Alfonso Ribeiro, best known for his role as Carlton Banks on The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, is also an established television director, actor and host, and voice-over artist. Alfonso made his television debut opposite Ricky Schroder in the long-running sitcom Silver Spoons, making him an instant teen idol. Starting his acting career at the age of 8, Alfonso landed his first starring role in the Broadway musical The Tap Dance Kid and was signed to famed music label Island Records. He became an overnight sensation, enamoring the likes of Michael Jackson, who enlisted Alfonso in the infamous Pepsi commercial.
