Young actresses to watch: Brianna Hildebrand in Trinkets, Alexa Demie in Euphoria, and Florence Pugh in Midsommar
Previous credits: You might recognise Brianna as that fiesty punk with a shaven head who stole the show in 2016's Deadpool. The 22-year-old went on to star in the television adaptation of The Exorcist (2017) before returning to the role that made her famous in Deadpool 2 in 2018. She is now showing off more of her acting chops in Netflix's Trinkets, a coming-of-age series that revolves around three teenage serial shoplifters. Brianna plays a young lesbian, and yet, her performance is refreshingly serene in sharp contrast to her other roles.
Upcoming project: In 2020, she stars alongside Lana Condor as unlikely BFFs in Girls Night.
Trivia: Ryan Reynolds was her childhood crush. His name is still on her bedroom wall.
Previous credits: Alexa Demie is a pretty new face on the block. The 25-year-old had a string of cameos in Ray Donovan (2016), but her big break arrived in Jonah Hill's directorial debut Mid90s last year. She is now getting some fab column inches, not only for her turn as a bad girl cheerleader in HBO's sex and drug-fuelled original Euphoria, but her show-stopping red carpet appearance for the show's premiere where she wore a body-hugging snake-print dress with a cutout back that exposed a bedazzled thong.
Upcoming projects: She is appearing next alongside Lucas Hedges in Waves, where "two young couples navigate through the emotional minefield of growing up and falling in love", according to IMDB.
Trivia: She is an aspiring singer-songwriter. She released her first single, "Girl Like Me" in 2016.
Previous credits: Florence Pugh might be the most accomplished on this round-up with previous roles in films such as The Falling (2014) with Maisie Williams and The Commuter (2018), but it's her soon-to-be-released folk-horror film Midsommar that's making the headlines. The 23-year-old English actress plays Dani, who joins her boyfriend and his gang of friends on a trip to a midsummer festival in a remote Swedish village. The dreamy countryside landscape and hippy commune soon dissolve into a nightmare of pagan rituals in broad daylight.
Upcoming projects: Florence has not one, but two highly anticipated films on the way: Little Women (2019) is a coming-of-age drama that featues an all-star cast including Meryl Streep, Timothee Chalamet and Emma Watson, while Black Widow (2020) will probably see her acting as a younger version of the Marvel superhero famously played by Scarlett Johansson.
Trivia: She went to the same school as Game of Thrones' Emilia Clarke and Kit Harrington.
