Many know actress Andrea Barber as annoying neighbor Kimmy Gibbler on the family sitcom Full House. Barber's first foray into show business came in 1982, when she took on the role of Carrie Brady on the soap opera Days of Our Lives when she was just 6-years-old. She would make a smattering of other minor guest appearances on various TV shows over the following few years, before scoring the role of Kimmy in 1987. Barber would remain on Full House until its cancellation in 1995, after which she retired from show business, studied English at Whittier College, and later married and became a mother.
