Looking back to the earlier stages of our lives, we would see the fresh faces of child stars like Amanda Bynes, Lindsey Lohan, and of course, Miley Cyrus (aka Hannah Montana). If we were to predict what their futures would look like, our childhood would be forever changed. Many famous child actors turn to different ways of expressing who they really are. They don’t want to be known as Hannah Montana, or Amanda from the Amanda show. They want to reinvent the world’s perception of who they were, to who they are. Sometimes the art of expression may push the boundaries too far, and create a persona that does not express their true morals or personality. The world of child stars is a much different world than what we can see from the outside… but what really solidifies the transition between one-hit wonder and A-lister? That is a question that ultimately lies in the eyes of the beholder.
