Actress Lisa Bonet is best known for her role on the '80s sitcom The Cosby Show and its spin-off, A Different World — a gig she booked when she was just 17 years old! Lisa played Denise, the popular teenage daughter of Cliff (Bill Cosby) and Clair Huxtable (Phylicia Rashad).

Originally a Cali girl, Lisa started her career in entertainment as a young kid, appearing in a few TV series and competing in beauty pageants. But she's come a long way since her days with the Cosbys…

On her 20th birthday, she eloped with singer Lenny Kravitz, and a year later in 1987, she gave birth to daughter Zoe, who followed along in her mother’s acting footsteps. Lisa, now 46, has also appeared in a few films such as Enemy of the State, alongside Will Smith, and High Fidelity.
