Keisha Knight Pulliam is currently acting as the character "Miranda" on the Tyler Perry's Hit television show HOUSE OF PAYNE.
Born: April 09, 1979

A native of New Jersey, actress Keshia Knight Pulliam first rocketed into the national spotlight -- and won the hearts of many a devoted '80s television viewer -- as Rudy Huxtable, the spunky, pint-sized youngest daughter of Dr. Cliff Huxtable (Bill_Cosby), on The_Cosby_Show. Initially brought in at the age of five (in 1984), Knight Pulliam imparted the series with a "cuteness" factor that laudably waned somewhat as the program wore on and the actress herself aged (though producers eventually brought in Raven-Symone to fill the gap). By the fall of 1992, in fact -- when Cosby wrapped -- Knight Pulliam had reached her teens. Over the course of the series run, she received an Emmy nod for Best Supporing Actress at age six, and qualified at the time as the youngest actress to be nominated for an Emmy in history.

During Cosby, Knight Pulliam also essayed occasional feature roles; among other accomplishments, she headlined at several telemovies, including the period holiday drama The_Little_Match_Girl (1987), the Mark_Twain update A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court (1989), and Debbie_Allen's musical version of -Pollyanna, Polly (1989), as well as its sequel, Polly:_Comin'_Home! (1990). After The_Cosby_Show wrapped, Knight Pulliam attended Spelman College in Atlanta, then achieved a second wind in her career as a reality television star, on programs including a celebrity installment of Fear_Factor, Celebrity_Mole:_Yucatan, and a TV child stars episode of The_Weakest_Link. She also signed for a starring role in Tyler Perry's Madea Goes to Jail (2009), as Candy, a locked-up prostitute befriended by the sardonic, hell-raising Madea.

Tiny, spry, comic character actress dreamt of becomming a Broadway star. Instead she became a regular guest on Bob Hope's stable of TV specials and USO tours throughout the 1940...
