Amandla Stenberg and Jackie Emerson at 2012 Rising Stars
They’re already stars to Hunger Games fans, but Amandla Stenberg who plays Rue and Jackie Emersonwho was Foxface have been named among The 7th Annual Popcorn N Roses Rising Stars List!
There’s no doubt, that even though their time with The Hunger Games is over, we will be seeing a lot more of both actresses in coming months and years.
#6 Female Rising Star of 2012: Jacqueline Emerson
* Featured role in one of the hottest movies of the year, “The Hunger Games”
* Has her own YouTube channel promoting her music career
* Very active in charity work
Jacqueline is completely unlike her ruthless, conniving “Hunger Games” character Foxface, and that’s a good thing…trust us. Although the film was Jackie’s first major film role, we’re betting that it’s only a launching point for her career. Her YouTube channel shows off her music very well; she’s also a gifted vocalist. And she’s also done voiceover work in the past, providing various voices for the 2004 TV series “Father Of The Pride”. She’s got a good head on her shoulders, she knows what she wants when it comes to a career, and she’s taking the point and making it happen..and it couldn’t happen to a more talented and deserving young lady.
“Son Of The South” – a period drama about the civil rights movement, Jacqueline has a featured role
#2 Female Rising Star of 2012: Amandla Stenberg
* Has one of the most pivotal roles in the spring smash “The Hunger Games”
* A huge career in commercials leading to acting success
* Started her career as a child model for Disney
Amandla plays Rue, the little girl whose demise triggers a major uprising in the spring hit “The Hunger Games”. With almost no lines – her character is seen a great deal of the time and not heard, which makes even more impressive that she takes over her part of the film, and the chemistry she has with her co-star, 2011 #3 Female Rising Star Jennifer Lawrence, is utterly amazing. With a very successful print ad career AND a very successful commercial career as well already under her belt, it’s only a matter of time before this 13 year old beauty takes off towards major stardom.
She has none announced at the moment, presumably because she’s also a full-time student. But we’ll be watching her every move over the next couple of years because she’s just AWESOME!
