Emma Kenney stars in "Shameless" on Showtime as Debbie. One of the middle Gallagher children, Debbie is helpful and has a good heart. She's willing to bring her baby brother to school for show and tell when there's no one else to watch him, put a pillow under her father's head when he's passed out on the floor, and collect money for charity year round—only some of which she keeps for herself.

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 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 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.
