But the elder Coleman did manage to explain that Gary climbed out of his crib when he was only two months old and has been on the move ever since. He began talking at 13 months, entertaining his grandparents and everyone else. "When he was five, we found an agent in Chicago," Coleman said. "We knew from the time he began to talk that he had a special quality about him.

He was a natural entertainer. "Gary did about 30 TV commercials. We brought him to Hollywood for the pilot of 'The Little a Norman Lear project that didn't become a series. "Then Mr. Lear took Gary into his office for a conference.

Not long after that he signed Gary to a contract put him in Diff'rent Gary, wearing a Spider Man T-shirt, said, "Everybody thinks me and Arnold Jackson, the kid I play in the show, are alike. But we aren't. "I'm more subtle and playful than Arnold. He's a little bit funny, but California people will laugh at anything." His mother said, "You and Arnold are one and the same boy. Neither one of you keep your room straight." "Arnold and Gary both have smart mouths," his father put in.

"I'll get you for that," Gary replied. "I like a messy room. I like junk. Sometimes I like acting and sometimes I don't. It's no fun going to work at 7:30 in the morning.

"And I don't like being famous or being interviewed. Being famous is no fun. It's too much trouble because I can't be myself. Wherever I go people pick me up and try to kiss me. Blah.

I hate to be picked over. "When I go back" to school in Zion, the kids made a big fuss over me. All except my girlfriend, Melissa Swagger. She's 11 and taller than me. But HOLLYWOOD (UPI) Kid actors are a breed apart, each different in his own way, each with one foot in the adult world and the other in childhood, never really belonging to either.

Juvenile stars grow up in the spotlight which often is inimitable to normal psychological growth. Some survive to become adult stars. Some don't.

He is the only son of W.G. and Edmonia Coleman of Zion, 111., some 60 miles south of Chicago.

His parents are quiet and dignified. W.G. is an inspector for a pharmaceutical company. The Coleman family makes its home in Zion but is looking for a temporary residence in Hollywood to accomodate their we're not getting married don't like girls that much." Gary prefers going to school on the set, tutored with Todd Bridges and Dona Plato, the other children in "Diff'rent Strokes." The youngster said he learns a great deal more in considerably less time with the tutor than in his public school in Illinois. "I was surprised when I went back to the Zion school.

I had passed everybody in the class, including the teacher. "I like Zion a lot more than Hollywood. Hollywood is a place to work. Zion is a place to live. My family and relatives are in Illinois, not California.

There's more to do in Zion and that's where my dog, Champion, lives. "Champion is a fat German shepherd. He weighs 150 pounds because my Dad feeds him too much. He's so fat I can ride him like a horse. What I really like is model trains.

I put them together. Right now I have about IS of 'em. "I might not be an actor when I grow up. I might be a railroad engineer. I love going down the tracks at SO miles an hour.
