Soleil Moon Frye: 10 Things You May Not Know About Punky Brewster (Photos)

Soliel Moon Frye is much more than Punky Brewster!

Soleil Moon Frye is one former child actor who most people will never forget! Her iconic role as the lovable and fun Punky Brewster will go down in history as one of the greatest TV personalities ever. I loved watching Punky growing up and still get a kick out of the reruns whenever they happen to be on.

She may be most well known for playing Punky Brewster, but Soleil Moon Frye is also an accomplished entrepreneur and mother. She has always been a favorite celeb mom of mine, and now that her book, “Happy Chaos: From Punky to Parenting and My Perfectly Imperfect Adventures in Between,” has released, she’s back in the spotlight again.

People who don’t remember Soleil as Punky Brewster will definitely remember her role as Roxie King in Sabrina the Teenage Witch. Honestly, she has barely aged since she starred on that show. Soleil is 35, but still looks like she’s in her twenties!

Other than her TV roles, here are 10 things you may not know about Soleil Moon Frye…the girl Punky Brewster grew up to be!
