Wallis a natural actress, but is 9 too young? - Article Photos 5/5

FILE - This publicity photo released by Fox Searchlight Pictures shows Quvenzhane Wallis portraying Hushpuppy in a scene from the film,"Beasts of the Southern Wild." By all accounts, the young star, Wallis, is an actress of talent, poise and maturity well beyond her years. She was 6 when she played the part of Hushpuppy, and at only 9, she is the youngest-ever best actress nominee at the Academy Awards. (AP Photo/Fox Searchlight Pictures, Mary Cybulski, File)
