Raven-Symone Christina Pearman (born December 10, 1985 in Atlanta, Georgia, USA) is an actress, comedian, model, singer, songwriter, dancer and TV producer who guest starred as Claudia in "Vying for Attention," the 21st episode in the second season of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. Symone is known for her starring roles as Olivia Kendall in the final three seasons of The Cosby Show, Nicole Lee in Hangin' with Mr. Cooper and as Raven Baxter in That's So Raven. She has also appeared in the films Dr. Dolittle, Dr. Dolittle 2, The Cheetah Girls, The Cheetah Girls 2 and College Road Trip.
Symone's sexual orientation has been a matter of dispute. Although she acknowledged being in a relationship with a female partner, she has also hinted around to being pan-sexual when describing looking at guys and girls as romantic interests since age 12, and has also identified as being a "human who loves humans."
