You might recognize Alfonso Ribeiro as the host of “America’s Funniest Home Videos,” and it’s not surprising that he is still in the comedy industry. Alfonso has been in the funny biz for years and showed off his dancing talent (not only to Tom Jone’s tunes) but also in the 19th season of “Dancing with Stars.”
Alfonso is married to Angela Unkrich, has three children, and remains one of the funniest characters on screen. You might have spotted him on a few commercials here and there and on the “Kelly Clarkson Show.”
For her role of Aunt Viv, Janet Hubert was nominated as an outstanding actress in a comedy series. As Migon on "King Ester," the digital series, in 2020, she was nominated for a Daytime Ammy award.
Janet is still professionally active (2021), married to Larry Kraft, and is the ambassador of the National Osteoporosis Foundation.
It's not unusual to be loved by anyone, and it's not unusual to know exactly who we are referring to when we sing along to these lyrics. Played by Alfonso Ribeiro, Carlton was a Tom Jone's lover and will Smith's second half. They both completed one another, and the show reached the heights it did, thanks to their chemistry on the set.
Carton was Will's cousin. Conservative and a bit of a square peg, he carried an annoying nature but with a heart of gold. The heart and nature come together, apparently.
One of the two Banks sisters alongside Ashley Banks. Hilary (Karyn Parsons) is characterized as a ditzy snob. Very attractive yet very shallow, she looks down at Will's background and centers her life on shopping and money.
With that said, Hillary is loved and shows love to her family, and, unfortunately, is stereotyped as the bad girl. What can we say, every show needs a bad girl and The Fresh Prince was lucky to have Hilary do the part as she did it perfectly.
Karyn Parsons stared alongside Damon Wayans in the 1995 movie "Major Payne" and has published, amongst others, two children's books. Interestingly, she also published a novel, which was based on her mother's childhood memories.
Besides the fact that she is married and has two children, her last appearance on the big screen was in 2017, and she is currently focussing on writing and publishing.
