Additionally, Ricci starred opposite Johnny Depp in Tim Burton's Sleepy Hollow, for which she won the Blockbuster Entertainment Award.
Ricci's performance at age 7 in a school Christmas play caught the attention of a local theatre critic, who suggested to her parents that she consider an acting career. She made her professional acting debut one year later in Mermaids in the pivotal role of Cher's youngest daughter and Winona Ryder's sister. As a child actor, Ricci won over audiences and critics alike with her winning portrayal of the strangely adorable Wednesday Addams in The Addams Family. Her performance so delighted the film's creators and movie fans that Ricci was given an expanded role in the sequel, Addams Family Values. She went on to star in the surprise hit of the summer 1995 season Casper. For that Ricci received the prestigious NATO ShowEast Star of the Year Award and the Star of Tomorrow Award from the Motion Picture Booker's Club for her strong performances and the $100 million-plus box office successes of Addams Family and Casper.
