He was SOOOO funny and I probably blew so many takes of his good stuff because I laughed. At one point, he made them put a scrim between us during takes because he couldn't say his lines straight because my face was contorting trying not to laugh.I suppose it's up to the actor to see if they enjoy being a character actor.ninja: whoops, Tobolowsky was in that other movie just about his many roles.Thanks for being here and thanks for being a part of Fresh Prince. And when we would straighten it on the show, my hair would start to break like crazy, and I would have to wear wigs, and you'd be all like "I can't go out there like this! " and there was nothing else to do but go out looking like that. You were so great and funny on "Fresh Prince."What was a typical work week like on set?Did everyone just show up Monday morning, get the new episode script, and memorize it over the next few days until shooting scenes on Thursday or Friday? And finally what is one thing about being a TV star that most people don't know about (could be related to the first two questions)? We would show up on Mondays, do a table reading where everybody sits around and read the script.But she loved acting in the movie with her brother and her father, and loved seeing the whole thing come together. I'm glad you are doing well with exciting and fulfilling new projects.I must admit you were a huge childhood crush of mine.Does the second Aunt Viv look as strange to you as she does to me when you watch reruns?Well it was like Darrin in Bewitched (I might be going back too far for some people but they switched the Darrins). her hair was probably already short when they first started filming, so for all the episodes with her having long hair she looks weird cause she is wearing a wig and skin cap on her head. He mooned James Avery offstage, James was on camera and Will mooned him offstage once. He wasn't like a George Clooney going around doing pranks all the time, but one thing he did that was : We had a line one week that kept changing, the writers were having fun with this line, and they would say "Dara can tie a cherry stem with her tongue" and then it would change to "Dara can do this," or that.
Since the Fresh Prince, I've acted in other television and film projects, but my primary focus has been on my children (I have two kids now) and my nonprofit organization Sweet Blackberry whose mission is to bring little known stories of African-American achievement to kids. Hope all is well with you and I wish you luck on Sweet Blackberry and everything else you pursue! I look at it now, hindsight is 20/20 and I can look back and say "wow, all that time in my room, I could have learned a language" but I did gain a lot from it. From your answers to others in the is AMA, it seems you have so many good memories from Fresh Prince..reason for regrets at all :)Thank you for answering my questions Karyn. However, probably more doors opened for me because of Hilary than were closed to me.And whatever he said, and acting with James, as you can see from the performance was invaluable. It really sucked for me to grow up because most of my friends have a mother and a father.Since my dad has not been in my life, my mom took a role as both a mother and a father.Then we would have a couple hours to kill while the writers made adjustments based on what they heard in the reading.Sometimes they would send us home if the script needed too many rewrites, otherwise we would go through the stages and run whatever scripts were in good enough shape. And at the end of those days, we did run-throughs in front of the writers and producers.https://twitter.com/Karyn_Parsons/status/451721326408253440This has been AWESOME. Gonna go check out Little Feet, but it would be nice to see you in a cameo of some sorts from time to time (for some reason I can totally see you on Arrested Development). I recently saw an episode of Almost Human and was a bit upset that Michael Eklund was once again cast as as a creepy maniac; then i realized that it's actually somewhat of a thing because at least he's getting work. I think they probably had something going all along? Surely there must be SOMEBODY left who needs some killing, or some killing done for them. Well, /u/Velorium_Camper seems to forget that James Avery was also The Shredder, arch nemesis to the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Two big thumbs up for Peter O' Toole, he is a legend! I have another question....because you are were on Fresh Prince for many years, did you find you missed out on a lot because of it? I assume you had a very busy schedule between learning lines, rehearsals and tapings, and very little time for anything else. I'm sure I did, I was dedicated to the show, I was there for six years, five days a week, I mean, it was my job. How did your career develop after Fresh Prince of Bel Air?We see each other whenever there's a big occasion, and we try to see each other as often as we can. Because as much as I like to think I'm not like Hilary, it's true.And sure, I'd do another show, if it was right! Looking at your colleagues from Fresh Prince, who was the actor most like their character? Connected, but a little different: do you think it is possible to play a character without bringing anything of your true self into it? My dad always teases me that I was able to do that character because she lives in me somewhere. I've straightened it and I straightened it on the show quite a bit during some seasons, and quite honestly, I don't think I look right with it straightened.We went three seasons with one Aunt Viv, three with the other, obviously it was not a deal breaker for audiences ultimately. she looks a lot better in season 4 after she cuts her hair. And one day it became "Dara can fit a whole orange in her mouth." Will thought he'd try it himself. I don't remember how he removed it, it was so funny and I was laughing so hard.He shoved a whole orange in his mouth, a WHOLE ORANGE, peel and all, the look of satisfaction when he pushed the last of the orange in lasted for a millisecond and was replaced by terror when he realized he didn't know how to take it out. I remember when he had to do that scene, he spoke to me about it ahead of time, and he particularly spoke with James Avery (aka Uncle Phil) who gave him advice on how to approach the scene.
