Who Will Be the Next Big 'Tween Star?

Among some of her fans and their parents, Nickelodeon star Jamie Lynn Spears may have lost some of her status as a 'tween idol. But there are many other young actors, actresses and singers whose talent could soon make them household names.

Already a superstar, of course, is Miley Cyrus of Hannah Montana fame. Here, PEOPLE looks at the next group of tween stars who we'll likely be talking about in the years to come.

Emma Roberts, David Henrie and Alyson Stoner

  • Emma Roberts, 16. CREDENTIALS: The daughter of actor Eric Roberts (and niece of Julia), she appeared in the movie Blow when she was just 9, starred in Nancy Drew, and is also the lead in the Nickelodeon series Unfabulous. Asked about other young celebs' partying ways, she told PEOPLE this year: "It doesn't freak me out. I'm not the kind of person who would fall into that kind of stuff."

  • David Henrie, 18. CREDENTIALS: He has starred in the Disney Channel series That's So Raven and Wizards of Waverly Place.

  • Alyson Stoner, 15. CREDENTIALS: She starred in the movies Cheaper by the Dozen and Cheaper by the Dozen 2. Another That's So Raven vet, she also has a voice role in the upcoming animated series Phineas and Ferb and stars in Camp Rock.
