Kathryn Newton is one to watch. This is meant in the most literal way. Her acting back catalogue reads like a page of a handbook on the most essential viewings this year.

The rising star was in three of the most award-nominated dramas of 2017: Big Little Lies, Lady Bird and Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.

The former cleaned up at the Emmys. The latter two are nominated for 12 Oscars in total. Three Billboards won big at the Golden Globes, as well as at the BAFTAs, where it snatched 5 awards of its 9 nominations.

To say it's been a great year for Kathryn would be an understatement.

And she achieved it all before turning 21!

Here's everything we know about the starlet.

How old is Kathryn Newton?

Kathryn is 21 years old.

Her birthday is 8th February 1997 (making her an Aquarius) and she was born to Robin and David Newton.

Who does she play in Supernatural?

She plays Claire Novak, daughter of Jimmy Novak. She has been in three seasons so far and became a lead character in the current 13th season - clearly not an unlucky number for Kathryn.

Who is Kathryn's character in Big Little Lies?

She memorably plays Abigail Carlson, the rebellious teenage daughter of Madeline Martha Mackenzie, who is acted by Reese Witherspoon.

What other movies and TV shows has she been in?

As well as Three Billboards, Lady Bird, and Big Little Lies, Kathryn features in the little-known but critically acclaimed Halt and Catch Fire plus this Christmas's BBC adaptation of Little Women.

Paranormal Activity 4 was her initial starring role that caught Hollywood's attention.

Soon-to-come will be Blockers, Ben Is Back, and Detective Pikachu alongside Ryan ReynoldsandSuki Waterhouse.

She is also lined up to return to the small screen for new seasons of Supernatural and Big Little Lies. We cannot wait.

What else is Kathryn known for?

Kathryn is a competitive golfer and almost entered the 2012 U.S. Women's Open, but had to pull out of the qualifier when she landed Paranormal Activity 4.

She and the sport are borderline inseparable, to the point that she brings her golf kit along with her when filming!

She told Golf Digest: "When I'm working on location, I always take my clubs."

She has been playing golf with her father since she was tiny, in her own words, "almost before I could walk."
