Raven-Symone

For Raven-Symoné's character Georgia, making it in the Big Apple isn't so easy.

In her new series State of Georgia, the 25-year-old actress plays Georgia Chamberlain, a confident Southern girl who moves to New York to become a star. With the help of her best friend Jo (Majandra Delfino), and her Aunt Honey (Loretta Devine), Georgia does whatever it takes — like working odd jobs — to make it big.
