Karyn Parsons shared a sweet behind the scenes moment with her co-star, Tatyana Ali on the set of the 90s hit show the 'Fresh Prince of Bel-Air' in a rare throwback photo.


Hollywood has reintroduced audiences to many of their favorite shows with reboots such as "Fuller House," "The Twilight Zone" and "90210."

Topping the list among highly demanded reboots is the "Fresh Prince of Bel-Air," the 90s hit show set a new pace for black comedy and created some of the most iconic characters.

starred as the socialite and ditsy, Hilary Banks. With no word of a reboot insight of a reboot, fans might not get another look at her character's infamous shopping sprees or famous boyfriends.

However, she gave a nod to the show when she shared a throwback picture with Tatyana Ali. In her caption, she admitted, "can hardly wait to tackle and hug again!"


It is no surprise Karyn mentioned seeing her co-star again because they have maintained a close friendship over the years, and she considers the cast to be "like family" to her, she explained:

"We spent six years with each other. Afterward, we hung out together. We all wanted to be together."


As they have become wives and mothers, Karyn and Tatyana have taken their on-screen bond as sister off-screen, and occasionally bring their families together.

In 2014, Karyn told ABC News, that Tatyana often comes to visit her family, and she said her daughter adores her co-star. The love is mutual between the two, Tatyana commented on the post and expressed her excitement in seeing each other again.

In 2015, “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” celebrated its 25th anniversary. In an interview with ABC News Karyn reminisced on the success her television family created and explained:

"For the first season, all that magic was there and more. It wasn't hard to play family with these folks."


In May 2019, the cast reunited when they came out to support the show's breakout star, Will Smith, for the premiere of "Aladdin."

Karyn didn't make the big event. However, Alfonso Ribeiro and a very pregnant Tatyana walked the red carpet and posed for a few pictures with Will.
