Even though it has been over two decades since Emmanuel Lewis made his debut on the hit television series “Webster,” he still receives fan mail. “My home is the only place I can go where I’m not mobbed,” says the ABC series star.
Lewis portrayed a young boy who, after losing his parents, is adopted by his NFL-pro godfather, portrayed by Alex Karras, and his new socialite wife, portrayed by Susan Clark.
