Raven-Symone Biography

Birthdate: December 10, 1985
Birthplace: Atlanta, Georgia
Real Name: Raven-Symone Christina Pearman

She was acting long before she could read and has become one of Disney's "It" girls. She may only be 21, but that hasn't stopped Raven from building up a pretty impressive resume. Get the 411 on Raven AKA Raven-Symone.

Raven-Symone - Breaking Into the Biz

While most actors struggle through hundreds of auditions and bit parts before ever making it big, Raven had landed her career-launching role at the tender age of four. When she was just two, she was signed by the Ford Modeling Agency and her family moved to New York to help advance her career. In 1989, Raven auditioned for a part in the Bill Cosby movie, Ghost Dad. She was a little too young for the part, but Bill Cosby liked her so much that he found a part for her on his show, The Cosby Show, as his grand-daughter Olivia. Raven played the part of Olivia until 1992, when The Cosby Show went off the air.

Raven-Symone - Hits the Big Screen

Within a year after The Cosby Show ended, Raven had already snagged another big part as Nicole Lee on the show Hangin' With Mr. Cooper. During her time on that show, Raven also managed to land her first big screen role in the movie The Little Rascals. From there, Raven was unstoppable - playing opposite Eddie Murphy in both Dr. Dolittle and Dr. Dolittle 2. She then appeared in both Fat Albert and The Princess Diaries 2: The Royal Engagement in 2004. Her next big screen project, Double Dutch, is scheduled to be released sometime in 2007.

Raven-Symone - Teaming Up With Disney

In 2002, Raven signed up with Disney to star in her very own TV show, That's So Raven. Disney gigs have kept Raven a very busy girl. Not only does she work on That's So Raven, she also lends her voice to the cartoon Kim Impossible. If that's not enough, Raven is also a member of the all-girl band, The Cheetah Girls, who have their own CD and two Disney Original TV movies! The latest Cheetah Girls flick, The Cheetah Girls 2, follows the girls to Spain - and you can now own it on DVD!

Raven-Symone Says...

"I worked with the same choreographer that I have been working with for years, so he knows my style and he knows what I like and what I hate and can't do. Turns don't work very well for me; I just can't get all the way around."
