How Raven-Symoné’s net worth was built

Raven-Symoné, sometimes referred to as Raven, was born Raven-Symoné Christina Pearman. She began building her net worth at the age of 2 when she appeared in ads for Jell-O, Cool Whip, Ritz Crackers and the Ford Motor Co. Her acting talents were discovered when she auditioned for a role in “Ghost Dad,” starring Bill Cosby. Cosby put her in the cast of his popular TV series, “The Cosby Show,” where she played Olivia Kendall for the show’s last three seasons.

Success on “The Cosby Show” led to various acting roles, most notably with the Walt Disney Co. Raven-Symoné’s net worth got a big boost from her starring role in “That’s So Raven,” the first Disney original TV series to produce 100 episodes. Merchandise tied to the program, for which she gets a percentage of profits, has generated $400 million in sales.

Raven-Symoné is also a film actress, appearing in such movies as “The Little Rascals” (1994), “Zeon: Girl of the 21st Century” (1999) and “College Road Trip” (2008). She starred in Disney’s “The Cheetah Girls” (2003) and “The Cheetah Girls 2” (2006), which showcased her singing talents. This led to her signing with Disney’s Hollywood Records and her 2004 album “This Is My Time.”

Her net worth as of March 2017, according to Celebrity Net Worth, is $55 million.
