WHETHER PLAYING SUBURBANITES, VAMPIRES, OR VAIN L.A. CRIMINALS, TINSELTOWN’S NEW BATCH OF BUZZED-ABOUT BEAUTIES IS ANYTHING BUT AVERAGE



CLAIRE JULIEN   You may recognize ice-blonde beauty Claire Julien from this summer’s Sofia Coppola-directed hit, The Bling Ring, about a string of robberies committed by a brat pack of teens who broke into the homes of Paris Hilton, Orlando Bloom, Rachel Bilson, and other celebrities and made off with millions of dollars’ worth of luxury goods. The scandal hit close to home for 18-year-old Julien, who grew up in the Hollywood Hills, with her Oscar-winning cinematographer dad, Wally Pfister (Inception). To prepare for the role of Chloe, the spunky lookout who was more concerned with having to pick up dog shit than with actually getting caught, Julien read the news and watched a lot of reality television, like Pretty Wild and The Kardashians, as well as surveillance footage of the actual crew. “I also drew from the various kids I grew up with and went to school with,” she says.  

ZOEY DEUTCH   With her long limbs and dark, striking features, it’s no wonder young actress Zoey Deutch has already landed a starring role, opposite Olga Kurylenko, as the wild and reckless Rose Hathaway, in 2014 fantasy film Vampire Academy: Blood Sisters, directed by Mark Waters of Mean Girls. “Rose is a half human, half vampire...a dhampir,” the 19-year-old says from London, where she is currently training for the action-packed role. No stranger to fantasy, Deutch played the tough chick castaway in this winter’s Beautiful Creatures, with Alice Englert and Alden Ehrenreich. Who else is on her short list of people to work with? Besides her parents, the actress Lea Thompson and Pretty in Pink director Howard Deutch, there is Emma Stone, Kristen Wiig, and Ryan Gosling (“duuuhhhh,” she says). “But, y’know, I’ll cross that bridge if I hopefully ever get there.”

LIANA LIBERATO   Since the age of three, doll-faced Liana Liberato has been acting. “It’s really the only thing I know,” says the Texan, whose mom enrolled her in community theater to help keep shyness away. She was cast in her first professional play at seven. Now 18, Liberato has proven her chops, as an abused teen in David Schwimmer’s Trust, with Clive Owen and Zoe Levin (also pictured here), and alongside Nicole Kidman and Nicolas Cage, in Joel Schumacher’s Trespass. Last summer she played a troubled girl falling for her first love, in Stuck in Love—“the first film I got to work with people my own age!” she says of costar Nat Wolff—as well as Aaron Eckhart’s daughter in the recently released thriller Erased. Liberato is currently filming with Luke Wilson and Jessica Alba in the film Dear Eleanor. “There is nothing like waking up in the morning, going to your job, and laughing all day with your cast mates.” 

ERIN MORIARTY   The wide-eyed Erin Moriarty is this year’s Sundance breakout. “The biggest challenge in filming this movie was, honestly, keeping a straight face,” says the 19-year-old native New Yorker of her scenes opposite Parks and Recreation funny guy Nick Offerman, for Jordan Vogt-Roberts’s recently released The Kings of Summer. Moriarty can also be seen in the postapocalyptic psychological thriller The Philosophers (out later this year) alongside James D’Arcy and peers Bonnie Wright and Jacob Artist. “Without giving too much away, Vivian is a really unlucky, ill-fated person,” Moriarty says of her character. Hoping to one day work with the likes of Terrence Malick and Danny Boyle—she claims Trainspotting as her favorite movie—Moriarty is nonetheless quite satisfied with her latest feat: playing Woody Harrelson’s daughter in the upcoming HBO crime series True Detective.

ZOE LEVIN   “I remember lying in the backseat, pinching myself to make sure I wasn’t dreaming,” says 20-year-old actress Zoe Levin of her time spent driving on set with the actors Steve Carell and Toni Collette, for The Way, Way Back, out in theaters in July. Hailing from Chicago, the blonde-tressed actress cut her teeth at the Lookingglass Theatre Company before filmmaker David Schwimmer cast her in his disturbing 2010 drama, Trust, featuring Liana Liberato (also pictured here). A whirlwind two years later, Levin can be seen in Gia Coppola’s Palo Alto, based on the James Franco short stories and starring him, Emma Roberts, and Val Kilmer. “It was so weird, because the day I got cast in the film I got an e-mail from Amazon with a book suggestion for Palo Alto: Stories,” she says. “Of course I immediately bought it and read it.”
