5 Favorites #56: 5 Favorite Child Actors

Every week, we'll pose a new "five favorites" question. You just list your five favorites that fit in that category (preferably in preference order) and you're welcome to discuss and debate the selections and see just how much you do or do not have in common with others. If you want to take a look back at our past articles to comment or enjoy, here is a post set aside to track all of our articles.

We're still a few weeks away from my annual bout of Oscar Favorite lists (only because I can't fill twelve weeks worth of polls. So, we'll do a few more regular polls and shift to new territory. This week, we'll look at child actors (not necessarily child performances, which may be a later poll)

What are your 5 Favorite child actors?
