Nurturing an impressive body of work over the past two decades, Emily Osment’s career continues to evolve with exciting and challenging projects.
Osment stars in the upcoming Netflix comedy series “Pretty Smart,” about a snooty, self-proclaimed intellectual forced to move in with her carefree sister and her group of millennial friends. She also lends her voice to the upcoming Netflix animated series “DeadEndia,” based on the horror-comedy graphic novels. The show follows a group of kids as they battle supernatural forces during their summer jobs at a haunted house theme park. Osment plays a sardonic thousand-year-old demon who serves as their guide. She recently starred in the FOX drama series “Almost Family.” Based on the Australian series, the show centers on an only child who discovers her father is forced to reveal that over the course of his pioneering career as a fertility doctor, he used his own sperm to conceive dozens of children.
Osment starred on the award-winning Chuck Lorre Netflix series “The Kominsky Method” alongside Michael Douglas and Alan Arkin. Written by Lorre, “The Kominsky Method” centers on Sandy Kominsky (Douglas), an actor who years ago had a brief fling with success and is now a revered Hollywood acting coach. Osment led the Freeform comedy sereis “Young & Hungry” for five seasons as Gabi Diamond, a personal chef to a wealthy tech entrepreneur. She had a memorable arc in the Chuck Lorre CBS sitcom “Mom” playing Jodi, a street wise young drug addict who Christy (Anna Faris) and Bonnie (Allison Janney) try to help get sober. Another notable role was playing Lilly Truscott on the Disney Channel original series “Hannah Montana.” Before ending its remarkable 100 episode run, the show's success was captured on the big screen with Hannah Montana, The Movie.
Osment is also a singer/songwriter and releases new music under the moniker Bluebiird. As a teen she wrote and released two solo albums “All The Right Wrongs” and “Fight or Flight” and toured worldwide in 2010 at the age of 18.
Osment received a Canadian Screen Award and a Prism Award for her performance in the ABC Family original movie “Cyberbully,” which revolved around a bullied teen who attempts suicide during her junior year of high school. The movie is now shown in high schools across the country to better help educate teenagers on the dangers of cyber bullying.
