The actress and television producer made a name for herself in the acting arena when she was just in her teens, but has continued to have a long and successful career decades later.
Kim Fields got her big break in acting in one of the 1980's longest running sitcoms, The Facts of Life, as Tootie. Years later, she is still racking up the acting credits, with a total of 53 to her name by now.
She recently appeared in a photo on Kirk Franklin's Instagram in which she stood with the gospel musician and Jill Scott.
The trio were in attendance at the Essence Music Festival in New Orleans, Louisiana, and seemed to be all smiles as they snapped the shot.
Fields was wearing a khaki jacket, a necklace with a large silver drop, and a pair of silver hoop earrings. Her short vibrant red hair certainly made her stand out in the image.
Franklin stood between the two lovely ladies, in a white t-shirt, a wide brimmed black hat, and a blue bandana, wearing a couple of necklaces around his neck.
Scott had left her dark curly hair loose, and was wearing a nude v-neck shirt with a colorful jacket over it.
At Essence Music Festival, Fields made a special appearance at the Women In Harmony: A Celebration of Sisterhood luncheon at the NOPSI Hotel.
Fields got her first acting credit back in 1977 in the television Christmas movie Have I Got A Christmas For You.
Over the years, she also appeared in Living Single, Good Times, Mork & Mindy, Diff'rent Strokes, The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, and Kenan & Kel.
More recently. she starred in A Question Of Faith, appeared in What To Expect When You're Expecting, and For Better Or For Worse.
She has also recently written a book, Blessed Life. The book focuses on bringing out the best in people, and empowering everyone to find the positives in situations.
Fields was also asked about the possibility of a reboot for her two longest running shows, Facts Of Life and Living Single, but had nothing to say on the likelihood of either on happening.
