Then + Now: Keshia Knight Pulliam from ‘The Cosby Show’
Ever wondered what happened to adorable little Rudy from ‘The Cosby Show’? She’s all grown up now, of course! Read on to see what she looks like now and what she’s been up to since the show ended.
Keshia Knight Pulliam played Rudy, the baby of the family on ‘The Cosby Show’ alongside legendary comedian Bill Cosby. At the age of six, she was the youngest actress to ever be nominated for an Emmy award — but she’d been acting even before she hit ‘The Cosby Show,’ starring on ‘Sesame Street’ at just three years old.
Keshia Knight Pulliam’s family moved to Virginia after ‘The Cosby Show’ ended, where Pulliam attended school before jumping back into acting. She guest-starred on Bill Cosby’s follow-up sitcom ‘Cosby’ as a teen, and in 2002, she won an episode of the show ‘Fear Factor.’ She also made appearances on celebrity editions of ‘The Weakest Link’ and ‘Mole.’
Pulliam is still acting, most recently starring in a couple of Tyler Perry movies, as well as Perry’s TV show, ‘Tyler Perry’s House of Payne,’ for which she won two NAACP Image Awards.
