Will Smith virtually reunited the cast of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air this week to reflect on the impact the series had on television and their own lives. The reunion featured the show's main cast including Alfonso Ribeiro (Carlton Banks), DJ Jazzy Jeff (Jazz), Tatyana Ali (Ashley Banks), Karyn Parsons (Hilary Banks), Daphne Maxwell Reid (Aunt Vivian), and Joseph Marcell (Geoffrey).
During their two-part reunion episode—which also acted as the finale for Will Smith's Snapchat series, Will From Home — the cast got emotional while watching a tribute to the late James Avery who played the beloved Uncle Phil. You could see how much of a deep impact Avery had on all the cast members, as they all struggled to keep it together while watching the moments they each shared with him. Smith also shared the moment on Instagram, showing even more respect to the late actor and friend.
And just as the Fresh Prince cast grew up with Avery and Uncle Phil, so did many of its longtime fans, as evidenced by their reaction on social media.
