Jurnee Smollett-Bell is one of those faces you surely recognize from TV, but maybe you don’t actually know her name. In just the last week, she’s been cast on the sixth season of True Blood and to play Phylicia Rashad’s daughter in Do No Harm, so if you don’t know her yet, you will.
Here’s a jog down memory lane — or a jog down her IMDb page, really — that should help you figure out exactly why she looks so familiar:
3. 1992–1994: Denise, “Full House”
5. 1996: Phoebe, “Jack”
7. 1998: Jurnee, “Cosby”
12. 2009–2011: Jess, “Friday Night Lights”
20. And congrats for making the transition from child star to adulthood look so easy!
