Ross Bagley: Where Is He Now?
One of the weirdest continuity flubs in '90s TV — outside of Boy Meets World — has to be the time warp that is Nicholas Andrew Michael Shawn Nathan Wanya Banks (after Boyz II Men, duh), or Nicky for short, from Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. The youngest of the Banks children, born to Uncle Phil and Aunt Viv the Second, aged a couple of years in between Season 4 and Season 5… going straight from infant to preschool kid. Baby Nicky was played by a few different infants, but 5-year-old Nicky was played by just one dude: child actor Ross Bagley.
Ross was born in December 1988, meaning that he was just five when Fresh Prince Season 5 started in 1994 — the same year he played Buckwheat in The Little Rascals. He remained on the series until its finale in 1996, going on to star as Will Smith's girlfriend's son, Dylan, in Independence Day!
It's been nearly 20 years since we met the toddler version of Nicky, and Ross has grown up considerably since then. What does he look like now? Click through to find out!
