Will Smith reunites with cast of ‘Fresh Prince of Bel Air’

By Emmy Griffiths

The Banks family have reunited! The cast of The Fresh Prince of Bel Air, including Will Smith, Karyn Parsons, Tatyana Ali, Daphne Maxwell Reid, Alfonso Ribeiro and Joseph Marcell, had an epic reunion over the weekend. Alfonso - who played Carlton in the hit sitcom - shared a photo on Instagram, writing: "Always amazing to spend an afternoon with my Fresh Prince family. Wishing that James Avery was still with us to make this complete." James Avery, who played the family patriarch Phillip Banks on the hit show, sadly passed away in 2013 aged 68 from complications following heart surgery.

Fans of the show were quick to praise the snap, with one writing: "That is a fantastic reunion photo. I absolutely love it." Another added: "All six seasons are on Netflix and you don't realise that still to this day I'm rewatching it all. Only last night I was binge watching the show! Can't get enough... ever!" However, some fans asked about the whereabouts of Jazzy Jeff, who played Will's hapless best friend in the show.

The DJ has previously opened up about reuniting with Will to perform at Glastonbury. Speaking about bringing their hip hop duo back together, he said: "The biggest part of us doing [a reunion] is the clearing of the schedule. I tour about 180 days out of the year but [Will] makes movies so it's more on his side of having to clear a schedule for us to be able to rehearse and go on the road. Sometimes it gets a little hard with him being one of the biggest movie stars in the world to free up his time. He absolutely positively wants to do this."
