Will Smith joined the cast of the series “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air,” during a special program on the social network Snapchat, issued between yesterday and this Thursday, dedicated to the mythical production of the 1990s.
The meeting was attended by Alfonso Ribeiro (Carlton Banks), DJ Jazzy Jeff (Jazz), Tatyana Ali (Ashley Banks), Karyn Parsons (Hilary Banks), Daphne Maxwell Reid (Aunt Vivian) and Joseph Marcell (Geoffrey), who, in turn, reminded James Avery, who played the character of uncle Phillip, and he died in 2014 of complications in the heart.
During the interview, published partially in YouTube, Smith asked his classmates how they felt when they were still recognized by the characters who performed more than 20 years ago.
DJ Jazzy admitted that he came to be “very, very upset” because “everyone wanted to do the handshake” that he made popular in the comedy alongside Smith.
“Notabas in the eyes of the people when they were about to start the greeting, and I simply grabbed her hand and argued,” he recalled.
In another conversation with Alfonso Ribero, who embodied the cousin Carlton, Smith recalled that he decided to name his character in the series like in real life thanks to your advice.
After the meeting, the actor posted on Instagram a video in tribute to James Avery.
“Our series would not have been even half of what it was without the talent and the light of James Avery. All we love you and we miss you, James,” he wrote.
The trampoline final for the fame that it enjoys Smith was precisely “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air”, one of the television comedies the most popular, issued in the U.S. between 1990 and 1996, and in which she played a humble young girl from Philadelphia who moved to the mansion of their rich uncles and aunts of California
