Emma Kenney stars as Harris Conner-Healy, the daughter of Darlene Conner (Sara Gilbert), on ABC's hit comedy "The Conners." She also stars as the precocious Debbie Gallagher on Showtime's hit series "Shameless."
Born in Manhattan, Kenney realized her passion for performing at age 4. Since then, she has appeared in numerous national commercials as well as voiceovers, including the hit animated film "Epic." In addition to acting, Kenney also has an enthusiasm for being behind the camera. She directed her first movie, "The New Girl in Town," which was honored as a finalist at the 2009 New Jersey International Film Festival, making her 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 featured stories on Kenney's accomplishment. Her projects include a starring role in the film "Robert the Bruce," which continues the story where the Oscar®-winning film "Braveheart" left off.
When she is not acting or directing, Kenney loves playing with her animals, hoping to one day open an animal shelter. She currently resides in Los Angeles.
