Or the 2010 film The Karate Kid?

He played the lead part of Bruno in the movie that had people everywhere sobbing into their hands. He was also in the British TV show Merlin which seemed to be pretty popular both sides of the pond. And then there was the 2011 film Hugo which was massive everywhere! Either way, for such a young actor, he’s done a lot of work so far and he doesn’t appear to be slowing down anytime soon.
2015 Will Bring: Ten Thousand Saints is a music / drama / comedy starring Asa Butterfield coming out in 2015 and you’ll also see Ethan Hawke and Emily Mortimer in this movie, set back in the 80’s.

20 – Uriah Shelton
Age: 17 – March 10th, 1997 in Texas, US
Best Known For: A teen actor and singer, Uriah Shelton is best known for his part in the 2010 film The Glades or the 2012 film Blue. He actually has no less than 27 credits to his name in the acting world so it’s definitely well worth keeping your eyes peeled for this guy in the future.
2015 Will Bring: There’s a TV short coming out in 2015 starring Uriah called Not My Problem in which he plays the part of Peter. With so many great things behind him already, we predict it won’t be long before he’s all you see on the silver screen!
