'The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air': This Is What "Ashley Banks" Looks Like Today
26 years ago, Tatyana Ali became famous all over the world with the role of "Ashley Banks", "Will's" little cousin on The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. Let's have a look at what the gorgeous actress has been doing ever since the show ended!
In The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, Tatyana Ali (40) enchanted millions of sitcom fans when she was just eleven years old. She played the role of "Ashley Banks", who is "Will's" (Will Smith) little cousin.
"Will" and "Ashley" had a close relationship in the show, which often led to conflicts in the family, since her parents were afraid that "Will" with his shenanigans could be a negative influence on the teenager.
The Fresh Prince went off the air in 1996, but for the past 24 years the now 40-year-old Tatyana has managed to have continued success as an actress.
