There are a lot of young and talented stars coming through in Hollywood right now and, while some of these stars will go on to have exciting and successful acting careers in Hollywood, there are also the unfortunate ones who do not quite make it. Going from being a child star into becoming a top grown up actor is never an easy transition to make, as people always remember you as that child star but it is a transition that needs to be made to become successful later in life.
One young and talented actor who will soon need to start thinking about going for those more challenging, grown up roles, is Modern Family star Rico Rodriguez, who plays the role of Manny Delgado in the hit television series. While Rico does still look young, so will be able to pull off the young roles for a while longer yet, he is turning 16 this year and it will only be a matter of time before he needs to make the step up.
Despite only being 15 years old, Rico Rodriguez has already had a very successful career to date, making guest appearances on shows such as Good Luck Charlie, Nip/Tuck and My Name is Earl, to name just a few. Meanwhile he has also appeared on the big screen in films like Epic Movie, Opposite Day and The Muppets. However, it is as Manny in Modern Family that he is best known, appearing in 111 episodes of the show to date.
There is no denying that Rico Rodriguez is a very talented young actor and he definitely has the potential to go on and become a big Hollywood star in the future. Watch this space.
