The young version of Theron's character is played by the talented Sterling Jerins. The name of the New York-born, 11-year-old actress may not ring a bell, but it's pretty likely you've seen her face before. Despite her young age, Jerins has managed to score roles in some major movies, and even a couple TV shows. Here are the places where you might have seen her already.
World War Z
Jerin's most prominent role so far was playing Constance Lane, the daughter of Brad Pitt's character, in this zombie blockbuster.
Another significant role in a horror flick, Jerins played the daughter of Patrick Wilson's and Vera Farmiga's characters, a role which sees her get attacked by a possessed doll. The movie was also inspired by a true story, leaving me to wonder how this kid sleeps at night.
Butterflies Of Bill Baker
Jerins had a small role in this independent film about a man who commits dangerous acts due to a night terror disorder. The actress certainly seems to have a pattern.
And So It Goes
Yet Jerins doesn't just do horror and thriller films. She also appeared in this Rob Reiner comedy, playing the surprise granddaughter of Michael Douglas's character.
Jerins is relegated to the background of this ensemble film about a man who learns that his estranged father is dying. Amy Adams and Terrance Howard make up part of the cast, continuing Jerins' streak of strong co-stars.
5 Flights Up
Speaking of powerhouse co-stars, Morgan Freeman and Diane Keaton are an old married couple confronted with moving out of the New York apartment they've shared for 40 years in this flick. Jerins shows up as a young girl who befriends Freeman's character.
This short-lived NBC crime drama featured Jerins in a recurring role. She appeared as Lily Bowers in five of the series' 11 episodes.
Jerin's first screen credit was on this USA drama. She appeared as Gina in one episode in 2011. It goes without saying that her character was welcomed.
This kid is everywhere, and her career is only getting better.
