Tiffani-Amber Thiessen, Mark-Paul Gosselaar, Brian Austin Green, Melissa Joan Hart. Like many tween stars of the late 80s and 90s period, Soleil Moon Frye is no exception to the three-name rule. In 1984 at the age of 8, she played the chirpy, independent foster kid, Punky Brewster. (Punky Power to everyone who watched it religiously.) Throughout the decade that followed, she collected guest roles on some of the most quintessentially 90s shows – Saved by the Bell, The Wonder Years, and Friends, to name a few. Later on, post-Y2K (sigh of relief), she accompanied Sabrina the Teenage Witch to college as Roxie King. In honor of her birthday (tomorrow), here's a feel-good blast from the past and some Soleil-inspired OC picks.
