TV's Next Generation: Actors With Famous Folks
Phylicia Rashad and Condola Rashad
Famous Family: Phylicia Rashad, mother
Breaking Out on TV: One of our all-time favorite TV moms now has a grown-up daughter ready to join her on the small screen. 25-year-old Condola Rashad will star alongside her real-life mother, "The Cosby Show's" Phylicia Rashad, in Lifetime's new version of "Steel Magnolias," debuting October 7. But Condola and Phylicia won't play mom and daughter: Condola plays Shelby (the Julia Roberts role in the 1989 film), while Phylicia plays good-natured widow Clairee (the Olympia Dukakis role). A Tony nominee earlier this year for her work in the Broadway play "Stick Fly," Condola has also guest starred on "Smash," "The Good Wife," and "Law & Order: Criminal Intent."
