We simply adored Raven-Symoné Pearman (36) as little "Olivia" in the TV series The Cosby Show, but the cute little girl who always teased her on-screen grandfather Bill Cosby 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 also 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 36-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 for three years, she announced that she was lesbian in 2016. However, she married Miranda Maday in 2020. 

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.
