Emmanuel Lewis is just as adorable as when he played the lead in 'Webster'

Emmanuel Lewis was 12 when he landed the part of  Webster in the sitcom with the same name that premiered in 1983, and he quickly became America's favorite screen child.

Lewis played the role of an orphaned six-year-old boy who is adopted by his NFL-pro godfather, portrayed by Alex Karras, and his new socialite wife, played by Susan Clark.

The series ended in 1987, and Lewi's career dwindled.

Fans were overjoyed to see a post on Instagram on the 1st of July 2018 by celebrity dancer/Choreographer Debbie Allan in which she shares a photo of herself and Lewis

The star has always been discreet and has kept his personal life out of the media, and so it is not known if he has a love interest, or has ever had a child.

Lewis keeps in shape through healthy eating and his love for the martial art: Tae Kwon Do. His passion for the martial art is one of the central motivations of his life, and he earned a black belt in the Art.

Lewis graduated from Clark Atlanta University with a theater arts degree in 1997. Lewis owns a limousine company and a car wash service.
