Juggling two careers at once is an extremely tough job. It is not everyone’s cup of tea to handle the work on both sides. However, some celebrities do it with grace and Will Smith is one of them. Another rising star is the Bel-Air actor, Coco Jones. She shared her feelings about working with the original Fresh Prince on the show.

Coco Jones stars in the dramatic reimagined version of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. The Emancipation actor, who played the Fresh Prince originally, is now the producer of Bel-Air, the new series. In her interview with Insider, Jones opened up about her experience of working with the Fresh Prince. Bel-Air’s second season aired in February and might just get the third season as well.
