Six of our favourite kids on TV

Six of our favourite kids on TV

Debbie from Shameless: Debbie, played by Emma Kenny is the kindhearted soft -spoken Gallagher. We don’t know whether to weep when Debbie cries at the loss of the borrowed Aunt Ginger or to applaud when she stoically decides that she’d rather deal with a drunk father than a father who relapses. Her vulnerability, wisdom and good sense makes us love her more when we see her among her hardscrabble, tough siblings.

Arya Stark from Game of Thrones: She’s a tough one. She doesn’t simper in fear, she doesn’t moan in despair and she recites the names of her enemies before she goes to bed so she’ll remember that she has to kill them.  Played by  Maisie Williams, she is alert and smart and she never shows fear.

Manny from Modern Family: Manny is an adult in an kid’s body. He drinks coffee, writes love poetry, had a turtle called Shel Silverstein and usually has some great advice for everyone. He’s also a great salsa dancer. Played by Rico Rodriguez, as Gloria says, “Manny is old soul.”

Hope from Raising Hope: Very few toddlers, since the Olsen twins on Full House have had cuteness combined with the perfect expressions, whether they are entirely indifferent like baby Lily on Modern Family or just a “lump” like Emma on Friends. Played by Rylie and Baylie Cregut, Hope seems to almost enjoy her crazy but sweet family’s antics.

Jake from Two and a half men: When this show began a few hundred years ago, Jake, like Charlie Sheen was extremely cute. Angus T Jones (Tv’s richest kid) plays the stupid and gross kid and you still manage to feel bad for him. The opening credits of the show has him transform to a chubby cute kid to a….taller chubby cute kid.

Luke from Modern Family: Luke, Luke, Luke. He’s fun, adventurous, stupid and almost evil. Sure, Manny’s funny because he’s already an adult, but Luke is a real thirteen year old, he doesn’t care about consequences and he just wants to have fun.  What’s really fascinating is that vacuous Luke, who hates the cops is played by Nolan Gould, who is a member of Mensa. Watch him on Ellen and you’ll fall in love with him.
