EARLY YEARS OF EMMANUEL LEWIS

Lewis was just 12 when the first season of "Webster" aired and his wisecrack character was a fan favorite till the sitcom ended when he was 18.

Almost immediately after the sitcom, Lewis went on to have a rather private life as he enrolled in the Clark Atlanta University in with a theater arts degree in 1997.

He took his time at the university and still looked around for acting gigs but apart from a few guest appearances his roles during the time were not very significant.

THE ACTOR'S DISTINCT HEIGHT

This scarcity of roles Lewis faced was partly because of the fact that he had reached his peak height of 4'3" and he did not seem to age very much.

Apart from his weight, Lewis pretty much looks the same as his "Webster' days. In fact, the actor claims to have grown only six inches since the age of twelve.

Apart from his roles on TV, Lewis also garnered some attention towards his seemingly unaging body in the past. Although, the actor insists that it isn't attributed to any debilitating medical condition.

LEWIS IN HIS PRIME

Lewis is one of the shortest people in the show business today despite the fact that his body has all the normal potentials for growth. Even so, he simply stopped growing at some point.

In his prime, Lewis was one of the biggest stars in Japan as well as in the US. In an interview with "PEOPLE" in 1994, Lewis claimed, "The only place I can go where I’m not mobbed is my house."
