Ehe international (and deserved) success of Pan's Labyrinth, with the well-known Oscar nominations (of which he ended up taking three), has made the career of its young protagonist, Ivana Baquero, skyrocket in a meteoric way since the winner of the Goya for the revelation actress will star in The New Daughter, a mystery film in which she will have her first role in English.
The film tells the lurid story of a father who moves with his two children to a farm far from the city (what a novelty). There, his daughter, who will play Baquero, will begin to behave strangely. A suspicious mound in the surrounding fields appears to be the key to the girl's increasingly sinister behavior. The script, according to an information published by The Hollywood Reporter is the work of John Travis and is based on a short story by the famous horror novel writer John Connolly.
The young actress Spanish makes the leap thus to the film mecca, and I hope she does not follow in the footsteps of other child stars such as Macaulay Culkin, the boy from Solo en casa, and others who were so pigeonholed in the roles of "redicho child" than when Their voices change (in this case the children have it worse) and they start to grow hair, they do not get more roles no matter how much they want. It seems that lately there are exceptions to the many cases that occurred before, such as Dakota Fanning, who was the daughter of Tom Cruise in War of the Worlds or Sean Penn in I am Sam. It remains to be seen what can happen with other of these young talents, such as Haley Joel Osment who became known in The Sixth Sense and then has had some brilliant roles with others worthy of Macaulay himself, or Daniel Radcliffe, aka Harry Potter, who He won't be able to play the young wizard before long, unless JK Rowling begins to describe Harry with a two-day-old beard and trying to brush Hermione.
