Thirteen-year-old actress Sophie Nélisse had a big decision to make before auditioning for The Book Thief: should she focus on acting or continue to pursue her dream of becoming an Olympic gymnast? Well, she decided, she got the part, and now the rest is history. Sophie's already getting award-season buzz for her role as a book-loving orphan in The Book Thief, which opens nationwide Nov. 15.
