Emily Hope Schulman (born August 17, 1977) is a former child actress and commercial agent, and current acting instructor. She is perhaps best remembered as next-door neighbor Harriet Brindle on the sitcom Small Wonder, which ran from 1985 to 1989.

Early life[edit]

Schulman began appearing before the cameras at the age of two in spots that included McDonald's, Mattel, Quaker Oats, Skippy Peanut Butter, Mattel Toys, Kentucky Fried Chicken, and Pepsi.[citation needed]


In 1984, at the age of six, Schulman was cast in the role of the spunky redhead Harriet on the pilot for Small Wonder. The show ran for four seasons and 96 episodes. Schulman's childhood work, though often later lampooned for its perceived kitsch, received recognition by her contemporaries: she twice won Young Artist Awards and was nominated for the peer honor three other times. Additional television credits include Finders Keepers, Hotel, Mr. Belvedere, ALF and The Wonder Years. Schulman also starred in the 1989 films Troop Beverly Hills and Caddie Woodlawn. Her last acting appearance was on the television series Christy (with her Troop Beverly Hills co-star Kellie Martin), in which she played Ruby Mae Morrison.

At 17, Schulman began a career shift away from the cameras. In 2008, after 13 years as the head of Acme Talent & Literary's Commercial Division, Schulman relocated her department to its current home at Talentworks.[1] After a coastal relocation, Schulman now teaches acting along and near the Connecticut shoreline.[2]

Schulman married Derek Webster[disambiguation needed] in 2002. They have four children: Lasarina, Maev, Colm and Lochlan.[3]
