Cherie Johnson was born in the small town of Duquesne (Du-kane) a few minutes outside Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. This African American/ Puerto Rican little girl was soon to be a trend setter having her sights on Hollywood, California at the young age of 6. Little did a young Cherie know that she had a famous uncle (David Duclon, the creator of Silver Spoons, producer of Mork & Mindy, The Jeffersons, Happy Days, The Odd Couple, Laverne & Shirley, etc) who held her close to his heart and mind. Using Cherie as a muse, he wrote a pilot for NBC titled "Punky Brewster" and anticipated his niece would solely be thrilled that he named one of the characters after her. This bright-eyed bushy tailed star gazer couldn't grasp the idea of anyone other than herself playing a character of her namesake. Uncle Duclon had sold the show to NBC and the part of Cherie was to be cast through traditional auditions. Not a clue of what an audition was, Cherie's persistence paid off. After 6 auditions across the country little Cherie Johnson went from muse to TV Star! In 1986, Cherie was chosen to tour the USA as the National Cheer Representative for the Just Say No to Drugs Campaign through 1988. Her body of work, mainly TV roles, later included a part in the hit TV show "Family Matters." In 1994, she founded the "Off The Streets" program which provided recreational activities, tutoring services, and a safe haven for children whose parents worked long hours. The program included teaching the children arts & crafts, various fields of the entertainment industry (singing, dancing, acting), and skills that prepared them for the real world. She has continued doing voice over work, as well as appearing in TV and movies.
