It’s not likely that you know the name Bella Heathcote yet, which means it’s no small feat that she’s already captured the attention of the likes of Tim Burton and Johnny Depp. For this reason, we’re expecting even bigger things from this Australian actress, and are thus naming her this week’s “One to Watch.”
Isabella “Bella” Heathcote was once best-known for her role as Amanda Fowler on the Australian soap opera Neighbors, which aired in 2009. .

It was the next year, however, that Bella was put on the map as the winner of the Heath Ledger Scholarship in 2010. The scholarship is presented by an organization called Australians In Film, for which Heath Ledger served as an ambassador. .

Last year, she was tapped to play Victoria Winters in the Tim Burton remake of the kitschy 1960’s soap opera Dark Shadows. We can’t wait to see this film version of the cult favorite TV show, especially since it’s in the hands of Tim and Johnny Depp, who were huge fans of the original series! .
Bella has also been cast in Not Fade Away, a film starring the likes of James Gandolfini and Brad Garrett, which is due out later this year. You will also be able to see her later this year in the Brad Pitt starrer Killing Them Softly. .
Bella is undoubtedly beautiful, and though we have yet to really test her acting chops, we’re convinced that if she’s good enough for Tim Burton and Brad Pitt, then she’s good enough to
expect superstardom from moving forward. .
