Other television roles
Around the same time she was starring in Punky Brewster, Frye’s voice was also heard in one episode of The Real Ghostbusters.
She co-starred alongside Sarah Chalke in I’ve Been Waiting For You, loosely based on the novel Gallows Hill by Lois Duncan.
She played Robin, a stuck-up girl, in a 4th season episode of Saved by the Bell. In 1990, she also played a romantic interest, Mimi Detweiler, to Fred Savage‘s character in an episode of The Wonder Years.
Frye appeared in Sabrina, the Teenage Witch as Roxie for the final three years of the show’s run (2000–2003). The show starred Melissa Joan Hart, who had auditioned for the part of Punky Brewster years before. Frye once auditioned for the series Charmed, a dramedy about a trio of witch sisters, for the role of “Paige Matthews“, but the role was given to Rose McGowan.
She also guest-starred as Katie in the series Friends in the episode ‘The One with the Girl who Hits Joey’.
In 2001, she debuted on the Disney Channel show The Proud Family as a voice talent of Zoey. She is currently voicing the character of Jade in the Bratz animated series.

Frye married Jason Goldberg, a television producer and actor, on October 25, 1998 in Los Angeles. Their first child, daughter Poet Sienna Rose Goldberg, was born on August 24, 2005, in Los Angeles. On March 17, 2008 she gave birth to another daughter, Jagger Joseph Blue Goldberg.
Her best friend is actress and former co-star/producer Melissa Joan Hart.
There are some sources that indicate she had once been a member of the Church of Scientology, but she is no longer associated with it since converting to Judaism.
She is co-founder of “the Little Seed”, an environmentally-conscious children’s specialty boutique in Los Angeles, CA.
The Little Seed, a children’s specialty boutique carrying eco-friendly and organic products, opens its doors in the hip, urban enclave of Larchmont Village at 219 Larchmont Blvd. Co-founded by new mothers Soleil Moon Frye and Paige Goldberg Tolmach, the goal was to create a one-stop shop for parents seeking products from skincare to bedding to toys that are made with organic or eco-friendly materials – healthy for babies and healthy for the planet… because it’s never too early to sow the seeds of care and responsibility.
“After spending months on the web researching and buying non-toxic and organic products that wouldn’t irritate our babies’ skin, we realized that the search to find these items was shockingly difficult” says Paige Goldberg Tolmach, who also co-founded Swoon Candles. Adds Soleil Moon Frye, actor/writer/director: “ We wanted to create a physical space – and an accompanying website – where parents had the option to purchase stylish organic and eco products exclusively.”
Apart from its beautiful, spacious retail area measuring over 2,200 square feet, The Little Seed will also provide a diaper changing station, a discreet nursing lounge as well as an arts & crafts area for the littlest shoppers. Because The Little Seed is committed to providing parents with succinct information on improving the health of their children and the planet, they will also offer creative classes for kids and educational seminars for parents. And since the education starts here, the entire store environment will be safe and non-toxic – from the no V.O.C. paint on the walls to the recycled shopping bags.
