When Raven-Symone earned her own T.V. show “That’s So Raven,” she already had 14 years of acting experience.At the age of five, Raven acted along with Bill Cosby, Lisa Bonet, and Malcom-Jamal Warner in “The Cosby Show.” By far the launching point of her career, Raven starred as Olivia Kendall, Cliff Huxtable’s (Cosby) step-granddaughter. Raven played as Olivia for three years.During that three year period, Raven made one time appearances in a variety of other TV episodes. From “TGIF” on ABC, to the “Muppets at Walt Disney World,” the actress was by no means a one show star. In-fact the actress also appeared on “The Fresh-Prince of Bel-Air.” Raven played as Claudia on the “Vying for Attention” episode.Following “The Cosby Show,” the child star landed the role of Nicole Lee on “Hangin’ with Mr. Cooper.” The series captured the story of a high school teacher, Mr. Cooper, and in 1992, Nicole Lee (Raven) came onboard as the teacher’s cousin. Raven starred as Nicole until 1997, during which, she also appeared in “Queen” and The Little Rascals.While not her first film, Doctor Dolittle was a break for Raven. Playing as Dr. Dolittle’s daughter, Charisse, the actress starred alongside Eddie Murphy and Peter Boyle in this 1998 film. From The Little Rascals to Zenon: Girl of the 21st Century, this was Raven’s first major role in a feature film. The star also appeared in the 2001 sequel, Dr. Dolittle 2.From Raven’s previous experience, especially her part in Zenon: Girl of the 21st Century, the child star went from small time roles to launching her Disney Channel career: particularly her show, “That’s So Raven.”
