ONE GOOD way to remember the late James Avery is by watching this clip of him acting alongside Will Smith in The Fresh Prince.

Avery, who passed away on New Year's Eve following complications from heart surgery, gives an emotionally poignant supporting role to the brilliant Smith, who used the 1990s series to hit the big time.

Alfonso Ribeiro, who portrayed Carlton, Uncle Phil’s son in the show, took to Facebook to pay his respects to the late actor.

Ribeiro said: “The world has lost a truly special man. I am very saddened to say that James Avery has passed.

"Even though he played my father on TV, he was a wonderful father figure to me in life. He will be deeply missed.”
