future.
Another Sundance approved seventeen year old to keep your eyes open for is Alex Shaffer. Wrestling for as long as he can remember, Shaffer got his big break when a friend told him about a casting call for a “high school wrestler”. Alex almost didn’t go! Turns out that casting call landed him his starring role in the film Win,Win. He’s currently getting TONS of attention for his role as Kyle, played opposite Paul Giamati, and plans to pursue acting full time. “ I don’t care if I miss prom”, Shaffer told NYLON. Well we wouldn’t either, with the winning streak this kid is on!
