Gary Coleman began his life as an adorable child actor, but failed to grow much due to a congenital kidney disease, remaining short and child-like throughout his life. His young success was damaged by his parents' theft of his earnings. At a particular low point in 2003, Coleman was forced to work as a superintendent at an apartment complex in the Avenue Q area of New York. A still relatively young Coleman died after a fall in 2010.


Gary Coleman played Arnold Jackson on the TV series Diff'rent Strokes (1978-1986). They are considered separate people in this timeline.
