CAST & CHARACTERS
One of the middle Gallagher children, Debbie is helpful, sensitive and has a good heart. She longs for familial stability, and was even willing to pretend a complete stranger with dementia was her grandmother. But now she's starting to grow up. She helps Fiona run a day care center in the house, and she's determined to get a room of her own at any cost.
Born in Manhattan, Emma Kenney realized her passion for performing at age four. Since then, she has appeared in numerous national commercials as well as voiceovers. In addition to acting Kenney also has enthusiasm for being behind the camera. Emma directed her first movie, THE NEW GIRL IN TOWN, which was honored as a finalist at the 2009 New Jersey International Film Festival, making Emma the youngest filmmaker ever to receive that honor. Due to her directorial success, NEW YORK magazine, Fox-5 TV in New York and NEW JERSEY MONTHLY magazine all featured stories on Kenney's accomplishment. When she is not acting or directing, she loves playing with her animals (one day, she hopes to open an animal shelter). Kenney is now splitting her time between New Jersey and Los Angeles.
