First it was JCPenney’s Breakfast Club commercial and then George Michael’s comeback concert and now Lisa Bonet back on television!
The ex-Cosby kid is making her return to the small screen on the ABC cop drama, Life On Mars, playing Maya Daniels, the girlfriend of Jason O’Mara’s time-traveling character Sam Tyler.
After virtually disappearing from TV in the early 1990s, Bonet left a void in Blindie’s heart that could not be filled with her occasional paltry film roles in Enemy of the State (1998), High Fidelity (2000 ) and Biker Boyz (2003). We yearned for more of the free-spirited Denise Huxtable we fell in love with on The Cosby Show and the sultry Epiphany Proudfoot that scandalized us in Angel Heart.
Blindie followed her private life, rooting for her marriage with the equally free-spirited and sultry Lenny Kravitz and really wanted to believe Lenny when he sang “it ain’t over till it’s over.” Blindie’s even begun idolizing her look-alike daughter Zoe Kravitz!
So we’re pretty much besides ourselves that Bonet, who now calls herself Lilakoi Moon (and whose real name is actually Lisa Michelle Boney), can be seen around New York filming scenes for Life On Mars and strolling with her boyfriend Jason Momoa, of Stargate Atlantis, and their daughter Lola Iolani.
