Claim to fame :As William 'Will' Smith on NBC's "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air" (1990-1996)

Born in Philadelphia in 1968, Willard Smith Junior was nicknamed "Prince" by a high school teacher in reference to his regal attitude and ability to talk his way out of difficult situations. Will added "Fresh" from street slang meaning "cool" when he teamed up with DJ Jazzy Jeff to form a rap duo in 1981. The two released their first single five years later, Girls Ain't Nothin' But Trouble, and in 1988 they won a Grammy for the album He's The DJ, I'm The Rapper. The ever-charming Will parlayed his success into a role on the career-making sitcom The Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air, which aired from 1991 to 1996.
In 1993, Will took his first step away from his squeaky clean "Fresh Prince" image to make the indie flick Six Degrees Of Separation, in whcih he plays a young gay hustler fooling an affluent white couple into believing he is Sidney Poitier's son. He more than held his own amid a cast of seasoned talent which included Donald Sutherland.
Will followed up with two back-to-back hits, sci-fi blockbuster Independence Day in 1996, and slick action-comedy Men In Black a year later. The latter inevitably led to a sequel, Men In Black II, released in 2002.
While basking in the immediate success of Men In Black, Will's personal life also shifted into a new gear. In 1997 he married Jada Pinkett, whom he had met on the set of The Fresh Prince. The couple have a son, Jaden, born the following year, and a daughter, Willow, who arrived in 2000.
With his A-list credentials cemented, Will has varied his feature film dance card, acting in 1998 thriller Enemy Of The State and playing a mystical golf caddy in Robert Redford's 2000 flick The Legend Of Bagger Vance. A key role came when he realised a long-held dream by portraying Muhammad Ali in the Michael Mann biopic Ali, for which he received his first Oscar nomination.
These days Will is one of Hollywood's most bankable leading men, with a trio of blockbusters - Bad Boys II, I, Robot and Hitch - under his belt. The actor still manages to combine the popcorn with the potent in his movie choices, however, mixing thought-provoking roles such as that of Chris Gardner in The Pursuit Of Happyness, for which he received his second Best Actor nomination, with lighter fare.
