Lilakoi Moon – birthname Lisa Michelle Bonet – is an American actress and activist. She rose to fame in the early eighties, upon landing the role of Denise Huxtable on "The Cosby Show."


Bonet briefly left "The Cosby Show" for a year to pursue other projects in Hollywood. She returned to "The Cosby Show" a year later.

However, her contract with "The Cosby Show" was canceled shortly after her return due to creative differences with the show's executive producers.



Lisa Bonet is married to Jason Momoa, who is known for his portrayal of Ronan Dex in "Stargate Atlantis," as Khal Drogo in "Game of Thrones."

The couple began dating in 2005 but only tied the knot two years ago. They have been together for more than 14 years.

Both Bonet and Momoa value their privacy. For years it was assumed that the couple walked down the aisle in 2007.


Momoa first saw Bonet on "The Cosby Show" in the late eighties, and it was love at first sight. He vowed back then that he would marry her one day.

Momoa was officially introduced to Bonet in 2005 through mutual friends. She was 37 years old at the time, and Momoa was only 25.

The secret to their success is maintaining close bonds within the family. Their extended family gets along well, and Bonet loves nothing more than getting everyone in the same room together.



Bonet shares a daughter – Zoë Isabella Kravitz – with her former husband, musician Lenny Kravits. The couple divorced in the early nineties.

Bonet and Momoa welcomed their first child together in July 2007, a daughter they named Lola Iolani Momoa. Their son, Nakoa-Wolf Manakauapo Namakaeha Momoa, was born in December 2008.

The 30-year-old Zoë inherited her mother's looks and talent. Zoe is an acclaimed actress in her own right and has starred in "X-Men: First Class," followed by roles in "The Divergent Series" and "Mad Max: Fury Road."



Bonet truly cemented her career when the then 19-year-old actress was cast opposite Mickey Rourke and Robert De Niro in "Angel Heart."

She also portrayed the role of Rachel Banks in "Enemy of the State" opposite Will Smith and was cast as Marie De Salle in "High Fidelity" opposite John Cusack.

While she never received the award for her time on "The Cosby Show," Bonet won the award in 1988 for "Angel Heart," as "Best Young Female Superstar in a Motion Picture."

In 1988, she was also nominated for an Emmy Award in the category of "Outstanding Supporting Actress In A Comedy Series" for "The Cosby Show."

Bonet was also nominated for a Saturn Award for "Angel Heart," a Black Reel Award for "High Fidelity," and a TV Land Award for "Favourite Singing Siblings," in "The Cosby Show."
