Like the rest of us, the talents on this year’s Young Hollywood list have had their lives disrupted by the coronavirus: Productions were halted and tours canceled. But these artists, who include actors, musicians and digital stars, have continued to flourish during the pandemic-forced shutdown of the entertainment industry, flexing new creative muscles or simply taking the opportunity to catch up with friends and loved ones. This report casts a spotlight on their work before and during the pandemic, and looks ahead to when Hollywood fully emerges from the global health crisis.
Instead of our annual Power of Young Hollywood party, Variety is presenting a one-hour program that will premiere on Facebook on Thursday, Aug. 6 at 6 p.m. PT/9 p.m. ET. It will feature talent featured in our Power of Young Hollywood issue and benefit Rock the Vote.
