Kim Fields posts pic of her look-alike mother who also starred in 'Good Times'
Kim Fields, known for her roles in “The Facts of Life” and “Living Single” is not the only talented member of her family. She recently posted photos of her with her momma to show their striking resemblance and close bond.
Celebritist was hovering over Kim Fields’ Instagram feed to see what she has been up to when we stumbled upon her Mother’s Day post. The actress and producer paused for a moment to celebrate her mother who looks so much like her.
The apple did not fall far from the tree as Fields’ mother is none other than Chip Fields, an actress, and director known for her role as the abusive mother of Janet Jackson’s character in the 1970s sitcom “Good Times.” Kim made an appearance on the sitcom which then gave her the courage to get on stage and start a lustrous career.
The 49-years-old beauty revealed last year on an interview with Fox News that she almost didn’t make it to the auditions of Living Single were it not for her mother.
“Landing the role of Tootie, I almost didn’t stay for the audition because I was very intimidated, quite honestly. I was a little girl, I was a little black girl, and I walked into this sea of television-ready white girls. The perfect blonde hair or brown eyes, blue eyes. And I just felt like, ‘I’m not supposed to be here.’ And my mother took me to the bathroom and she said, ‘Listen, don’t you let anything or anyone intimidate you, including your own mind.’”
She turned out to be the perfect fit for the show thanks to her bubbly personality. Her mother and sister Alexis, who’s also an actress, have been instrumental in her career and soberness in the industry.
“They supported me, let me cry on their shoulders when I was frustrated. When I was unsure when the waters just seemed to be so uncharted… And so for me, I didn’t want to be a statistic. I didn’t want to be a has-been. There was a little ego involved.”
After such support, Fields couldn’t more thankful to her mother and mentor.
