Biography

Raven-Symoné successfully transitioned from a precocious child actor to a multi-talented entertainer, all without succumbing to the pitfalls of fame. Early in her career, Symoné worked with comedy legend Bill Cosby on his long-running and beloved family series "The Cosby Show" (NBC, 1984-1992). Plucked from relative obscurity, Symoné matched wits and bantered with Cosby, soon winning the hearts of millions of viewers as one of America's funniest kids. She parlayed her fame into acting in feature films such as "Dr. Dolittle" (1998) with Eddie Murphy and "College Road Trip" (2008) with Martin Lawrence. Yet it was Symoné's starring role on the Disney Channel series "That's So Raven" (2003-07) as a fun-loving and wacky teenager who possessed psychic abilities that turned her into a teen icon. The series became a long-running franchise for Disney, and also paved the way for shows like "Hannah Montana" (Disney Channel, 2006-2011) and its breakout star Miley Cyrus. Through her work, Symoné also taught millions of young viewers to embrace their body type and promoted positive self-esteem. Years after "That's So Raven" went off the air, Symoné continued to entertain, all while maintaining the cheerful and inspirational qualities that made her one of Hollywood's most memorable child stars.
