Natalie Wood was an American actress who established a reputation for herself as an actor of substance. A three time Academy Award nominee and a winner of two Golden Globe Awards, Wood’s magnificent acting since early helped her become a successful Hollywood star eventually. Just a few weeks before her fifth birthday, Wood made her film debut as a character actress in the 1943 film ‘Happy Land’. Some of her successful films as a child actress include ‘Tomorrow is Forever’, ‘Miracle on the 34th Street’, ‘The Star’ and so on.
Before hitting teenage, Wood was bestowed with the ‘Child Star of the Year’ award. From being the most exciting juvenile motion picture child star to an ingénue teen actor, the transition was breezy for Wood. In 1955, Wood hit the magnum opus of her career with ‘Rebel Without A Cause’. Often recalled as her best role ever, it earned her an Academy nomination. A string of successful films continued, including ‘The Searchers’, ‘Splendour in the Grass’, ‘Gypsy’, ‘Marjorie Morningstar’, ‘From Here to Eternity’, and so on.
