Raven Symone Pays Homage to Debbie Allen on ‘My Hero’

In AOL’s latest installment of My HeroRaven-Symone gushes over her love and respect for Debbie Allen.

The two first met on the set of The Cosby Show when Raven first captivated the world with her cute antics as Olivia Kendall. Thanks to her inaugural debut, the Award-winning actress became a pivotal person in the molding of the child star’s career.

“Ms. Debbie, what she does for me and my life, and what she does for me mentally when I go into the warzone that is Hollywood is really special” Symone said in the Hero segment. “If I didn’t have Ms. Debbie in my life, I’d probably be trying to figure out, like, what could I do next…”

Debbie Allen had her own sentiments to say about the young star. “Raven, she is like one of my kids. I’m somewhere between her other mom and her aunt—there is a trust there and you can’t manufacture that, you can’t make that.”
