Trivia: Emily Osment

  • Irony as She Is Cast:
    • Lilly Truscott has a terrible singing voice, whille Emily herself is a pretty good singer. Leads to a pretty bad case of Hollywood Tone-Deaf.
    • She is attending Occidental College in LA as of 2012, and is a well-educated daughter of teachers. This contrasts greatly with her Lilly role (even though Lilly and Miley do get to attend Standford College by the last season).
  • Playing Against Type:
    • As an martial arts-practicing contract killer in the upcoming web series Cleaners. Recent pictures and videos Emily has posted on Twitter from the shooting locations of the series show her face and hands covered in fake blood and scars.
    • Cyberbully is a very dramatic, tragic role for her compared to her usual comic or kids' action film roles (although she has acted in some small dramatic roles on TV prior to Spy Kids 2).
    • Melissa Morris, the hero Emily plays in the 2009 Disney Channel Original Movie Dadnapped is much smarter, girlier, (well, pre-2010), more graceful and less awkward than Lilly Truscott.
    • A Daughter's Nightmare is also a dramatic role, as the daughter of a widow seduced and manipulated by a psychopathic paramour.
  • What Could Have Been: She mentioned in a live chat in 2011 that the original title for her Fight Or Flight album would have been Ellipses.
    • As the above live chat video also points out (without naming names), a possible summer tour in 2011 with Emily opening up for Drake Bell was cancelled when Drake (or his management) pulled out at the last minute.
