Personal Quote:

[on her personal life]: My parents and my family really tried to maintain as much of a normal environment as possible. When I went home it wasn't Keshia Knight Pulliam the actress, the glitz, the glamour. It was Keshia the daughter. Oldest of four children, who washed the dishes and did everything she was supposed to do. See more »

Trivia:

At just 6 years of age, she became the youngest actress ever to be nominated for an Emmy (best supporting-actress) for her work on The Cosby Show (1986). See more »
