It’s been almost 20 years since the last season of Fresh Prince of Bel Air went on air, have a look at what they're doing now...
If you ever sit and wonder how the cast from your favourite 90s show are doing, look no further.
Fresh Prince of Bel Air gave us the best inspiration for all you needed to survive at school. Whether it was Carlton‘s dance moves, Hilary‘s wardrobe, or Will‘s street-smart – you had it covered.
The NBC show, which first aired in 1990 focused around the cheeky Will Smith, who was sent by his mother ‘to live with his aunty and uncle in Bel Air. ‘
Will, now 46, was already rapping under the Fresh Prince moniker, before filming for the show began.
When the show finished in 1996 *sob* – Will’s acting career took off at lightening speed. And he went on to star in a huge number of films including: ‘Independence Day’, ‘Seven Pounds’, and of course ‘Men in Black’.
Remember Alfonso Ribeiro, 43, who brought us the Tom Jones-loving Carlton? Well after Fresh Prince he went on to star in the TV show ‘In The House‘ and a bunch other of cameos – including ‘Love Wrecked’.
He also did a stint in reality TV. In 2013 we saw him enter the jungle to take part in I’m a Celeb with the likes of Joey Essex. And last year he won Dancing with the Stars, and wiped out the other contestants with his final scores. He scored an amazing score of 40 out of 40 in all three dances. We knew Carlton had some moves, but wow!
And Hilary. She taught us that sometimes it is okay to marry for money, as well as having a tip-top wardrobe. Karyn Parsons, 48, nailed her interpretation of the ultra vain Hilary Banks.
After Fresh Prince, Karyn went on to star in the movies ‘Major Payne‘ and ‘The Ladies Man‘. Her last on screen appearance was in the early noughties, in ‘The Job’.
The baby of the household – Ashley Banks – was played by Tatyana Ali, who was only 11-years-old at the time! She later appeared in ‘Kiss the Girls‘, ‘Jaw Breaker‘, and more recently ‘The Young and the Restless’.
Who could ever forget Geoffrey the Butler! After Joseph Marcell‘s, now 66, Fresh Prince days, he made acting appearance on British turf, making an appearance in ‘Eastenders‘, and ‘King Lear‘ at the Globe Theater, London.
Daphne Maxwell Reid took over the role as Vivian Banks in 1993. She went on to make small TV appearances, inlcuding much-loved Sister Sister.
And then Uncle Phil. James Avery went on to write poetry and TV scripts, as well as voicing many animated series like the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. He passed away in 2014 after complications following heart surgery.
