"Savannah Liles is Amazing!"
"Savannah Liles is such a pleasure to work with. She is truly gifted, and razor smart. She works harder than most adult actors I know, and I think she is a rising star. Thank you so much for allowing Savannah to join the TIDELANDS cast!"
for a young child like Liles to bring a character like Ellie to life, and to give such an intense, laser focused performance, is a marvel.
Liles gives a phenomenal showing as Ellie. Her disconcerting demeanor and frostiness are part of a powerhouse performance that draws parallels with Pierce Gagnon in Looper six years ago
A game changing performance for Savannah Liles, who packs a major punch for a pint sized actress
A standout performance
cold, calculating and absolutely convincing as a girl with an IQ off the charts
Exceptional. A very promising performance
She hits her emotional marks perfectly, she is stunningly tied in with her performance. The acting here is flawless
Savannah Liles is an enormous talent. She plays Ellie like Hannibal Lector meets Annie. Liles is more than up for the task of delivering an on screen villain that would make Freddy Krueger soak his pampers
This kid could scare grown ups. she could be hannibal lecters kid. she could be a psychologist and you would believe it. she brings her A-game. She is serious and very much in character
Killer children are scary. BRILLIANT sociopathic children are absolutely terrifying! Mastering that persona is one implausible feat and that is what instantly grabs you by the throat, choking you immediately when watching Prodigy. To conquer that role as a simple 9 year old is astonishing. Nothing short of adoration for this brilliance!
Liles displays both a reluctant vulnerability and an icy indifference that speaks volumes about the future of her career
For Liles, not only does she convey her role, she becomes her role. Her lines are spoken with such eloquence it feels poetic
Liles is mighty impressive. She's not possessed and spewing pea soup like Linda Blair in The Exorcist. She delivers a subdued and restrained performance that is far beyond her years. She delivers her lines with a cutting sarcasm and condescending tone that gives the viewers insight into the character without giving too much away
As the story’s protagonist/antagonist, Liles is nothing short of remarkable
Liles’ performance reminded me of Edward Norton's career making role in Primal Fear.
Ms. Liles is one to look out for
Fiery and highly competent. Liles is a force to be reckoned with. A clear comparison to a young Drew Barrymore, Liles would fit right in with a Stranger Things type cast if they skewed a few years younger
Liles is a remarkable find. She’s a natural!
Savannah Liles is a young actress to keep an eye on
She manages to deliver her lines without tripping up or sounding unnatural, which is a step up from many young actors in similar roles. We will doubtless see more of her in years to come
The acting is stellar. Savannah liles is compelling; equal amounts creepy, emotionless with just enough nuance to see the hints of her true emotions behind the facade. She is one to watch out for
Liles plays the role of an incredibly intelligent, manipulative and dangerous 9 year old with so much conviction and authority, cementing her performance as one of the more surprising and chilling of its kind
Savannah Liles is a superstar. She is terrifying. I mean that as a compliment
Savannah plays the beyond genius Ellie with superb confidence. This is an actress to watch….she could well be our next Dakota Fanning
Prodigy is the perfect vehicle to shuttle Savannah Liles into the limelight. It’s as if she actually suffered through her character’s harsh memories. She really is capable of anything
