15 Breakout Stars of Summer 2012
Diego Boneta, Josh Henderson, Lucy Griffiths and more
Previously Seen: "In Time," "Neighbours"
Expected Breakout Role: "Dark Shadows" (May 11)
Why: An up-and-comer who got the attention of casting directors and producers for her role on the Australian soap "Neighbours," Heathcote plays the dual role of Johnny Depp's long lost love Josette DuPres (reincarnated as Victoria Winters) in "Dark Shadows." Heathcote is an intriguing ingenue who passingly resembles Heather Graham and has the big, bright eyes of a Disney animated princess. Her next film? David Chase's feature debut, "Not Fade Away."
