Where Are They Now? Kids From a Few of Our Favorite Black TV Shows

We’ve done our share of child star stories in the past, but we usually go searching for kids from obscure movies who literally go missing off of the face of the earth. Today, I decided to do a little research on a few kids from some of my favorite black sitcoms (and a drama) over the past few years, and see what they have been up to. From silly but smart comedies like “Everybody Hates Chris” to dramatic and thought-provoking shows like “The Wire,” these young stars were some of my favorites in their respective programs. Be prepared to click per the usual.

    The one who played chris on Every Body Hates Chris looks a lil bit like Dr. Dre son that died, and the one who played Bernie Mac nephew went from cute, to iffy looking.

  • kameria

    It’s disappointing that these actors with obvious potential all want to become “rappers”.

    • Cinnamon71

      I agree. They need to use some of that money they made and invest in a college education and/or a business. We have more than enough so-called “rappers” already…smh

    I was in a couple stage plays with Maestro when he was about 5 or 6. He had so much energy! He would run on the stage during cast introductions, rip his little shirt off and dance. Lol it was too cute. It’s good to see him all grown up and doing well.

  • Treacle234

    Damn, these former child stars grew up really nicely.

    • Daniel

      “Rudy” form The Cosby Show takes the cake, though.

  • allie1234

    Do Parker McKenna Posey have a child? Some websites say she has a son.

  • quest

    • Lisa

  • oh gawd i feel very old looking at these children especially the hughley kids and everyone hates chris. i wish them all luck . i hope the parents saved some of the money for college. got to give them some kind of direction and hope .

  • Korey

    Wait… The Wire was a sitcom?

    • Victoria Uwumarogie

      Ha! I knew someone was going to say something. The slideshow was initially going to be just comedies but we decided to add the Wire at the end and forgot to change the title. It’s all good now 🙂

    • Tini Boyd
