Parsons became a huge star because of her role as Hilary Banks in The Fresh Prince of Bel Air. She became one of the pin-up girls of the decade and even Will Smith admitted he had a massive crush on her. Parsons had a minor movie career after Fresh Prince finished but she quickly turned to normal jobs.
These days, Parsons is a committed activist and a writer. Her main interest is ensuring that everybody has access to education and that’s why she targets young black children. It’s a noble cause and one that she passionately pursues. Parsons’ last TV appearance was in 2002 so it’s clear what she cares about now (via WGCU).
