Child Stars Photo Portfolio

The child stars who shaped Gen X are all grown up—and they're all here in our exclusive photo portfolio.

EMMANUEL LEWIS
Age: 36 \\ Best known as: Webster Long on Webster

So heavy-handed was eighties TV that prime time featured two sitcoms about pint-size black boys being raised in white households. But only Lewis’ character lent his name to the series. Now, nearly 20 years since the show’s end, Lewis divides his time between motivational speaking, running his music label, and graciously humoring fans who mistake him for Gary Coleman.

“It was crazy. These fans knocked the window out of a store I was shopping in—their big front window—chanting, ‘Bring us Webster!’”
