20 Nerdy Child Stars Who Grew Up Too Fast

Growing up is a part of life. The physical and mental maturation, better known is puberty, is something that everyone goes through. However, not everyone goes through such an awkward stage of life with cameras and spotlights. Child actors and actresses, while reveling in early success, have the misfortune of growing up with all eyes on them at all times.

While the pressure can get overwhelming, it’s amazing to see how some of these youngsters have grown into fine young men and women, even with the everyday critique of media and press. One day were watching them in a Disney show and before you know it, they’re making movies with top notch producers. The years fly by and some of these child stars change so much that they’re barely recognizable. Which on of these 20 actors and actresses surprised you the most?

1. Alexa Vega: I remember her little spy-kid self running around and kicking butt with her brother. She’s come a long way, now married and expecting her first child. Ahh, they grow up so fast.
