Tatyana Ali Then and Now
Then: As Will’s youngest cousin, Ashley (well, before baby Nicky, of course), Tatyana Ali grew up right before our eyes. She went all the way from fighting bullies (“Back up! Back up! Mind your business, that’s all. Just mind your business”) to having her modeling career nearly ruined by Will and Carlton (“Will and Carlton are sorry!”).
Now: After embarking on a music career (her album Kiss the Sky came out in 1998), Tatyana earned a degree in African American history and government from Harvard University in 2002. As if that wasn’t enough, she continues to act on The Young and the Restless and a TV One series called Love That Girl. Recently, she scored a role on the upcoming BET series Second Generation Wayans. Looks like she got that glamorous career she always dreamed of, after all. (Yeah, we watched a lot of Fresh Prince back in the day.)
