Everybody remembers Karyn Parsons who starred as the spoiled rich kid Hillary Banks on "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air," who seemed to care more about the superficial than substantial things.

However, in real life, Karyn Parsons is nothing like her famous '90s character, and in fact, has chosen a quiet life out of the spotlight to focus on her family. She married her husband Alexandre Rockwell in 2003, and together, have a daughter named Lana and a son named Nico.

TAKING AFTER HER MOM

Their daughter Lana has taken after her in many ways, and it's not just in the way she looks. She is also fond of acting, and has starred in numerous films like her dad's very own "Little Feet," "That is Circling All Round the Sun," and "Pete Small is Dead."

PURSUING HER ACTING CAREER

Now a teenager, Lana is absolutely gorgeous and still aspires to be a world-famous actress just like her mom once was. Of course, her parents have been extra supportive, especially with her dad being a film director himself.

Meanwhile, while her daughter is pursuing acting, Karyn has chosen a simpler path, and that is to invest her time in humanitarian work. She founded a non-profit organization called Sweet Blackberry, which tries to remember forgotten figures in the African-American culture.

TAKING A SIMPLER PATH

Karyn's company has produced illustrated shorts on "The Journey of Henry 'Box' Brown," "Garrett's Gift," and "Dancing in the Light: The Janet Collins Story." She is also producing her fourth on Bessie Coleman, the first Black woman to become a pilot.

While focused on a younger audience, these shorts were actually narrated by famous Hollywood actors and actresses like Alfre Woodard, Queen Latifah, and Chris Rock. Clearly, although she's chosen another path, the entertainment industry is still something she keeps close to heart and she uses it to inspire the younger generation.
