Raven-Symoné Christina Pearman (b. 1985) became famous at the age of four as Olivia Kendall on The Cosby Show, filling the show's cute-toddler gap as actress Keshia Knight Pulliam (Rudy Huxtable) aged out of that role. As a teenager, she starred on the popular Disney Channel series That's So Raven which ran from 2002 to 2006, and was a member of the Cheetah Girls. Choosing to be credited simply as Raven around the time of That's So Raven, she later decided to reinstate the "Symoné."
Raven played Charisse Dolittle in the Creature Shop film Dr. Dolittle (and its two non-Henson sequels). Her other credits include the sitcom State of Georgia and the animated series Kim Possible (as Monique).
- Raven appeared in the 1990 special The Muppets at Walt Disney World, where she cheered up Kermit by singing "Rainbow Connection" with him. Kermit runs from the guard Quentin before she could get a chance to sing "Bein' Green".
- While she shared no scenes with the Muppets, Raven appeared in a Cosby Show episode that also featured the Jim Henson Hour characters.
