Tatyana Ali was just six years old when she made her television debut as a regular on Sesame Street. She also appeared on the popular talent show Star Search. At the age of 11, Ali got her big break when she landed the role of Ashely Banks on The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.

Ashley essentially grew up on the set, remaining one of the show’s leads throughout its six-season run. The actress took advantage of her launch into stardom by releasing her debut album shortly after the series finale. The 1998 album was certified gold and featured the hit “Daydreamin’.”
