David Kross

<b>Best Supporting Actor for “The Reader”</b><br>
<br>
In “The Reader,” Kross plays 15-year-old Michael, a high school student who falls in love with an older woman (Kate Winslet) with a mysterious past that he only learns the full extent about years later as an adult (when Ralph Fiennes assumes Kross’ character). When one considers that scenes of Michael as a boy are far more numerous and showy than scenes of him as a adult in the novel, it isn’t hard to believe early reports that indicate Kross gives the film’s most impressive male performance.<br>

<b>Age on Nomination Day:</b> 18<br>
<br>
<b>Did You Know?</b> Director Stephen Daldry was so determined to have Kross play the part that he delayed the start of production until the actor turned 18 and could legally participate in some of the film’s more risqué scenes with Winslet.
