Last updated: 01/13/2013 10:45:37 AM
Raven's full name is Raven-Symoné Christina Pearman.
Raven-Symone literally grew up in front of the cameras. This child model and actress made her COSBY SHOW debut when she was three years old; her career has been unstoppable ever since. She went straight from THE COSBY SHOW to a four-year stint on the popular sitcom HANGIN' WITH MR. COOPER, with guest appearances in THE FRESH PRINCE OF BEL AIR and SPACE GHOST along the way. She played the five-year-old Queen in the miniseries of the same name, was Stymie's girlfriend in the 1994 big-screen LITTLE RASCALS, and voiced Goldilocks in HAPPILY EVER AFTER: FAIRY TALES FOR EVERY CHILD. She has also had memorable roles in both Eddie Murphy's DOCTOR DOLITTLE feature films, as well as appearing as Nebula Wade in XENON: GIRL OF THE 21ST CENTURY. Her upcoming projects include starring roles in the 2002 series THAT'S SO RAVEN and the animated KIM POSSIBLE.
Raven-Symone hasn't stopped at acting, though. She's a singer as well, and has released two CDs. She has toured in the musical production A MOTHER'S PRAYER, and even sung as a warm-up act for boy band 'N Sync. Somewhere in the midst of this hectic schedule, she finds time to attend high school in Atlanta.
