Former child star Soleil Moon Frye became a Hollywood phenomenon through the
signature role of Punky Brewster in the sitcom “Punky Brewster” (1984-1988) and
the animated series “It’s Punky Brewster” (1985-1989). Gaining overnight
success, the young actress later took home two Young Artist Awards. She has had
some stumbling blocks in her career with the low-cost projects Mind Games (1996,
played Becky Hanson) and the TV drama The Secret (1997), as well as viewers’
approval for her roles in such films as the comedy drama The Girls’ Room (2000,
as Casey) and the animated series “The Proud Family” (2001-2005, voiced Zoey).

Outside the spotlight, the 35th celebrity on VH1’s “100 Greatest Kid Stars” list
in 2005, Frye was once a Senior Vice President and an owner of 33% of
Webstation.Com, but the company went out of business in August 2000. She
recently launched her own fashion line called Petite Moon and taught several
acting classes. In 1992, she underwent a highly publicized breast reduction
surgery to ease the back pain caused by her breast size. As for her romantic
life, Frye, who in the early 1990s was connected to actor Edward Furlong (born
on August 2, 1977), is now the wife of Jason Goldberg and the mother of a
daughter.

Career:

Soleil Moon Frye’s gateway to the luminous world of acting was her involvement
in the TV drama Missing Children: A Mother’s Story (1982). Following the
supporting part of Linda Fray in the Emmy-nominated TV movie Who Will Love My
Children (1983), Frye’s name was noticed with the titular character of an
abandoned girl who is adopted by an old man, in the successful family sitcom
“Punky Brewster” (1984-1988). Thanks to the signature role, she made a name for
herself as a talented child star and won a Young Artist for Best Young Actress
in a Television Comedy Series. The lucrative show was further ensued by the
production of the animated version, “It’s Punky Brewster” (1985-1989), where
Frye’s voiceover work for her titular character was rewarded with a Young Artist
for Best Young Actress in an Animation Voiceover Role.

Amid her involvement in the series, the young actress also had the role of
spoiled Minerva in Disney’s TV film You Ruined My Life (1987) and starred as
Tyler McKay in the comedy “Cadets” (1988). After guest starring in “The Wonder
Years” (1990) and “Saved by the Bell” (1992), Frye made her silver screen debut
in the thriller The Liars’ Club (1993), costarring with Will Wheaton and Brian
Krause. She then picked up roles in the low budget TV family comedy Summertime
Switch (1994, as Peggy the head cheerleader), the thriller Twisted Love (1995),
Mind Games (1996, played Becky Hanson) and Noel Nosseck’s drama The Secret
(1997, TV).

The next year, Frye took a crack at screenwriting and directing with Wild Horses
(1998), a film she co-directed and co-wrote with half brother Meeno Peluce. The
actress then guest starred on the international hit sitcom “Friends” (1999),
appearing as the girlfriend of Matt LeBlanc’s character. She was then seen as
college student Casey in the comedy drama The Girls’ Room (2000) before
returning to sitcoms with a recurring role of Roxie King in “Sabrina, the
Teenage Witch” (2000-2003).

While working on the series, the performer received the supporting role of
Alissa in the teen drama Alex in Wonder (2001) and provided her voice for Zoey,
a character in the animated series “The Proud Family” (2001-2005), which she
reprised on the TV film version of The Proud Family (2005). Still doing
voiceover work, in 2005, she lent her voice for Jade in the series “Bratz,”
along with teen actors Kaley Cuoco, Lacey Chabert and Greg Ellis.
