Lisa Bonet Career
Bonet got the role of Denise Huxtable on The Cosby Show, the second oldest child of the parents played by Bill Cosby and Phylicia Rashad, after competing in beauty pageants and making guest appearances on television series as a child. She departed The Cosby Show for a brief period in 1987 to star in the spin-off series A Different World, which centered on Denise’s college years. Bonet, who was 19 at the time, starred opposite Mickey Rourke in the film Angel Heart as Epiphany Proudfoot, a 17-year-old. Several seconds of an explicit encounter she shared with Rourke (filmed when she was 18) were cut out of the film in order to achieve an R certification.
Following that, Interview magazine published a topless centerspread. Bonet quit A Different World after revealing her pregnancy during the show’s run. The next year, she returned to The Cosby Show but was sacked due to “creative disagreements” in April 1991. Following The Cosby Show, Bonet appeared in a number of direct-to-video and made-for-TV films. Why Bother Voting?, an election program concentrating on the worries and indifference of young voters, was broadcast by Bonet in September 1992. In the films Enemy of the State (1998) and High Fidelity (2000), she played a supporting part. She reconnected with her A Different World co-star Kadeem Hardison in 2003’s Biker Boyz, where she played Queenie.
In 2005, Bonet appeared in Whitepaddy as a co-star. While she did not participate in another film until 2014’s Road to Paloma, she did feature in a number of television dramas and comedies, beginning in 2008 with the American remake of the British television series Life on Mars. She starred alongside her future husband Jason Momoa in the 2014–15 series The Red Road.
