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.
