Justice Smith

Justice Smith was most notably the breakout star of The Get Down and has moved beyond the world of streaming with Jurassic World and Pokémon: Detective Pikachu. He always seems to balance a comedic effect with deep empathy and a disarming physicality in his work. With everything that he has accomplished in the last few years, Justice Smith is undeniably a star. And yet, he's just getting started.

Sivan Alyra Rose

Sivan Alyra Rose is no debutante beneficiary of Hollywood. She grew up right outside of Phoenix on the San Carlos Apache reservation, raised by her mother and grandmother. Unlike those bequest into the industry, Sivan was discovered at 16 years-old, modeling at the Santa Fe Indian Market. This comes as no surprise because Sivan is absolutely captivating. What's even more remarkable than her exceptional good looks is her unique aesthetic; a goth-glam extrinsic projection of the visionary within. Her unconventional upbringing impressed an affinity for abstract art and a passion for civil issues. In 2016, Sivan drew inspiration from Marley Mitchell, Andy Warhol and Jean-Michel Basquiat to exhibit "Hypnotize", her collection of skateboard art in support of the Phoenix Indian Center. A year later, she attended the Institute of American Indian Arts where she was cast as the lead in a short horror story called The Entrada. This was the inception of her artistic odyssey into film and television.

Grace Van Dien

The last few years have been big for Grace Van Dien—Greenhouse Academy on Netflix, White Famous on Showtime, as well as the coveted role of Sharon Tate on the Manson movie Charlie Says. Born and raised in Los Angeles, her road to Hollywood wasn't very far. Grace's roots run deep here, a progeny of renowned industry amalgamates. Yet, she stands amply on her own success in an increasingly omnipresent cinematic forum. She has more on her roster than the LA Dodgers, starring in a variety of movies and television shows from a relatively young age. As an actor, Grace finds that each role she takes on as somewhat of an education. She has an uncanny aptitude for capturing her characters, whether they are blithe or bittersweet. You can tell she doesn't take her work lightly. Her performances are profoundly striking, a rare quality for a young star on the rise.

Topher Grace

Topher Grace will probably never live his role as the wholesome Eric Forman on That 70’s Show down. But, the reality is that he doesn’t mind. The cast has become his family with an active group text, and along the way, he has carved out a nice niche for himself in Hollywood with production and writing credits, along with working along heavyweights such as Spike Lee. Topher Grace is the proud racist David Duke in Spike Lee’s Academy Award winning BlacKkKlansman and he quickly shows how mercurial racism can exist in society, while still being incredibly entertaining. Oh, he also has a pretty entertaining podcast with Anna Faris on the way. Eric Forman has grown up, but still pretty wholesome.

Rachel Brosnahan

Rachel Brosnahan has quietly built up a brilliant career. That was until one drunken and despondent night that ended in an impromptu stand-up performance at the Gaslight Café (as well a night in jail). She put her well-heeled foot down, delivered an effervescent yet risqué monologue and got everyone paying attention. This was the defining moment in Rachel’s portrayal of Miriam “Midge” Maisel. Her flawless vintage New York accent broached every syllable dead on the comedic beat. It’s shocking that The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel was her first comedic role and we’re left wondering, how did it take so long? In a way, she dared it all to happen. And then beat them to the punchline.

Avan Jogia

Today, Avan Jogia has extended his creative repertoire to include writing, singing and directing. He is also an activist and always speaks up for causes he deeply believes in—youth rights and equality rights. And this is most prominently portrayed through his recent role as the millennial stoner Ulysses in the sex-positive new series Now Apocalypse, where viewers can see the perspective of a queer, brown “sexual explorer” going through unapologetic “quests pursuing love, sex and fame”.
