Nostalgia for the old television series "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air" reigns as BernNadette Stanis stands with her two ex-co stars for a picture. 

Taking to her official Instagram account, actress BernNadette Stanis posted a nostalgic throwback photo. In the snapshot, she sported a white smile in a rare picture with Will Smith and DJ Jazzy Jeff. 

The brown vintage color of the picture seems to amplify how old it is and, therefore, the remembrance exuding from it. The three look incredibly close and friendly as they all give genuine smiles, looking straight into the camera.

In the picture, Stanis stands right in the middle while the two men tower over her, but she doesn't seem to mind, seeming ecstatically happy as she holds on to her two companions. In the caption, she wrote

"✨✨ TBT Me and DJ Jazzy Jeff and The Fresh Prince.✨✨"

Jeff seems slightly more reluctant than the other two co-stars, his mouth turning down a little, but he still appears comfortable. Sporting glasses and a baggy shirt, his style screams the 1990's.



Smith, the ball's bell, looks cool and confident as always, sporting his signature "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air" haircut. Once again, his baggy clothes combined with the necklace and most likely expensive watch is a sign of the times.

Fans and followers flooded into the comment section, most of them gushing over how much they loved the photo and some of them referring to it as legendary. The number of likes was high as well, with the post pulling in just over 3000.



Smith and Jeff recently decided to take it up a notch and give lovers of "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air" an exclusive and virtual outing through the show's mansion. Although Smith is turning it into an Airbnb, he said the following when entering: 

“I know it’s supposed to be for other people, but I need this for myself.” 

Smith spoke about how this house was part of a show that helped his acting career take off. He expressed that it holds some very noteworthy memories for him while he was still acting on the series. 



Last year, the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air himself announced a series reunion. The show was set to be released mid-November, with the "Bad Boyz" actor sharing the trailer on his own YouTube channel. 

During the trailer, Smith jokingly expressed that no one would be ready for the reunion. It continued, with many actors on the show speaking about monumental experiences they had while filming the forever popular series. 


Following "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air," Smith went on to work in movies, including films such as "Men In Black," "Bad Boyz,"  and "Independence Day," to name a few. He also has an Academy Award nomination under his belt. 

This nomination was specifically for the role he played in the 2001 biopic "Ali." In the film, Smith played the legendary boxer Muhammad Ali, and although he was nominated for an award, the movie didn't do very well at the box office.
