After reading about the various icons that made a transition in their career and their lives I was trying to think of someone who wasn’t mentioned. Will Smith came to my mind. He started his career as the Goofy Young boy on an extremely funny sitcom. He was known for his loud clothes and funny on screen comments. When I think of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, I think of the Neon green T-Shirts with zig zags and mis matched shorts. He was definitely a funny character and he played his part so well. Sometimes actors will get stuck with a “part” after trying to break into other areas. Mark Paul Gosselar for example I will always think of him as Zach Morris from Saved by the Bell no matter what type of role he is playing. I think Will Smith made a successful transition from his role on The Fresh Prince and is culturally accepted as an actor who can play serious roles as well as humorous ones.
