Helena Zengel on the list of promising actors



The twelve-year-old German actress Helena Zengel (“Systemsprenger”) made it onto the annual “Actors to Watch” list of the US trade journal “Variety”.

“Variety” refers to Zengel’s appearance in “Systemsprenger” and her upcoming US film debut with Tom Hanks in the western “News from the World”. Hanks plays a message messenger in 1870 who meets ten-year-old Johanna (Zengel), who was raised by an indigenous people.

Among the ten chosen is the Bulgarian actress Maria Bakalova (24), who plays Sacha Baron Cohen’s daughter in the “Borat” sequel, the Irish Paul Mescal (24, “Normal People”) and the US Cast Tiffany Boone (33, “Hunters”), Jayme Lawson (19, “Farewell Amor”) and Tom Pelphrey (38, “Ozark”).

The group will be presented in a “Variety” issue in mid-December. The trade journal has been directing attention to promising actors since 1998, who later became popular. These include Brie Larson, Lupita Nyong’o, Octavia Spencer, Mahershala Ali and Timothée Chalamet.
