Success can take years. Ten is the case of Italian actress Simona Tabasco , 28 years old, who started acting as a teenager.
"I think everyone has their own vision and therefore their own path," Tabasco told Forbes.
The second season of the award-winning TV series The White Lotus was a broad cultural movement in which Tabasco finds her leading role as Lucia amidst the anthropomorphic currents of satire, class and privilege on the beautiful coast of Sicily.

Brit Shay Cole (23) has created the blueprint for a new generation of artists with unique roles in Donald Glover's award-winning TV series Atlanta and Small Axe by BAFTA nominee Steve McQueen. Cole's next roles were in Steven Soderbergh's series Full Circle and the Netflix film Beautiful Game alongside actor Bill Nye.
Behind the scenes, registrar Jordan Schwarzenberger (25) manages British YouTube creators like The Sideman through his management company Arcade Media, which he founded in 2021. Speaking of the founders, Rosine Tapponi , 23, launched the global streaming service Sasha Films with Films Southwest.

These sources are often samples of their lives – messages from fans, reports of lonely Covid 19 quarantines or moments of melancholy. Fred takes those infectious moments and turns them into passionate and visceral dance music, often collaborating with the likes of Beato Madonna, Skrillex and Four Tet.
Dodie (27) has a similar fascination. He has translated his YouTube fame into four independent EPs and one studio album. Now she's amassed a loyal following of fans who want to hear her sing about bisexuality, boundaries and alienation (see her Little Table performance here for more proof).
