Emma currently stars as Debbie Gallagher on Showtime's hit series "Shameless". She was last on the silver screen, as a voice in the hit Disney movie, Epic. Born in Manhattan, Emma Kenney realized her passion for performing at age four and has worked in front of the camera, ever since. 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. When she is not acting or directing, she loves photography and playing with her animals (one day, she hopes to open an animal shelter of her own).
"I am so proud to be a part of ‘Best Friends'. It is such an important organization with so many committed and inspirational people who work together to save all the animals!" Emma Kenney.
