"The best advice my dad ever gave me is that acting is believing. Acting is not acting. It isn't putting on a face and dancing around in a mask. It's believing that you are that character and playing him as if it were a normal day in the life of that character."

Haley Joel Osment (born April 10, 1988 in Los Angeles, California) is a former child actor well-known for his roles in the early 21st century and often being seen as premier proof that children can act.

He's best known as Cole Sear, a boy who sees dead people, in The Sixth Sense, and the voice of Sora in the Kingdom Hearts video games. He is also becoming increasingly known in his adulthood for live-action roles in quirky, character-driven comedies such as the movie Sex Ed and the television series The Spoils of Babylon.

He is the older brother of Emily Osment, famous for playing Lilly in Hannah Montana and Gabi in Young & Hungry.
