Jacob Tremblay, Child Actor
The Canadian child actor Jacob Tremblay delivers performance of such naturalness and transparency that we forget he’s a kid. His work made us weep in two current movies, “Wonder,” in which he plays a boy with a birth defect (Mom: Julia Roberts), and the extraordinary and moving “The Book of Henry” (Mom: Naomi Watts), in which he plays the sweet younger brother of a doomed genius, played beautifully by another youngster, Jaeden Lieberher. We anticipate greatness from these blossoming talents. Tremblay is extravagantly talented. Let’s see how he handles the blessing-curse.
