Smith, Alfonso Ribeiro, Karyn Parsons, Tatyana Ali, Daphne Maxwell Reid, Joseph Marcell and DJ Jazzy Jeff are seen in the living room of the Banks home reminiscing on the show and how they got involved.
“Jeff turned down the show literally 10 times,” Smith said of getting his friend and other half of their hip-hop duo DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince on board.
Notably absent is James Avery, who played Uncle Phil. Avery died in 2013 after complications from open heart surgery. But the cast fondly remembers him. At one point, Ali refers to Avery as “the heart of the show.”
