Tatyana Ali: Fresh Prince was special

Tatyana Ali "isn't bothered" that people only recognize her from her childhood role on The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.

The actress starred as Ashley Banks on the popular NBC sitcom, which also starred Will Smith. Tatyana currently plays Tyana Jones on sitcom Love That Girl! and has a recurring role as Roxanna on soap opera The Young and the Restless.

The 32-year-old doesn't mind that people only associate her with her part on The Fresh Prince.

"It doesn't bother me at all. It's really special to have been a part of something that meant so much to people. For it to be remembered so well, it's actually nice!" she smiled.

Tatyana didn't feel any pressure when she returned to TV after taking a break from the small screen.

Love That Girl! premiered last year, and Tatyana was thrilled to land the lead role.

"I was excited to do a sitcom again," she said in an interview with Juicy magazine.

"The one thing that was probably more nerve-wracking coming back to TV was having the lead role. It's a little more pressure... just a little!"
