t's the usual scenario:
Five-year-old boy, born in
Haifa, Israel, moves to
California with his parents
— dad, a rabbi, and mom, a
cantor —and exudes so much
talent that he gets
discovered while acting in a
little summer music theater
workshop's production of
The Wizard of Oz as he
played king of the mun-
chkins and a bush (because
he was too small to play a
tree).
Usual? That's what
happened to Edan Gross,
who now stars on ABC's
"Free Spirit," a new sitcom
that airs Sunday nights at 8
p.m.
Gross, 11, recalled that
day six years ago. "At the
final performance (of
Wizard), some agents came,
my agents now, and asked
my parents if I could be an
actor. My parents turned
them down, but they sneak-
ed over to me and asked me
for my phone number. I
didn't know at the time why
they wanted it, but I gave it
to them."-
He continued, "They kept
trying, and my mom and dad
kept saying no. And then
one day, I overheard their
conversation, and I said,
`Well, wait a minute; I want
to try acting,' so they let me
do it, and somehow I'm an
actor."
Gross got his first break in
acting when he appeared
years ago on the TV program
"Trapper John, M.D." On
the show; he played a

homeless kid who breaks his
leg. "I had to wear a cast
every day (until the episode
was completed)," he said. "It
was weird wearing a cast
when your leg wasn't even
broken." That role only
warmed him up for his
recurring appearances on
"Empty Nest," where he
played a 9-year-old hypo-
chondriac, and a starring
role in the yet-to-be-released
movie Best of the Best, where
he gets hit by a car and
breaks his leg.
His other TV credits in-
clude "Murphy Brown,"_
"Webster," "The Golden
Girls," "Cheers,"
"Newhart," "The Tracey
Ullman Show," "Highway to
Heaven," "The Twilight
Zone" and "Married. . .With
Children."
"I was on 'Married. . .With
Children' twice. Last season,
I played Al Bundy as a kid,"
Gross said. On the episode,
Bundy forgets to return his
library book — 30 years after
it's due. "There was a
flashback when Al was a kid
checking the book out. He
was real mean to the
librarian. It was a real fun
part to play."
Gross also starred in two
TV shows, "Almost Home,"
a spin-off of "Webster," and
"Sweet Surrender," in
which actress Dana ("China
Beach") Delaney played his
mother. Both shows were
short-lived.
Three years ago, he
starred as Brian (Cocoon
Dennehy's son in the TV
movie of the week
"Acceptable Risks." He also
appeared in "Daddy," an-
other TV movie of the week.
