Emily Jordan Osment was born in Los Angeles on March 10th, 1992. She is the younger sister of The Sixth Sense star, Haley Joel Osment. Her father is also an actor of some renown. Following in their footsteps, Emily started her acting career performing in several commercials, including a radio spot with Dick Van Dyke, before making her film debut in "The Secret Life of Girls." The same year she landed a role in the Hallmark film, "Sarah, Plain and Tall: Winter's End," as the daughter of Glenn Close and Christopher Walken. That role led to a nomination for Best Young Actor.
After that Emily played several smaller roles for television, which include, "3rd Rock from the Sun," "Touched by an Angel," and "Friends." During this time she also did voice acting alongside her brother and John Cleese, Catherine O'Hara, and Harry Shearer in the short animated-film, "Edwurd Fudwupper Fibbed Big."
Finally, Emily landed the much sought after role of Gerti Giggles in, "Spy Kids 2: Island of Lost Dreams." Writer/Director Robert Rodriguez was so impressed by her audition that he made the role longer without even knowing that she was the sister of Haley Joel Osment. She then appeared in the sequel, "Spy Kids 3-D: Game Over."
She appeared as a regular on the hit Disney Channel show, "Hannah Montana," in which she played the hyperactive, Lily Truscott, alongside co-stars Miley Cyrus and Mitchell Musso.

"It's a long way away, but I wanna do this till I die." (on acting)
I'm not so great at keeping secrets, maybe that's why no one ever tells me things. [on keeping secrets]
I'm trying to follow in my brother's footsteps, because I know he's really talented. I'm just trying to be like him I think. [on her brother Haley Joel Osment]
My brother gives me lots of tips. He tells me, 'Look them in the eye! Don't daydream!' It really helps me a lot. [on the help her brother gives her]
Seriously, I did not want to see The Sixth Sense. I knew I would have nightmares. And my parents agreed with me, too. I'm just too young. I haven't seen it yet. I still think it's scary. I don't like scary movies. [on her brother's hit movie]
I love Audrey Hepburn. I thought she was very classy. I like Breakfast at Tiffany's and a lot of her movies. [on her favorite actress.]
I'm a soccer fanatic, so I'm very competitive. I'm always ready to play, and I'm always asking, 'Why isn't everyone ready to play?'
Disney Channel is celebrities coated in sugar. Everything is really happy; everything is really bright.
I don't get embarrassed easily, and I do silly things all the time!
I constantly embarrass myself whenever I play Rock Band at my friend's house and get way too into it. The inner rocker girl comes out in me way too easily.-
