Hollywood’s child actresses are growing up, as is evident by the triumphant red carpet reveal of Modern Family’s Sarah Hyland, Game of Thrones’ Sophie Turner, and Mad Men’s Kiernan Shipka at the 2016 SAG Awards.
Hyland, 25, has played the Dunphy clan’s eldest child, Haley, since 2009. Here’s a shot of her then, at age 18.
Turner, who has also been with GoT since its 2011 inception, was only 15 at the time. She’s now fast approaching her 20th birthday.
And perhaps most striking, Shipka began her reign as the leading daughter of Mad Men in 2007, at age eight. Now double that age, she celebrated her Sweet 16 in November.
As we watch them grow up in front of our eyes each season, it’s difficult to notice the striking differences. Admittedly, a part of us is missing these days.
For the sake of our collective sanity, we won’t get into Maisie Williams…we’ll just leave this here.
