A favorite with family audiences for her turn as the outspoken Denise Huxtable on "The Cosby Show" (NBC, 1984-1992), Lisa Bonet was an Emmy-nominated actress who used the popular series to launch herself into feature films. After departing the "Cosby Show," amidst some controversy, she attempted to distance herself from her clean-cut all-American character by appearing in Alan Parker's voodoo thriller "Angel Heart" (1987), which gained attention for her participation in a graphic sex scene with star Mickey Rourke. The gambit failed to develop a film career for Bonet, and by 1987, she was back on television and working for Cosby, who had developed the clean-cut sitcom "A Different World" (NBC, 1987-1993). But a romance with rocker Lenny Kravitz resulted in a child, which forced her to depart the series after its debut season. Her subsequent marriage to Kravitz failed in 1993, and she spent much of the next decade in direct-to-video releases and TV guest spots, trying to get a foothold in the industry yet again. Bonet's career began to reignite at the turn of the new millennium with supporting roles in major features like "Enemy of the State" (1998), "High Fidelity" (2000) and "Biker Boyz" (2003). But it was in 2008, when she made a welcome return to television as the love interest to Jason O'Mara's time-traveling cop in the American version of "Life on Mars" (ABC, 2008) that those who had loved her as a Cosby kid could once again see why her ethereal beauty and quiet strength had struck a chord in viewers over 20 years before.
