In the Youth Actor category.... last years winner Robbie Kay did not have a chance to defend his title due to the show writing him off, so the field is open. Newcomer David Mazouz "Gotham" jumped in and took the lead in the semi-final round, narrowly beating last years runner up Jared Gilmore "Once Upon A Time". Another newcomer to the category Isaac Hempstead Wright "Game Of Thrones" came in 3rd ahead of last years 3rd place finisher Chandler Riggs "The Walking Dead". This year 4 of last years finalists are in this eyars finals. As stated earlier, the defending champ is out due to not being on the show this year, Same goes for Rowan Longworth, while Shane Harper was ineligible due to his age.
In the Youth Actress category... last eyars winner Maisie Williams "Game Of Thrones" again looks like she will be a major contender. However, the semi-final vote saw last years double finalist Bex Taylor-Klaus "Arrow" take a strong stranglehold on things and will go into the finals as the probable favorite based on her nearly 2 to 1 vote ratio of last years winner in the runner up spot. Camren Bicondova "Gotham" like her male counterpart finished strong with a 3rd place spot ahead of last years 3rd place finalist Sophie Turner "Game Of Thrones" who finished 4th in the semi-finals this year. Like on the guys side, theres a couple missing from this year who were in last year. Molly Quinn "Castle" was ineligible for her age, Gage Golightly was both ineligible for her age and the fact her show ended, and finally Bex Taylor-Klaus "The Killing" will only be a finalist for 1 show this year as her role in the final season of the drama was not reprised.
The finals for these categeories will take place in January 2015 HERE.
