Biography: Soleil Moon Frye (born August 6, 1976) is an American actress and director. She was born to Virgil Frye and Sondra Peluce. She has the honor of being one of the youngest directors in Hollywood history, directing Wild Horses while still in her teens.
Frye first found popularity at age 8, when she starred as Punky Brewster, the title character of a television sitcom. The show aired on NBC and in syndication for many years during the 1980s. Later billed a child star, Soleil soon was viewed by the public eye less for her accomplishments in television and film and more for spectacular tabloid headlines.
During her teenaged years, stories surrounded a romance with Edward Furlong, and, more notably, a well-publicized breast reduction surgery. At 15, Soleil went "under the knife" to reduce back pain caused by growing abnormally large breasts for her age (Frye participated in a cover story for People Magazine discussing her health problems caused by the condition). After the true reason for the surgery was publicized many rumors died away.
During her late teens and early adult years, Frye made appearances in several low-budget and independent films. She began to acquire a reputation for being very difficult to work with. In particular, on the set of the film The Saint Tammany Miracle, Frye purportedly showed up late on multiple occasions, got into arguments with other actors, and at one point came in to work with a hangover.
Frye appeared in Sabrina the Teenage Witch as the coarse but sweet Roxy for several years. The show starred Melissa Joan Hart, who had auditioned for the part of Punky Brewster years before. Frye once auditioned for the series Charmed, a drama about a trio of witch sisters.
In 2001, she debuted on the Disney Channel show The Proud Family as a voice talent.
Frye married Jason Goldberg, a television producer and actor, in October 25, 1998 and is expecting her first child in August, 2005.
