"The Cosby Show": Raven-Symoné today
Raven-Symoné played sweet Olivia Kendall in the successful US sitcom The Cosby Show from 1989 to 1992. We would hardly recognize her if we saw her today though!
We simply adored Raven-Symoné Pearman (32) as little Olivia in the TV series The Cosby Show, but the cute little girl who has always teased her on-screen grandfather Bill Cosby (81) is now an attractive young woman.
Raven-Symoné after The Cosby Show
Raven-Symoné is known for her eccentric hairstyles and appeared in several Hollywood box office hits since starring in The Cosby Show, including Dr. Dolittle (1998), The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement (2004) and Revenge of the Bridemaids (2010). Raven was the star of her very own Disney show That's So Raven from 2003 to 2007.
Raven-Symoné also works as a musician
Apart from acting, Raven's great passion is music. The young star has released four albums (Here's To New Dreams, Undeniable/From Then Until, This Is My Time). Raven's last album Raven-Symoné was released in 2008. She had planned to release a fifth studio album in 2014, but released two new singles in 2016 instead.
Raven-Symoné came out in 2013
After same-sex marriage was legalized in the USA in 2013, the now 32-year-old tweeted, "I can finally get married! Yeah, I'm so proud of the government". After being in a relationship with designer AzMarie Livingston (31) for three years, she announced that she was lesbian in 2016.
Raven-Symoné is now back on TV on a regular basis. The actress is a main cast member in the spin-off series Raven's Home, which premiered in 2018 on the Disney Channel.
Raven-Symoné quit her job as a host on the talk-show The View so as to be able to film Raven's Home. She also recently appeared in the new season of Black-ish as Rhonda Johnson, too.
