Dead or Alive: Emmanuel Lewis

Emmanuel Lewis is — STILL ALIVE. Wouldn’t that have been sad if that cute little guy had already died? He was born in 1971, and is best known for playing Webster in the television show of the same name. The show ran from 1983-1987 on ABC. The show was set in Chicago, and revolved around Webster, whose parents were killed in a car accident.

According to TV.com, After Webster, Lewis enrolled in Clark Atlanta University and earned his Bachelors of Arts degree in Theatre Arts. He also continued working in television throughout the ’90s, making guest appearances on various series including Family Matters, In the House, Moesha, Malcolm & Eddie and Good vs. Evil.

    1. Awesome!!! Within this past year, he was a guest on an episode of the TV Guidance Counselor podcast with Ken Reid, so he definitely is still alive. At the time that I posted this, several people were asking me if he was still alive. So I decided to write this. I should probably do some more.
