popcorn n roses

popcorn n roses has released their top rising stars of 2009. the list includes: kristen stewart, michael welch, ashely greene, and taylor lautner!

see the descriptions after the jump...


It was only a matter of time, and we knew it. My #1 female rising star this year has been on our radar for about five years now, with great performances in the TV movie Speak and the PNR favorite Fierce People. But when she signed on to play Bella Swan in The Twilight Saga, she had to know that her life was about to change forever. Now, her star is going supernova, with roles in the hit comedy Adventureland, the upcoming biopic The Runaways, where she plays rocker Joan Jett, and of course the next two films in the Twilight series, New Moon and Eclipse. Now that's she's really on EVERYBODY'S radar, there's no holding her back...


Given his extensive resume and his track record, I think Welch is about to explode. He's been around since the age of 10, when he co-starred in Star Trek: Insurrection, a role I'm completely embarrassed to say I didn't even realize was him until last week (duh!). But this year's #1 male rising star has everything going for him and should break wide open in the next year or so. Best known for his role as funny and friendly high school jock Mike Newton in The Twilight Saga, Michael is also around in a number of indie films, including the much troubled and yet to be seen film All The Boys Love Mandy Lane, the LA Film Festival hit Remember The Daze, Sundance favorite An American Crime, SXSW monster hit My Suicide, and in two ohter forthcoming films, Lost Dream and Unrequited. He's not only one of the best young actors around, he's also one of the busiest...


As Alice Cullen, the beautiful vampire with the clairvoyant visions in The Twilight Saga, Ashley launched herself into the hearts and minds of fans of the book series around the world. Now she's poised to show off what she can really do in diverse roles in the upcoming films Skateland, Summer, and Warrior, and then will return to Forks as Alice in The Twilight Saga's second installment New Moon. We think it's only a matter of time before she is really a household name...


Taylor got his first big break as Shark Boy in the film The Adventures of Shark Boy and Lava Girl a few years ago. But like everyone else associated with The Twilight Saga, Taylor's star is brighter than ever. As Jacob Black, the werewolf with the crush on Bella Swan, Taylor is really turning heads, and his role is much bigger in the next installment, New Moon. He also had a featured role as Christian Slater's son in the short lived TV series My Own Worst Enemy, which is now out on DVD.
