Talking "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air" with KARYN PARSONS

Talking "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air" with KARYN PARSONS

She played one of TV's most iconic snobs, but in real life, Karyn Parsons couldn't be any more different than the character she gave life to, the one-of-a-kind Hilary Banks. We chatted with Karyn about creating the daughter that everyone loved to hate, why the "Fresh Prince" tapings were a like a weekly VIP party, and her experiences working with some of the biggest names in entertainment who guest-starred on the show over the years, plus her amazing present-day work as the driving force behind Sweet Blackberry, the amazing nonprofit organization that brings little-known stories of African-American achievement to children everywhere. ​
