Emily Os­ment shot to fame as Han­nah Mon­tana’s side­kick best friend in Dis­ney tween com­edy Han­nah Mon­tana (20062011). That was a step­ping stone on to big­ger and bet­ter things, like a lead role in thriller movie Cy­ber­bully (2011) and as chef-turned-food blog­ger main char­ac­ter Gabi in fun sit­com Young & Hun­gry (2014-cur­rent).

If her name sounds fa­mil­iar, that’s 1

be­cause her brother is 28-year-old ac­tor Ha­ley Joel Os­ment, who fa­mously played dead-peo­ple-see­ing Cole Sear in para­nor­mal movie The Sixth Sense (1999). Her mom Theresa is a teacher and her dad Eu­gene is an ac­tor.

The 24-year-old started her ca­reer 2

in a TV ad for Florists’ Transworld De­liv­ery in 1998. She was cast in 1999 com­edy film The Se­cret Life Of Girls along­side Linda Hamil­ton (Sarah Con­nor in sci-fi film The Ter­mi­na­tor, 1984).

She made a trade-off with her 3

Han­nah Mon­tana co-star Mi­ley Cyrus – Emily taught Mi­ley to knit and Mi­ley taught her to play gui­tar.

Mi­ley also got Emily a guest spot 4

singing on her dad Billy Ray Cyrus’s 2007 song You’ve Got A Friend. Emily then re­leased an EP en­ti­tled All The Right Wrongs in 2009 and full al­bum Fight Or Flight in Oc­to­ber 2010.

Her favourite work mem­ory? Easy 5

– Emily dressed up as Lit­tle Red Rid­ing Hood in a 2001 Hal­loween episode of hit sit­com Friends (1994-2004).

As for her act­ing in­spi­ra­tion, she 6

says that “I re­mem­ber when I saw Boo­gie Nights for the first time, in 1997. Ju­lianne Moore is like a chameleon in ev­ery scene [of this os­car-nom­i­nated role]. I re­mem­ber be­ing so in­spired by how real she was and how brave she was to do a role like that”.
