Carlton Banks, aka Alfonso Ribeiro

Alfonso Ribeiro has stuck to television since leaving Fresh Prince. In 2013, he participated in UK reality show I'm a Celebrity... and followed it with a stint on Dancing With the Stars, which he won (obvs bc the Carlton dance).

He has also shown an interest in swinging clubs on the fairway with famous friends such as Justin Timberlake.

Hilary Banks, aka Karyn Parsons

Karyn Parsons went quiet on acting around 2002. Now, however, she's turned her talents into helping bring "little known stories of African-American history to children everywhere" with her company Sweet Blackberry.


The original Vivian Banks, aka Janet Hubert

Warner Bros

Janet Hubert had success outside of Fresh Prince in acting, making appearances in shows such as Friends and Gilmore Girls. Fun fact – in 2013, she was the voice of Aunt Denise in the Grand Theft Auto V video game.

Ashley Banks, aka Tatyana Ali

After Fresh Prince, Tatyana Ali continued to act in both TV and film. Unsurprisingly to some, especially after singing on Fresh Prince, Ali enjoyed success as a musician in the UK and US. She currently has three top 20 hits in the UK, all from her debut album, Kiss the Sky.

Geoffrey, aka Joseph Marcell

Warner Bros

The man behind the English butler (the best thing about Fresh Prince) made appearances in The Bill, Eastenders, and Holby City, to name a few. He's now on the board of the Globe Theatre in London and has hit the boards in numerous Shakespeare plays.


And, of course... WILL FUCKING SMITH, god of all mankind.

Neal Preston

Not only is he one half of the biggest power couple in Hollywood (hat tip to Jada, queen of queens), with a power family behind him (are Jaden and Willow even mortal teenagers?), he's continued to have ~massive~ success in acting.

In 2016, Smith is set to star next to Margot Robbie and Jared Leto in Suicide Squad.
