Gary Wayne Coleman (February 8, 1968 May 28, 2010) was an American actor, comedian, and writer whom VH1 rated first on a list of "100 Greatest Kid Stars" on television.[1] He won and was nominated for several awards throughout his career, including receiving nominations from the Young Artist Awards and the People's Choice Awards.

He was best known for his role as Arnold Jackson in the sitcom Diff'rent Strokes (19781986). Along with this, he was also the star of the animated-show The Gary Coleman Show (1982), and voiced Kevin in the animated-show Waynehead (19961997). He also made many guest appearances across many television shows, of which also include voice roles, and also appeared at several televised awards ceremonies. Aside from his work on television, Coleman worked in film, debuting with the film On the Right Track (1981). His other notable films include starring in Jimmy the Kid (1982), The Kid with the Broken Halo (1982), Church Ball (2006), An American Carol (2008), and Midgets vs. Mascots (2009). He also made appearances in music videos, and starred in the video games The Curse of Monkey Island (1997) as Kenny Falmouth, and Postal 2 (2003) as himself.

In spite of having a successful acting career, Coleman struggled financially in later life. In 1989, he successfully sued his parents and business adviser over misappropriation of his assets, only to declare bankruptcy a decade later. On May 28, 2010, Coleman died of a subdural hematoma at age 42.
