Ah, Emma, you certainly a young woman with good taste ... Except for your understandable infatuation with James McAvoy, I'd say you got it dead right, especially putting Ivana Baquero on top

I still do not get this ridiculous Ivana Baquero love (nor the love for Leo in Blood Diamond)...

But kudos on the Ryan Gosling, Leo (The Departed), Shareeka Epps and Danny Perea mentions.

Good list, but I would have put Maribel VerdĂș above Ivana Baquero.

@ Reel - yep, I must admit that my "liking" for Mr. McAvoy has certainly influenced his ranking... hehe.

@ DL - well, as I said, it's subjective, although I really was enchanted by Ivana, and I'm meant to be harsh with child actors.
