Where Are They Now? Kids From a Few of Our Favorite Black TV Shows
My Wife & Kids
Parker McKenna Posey
Awwww! Who could forget the very cute Kady Kyle from “My Wife & Kids”? When the show started, she was literally a 6-year-old. With her head of curly hair and her great comedic timing, she held her own on the show with Damon Wayans and Tisha Campbell. Since then, the now 16-year-old did her share of modeling, specifically for the brand Justice. On top of that, she had a guest role on the show iCarly in Nickelodeon, was in the TV movie “Summer Camp,” as well as another TV movie called “Meet the Santas” and in the movie Alice Upside Down. She’s grown up fast!
Good ‘ol Franklin Aloysius Mumford. He was a wiz kid who taught Junior math, could play the piano like nobody’s business, and loved to tell jokes that would go over everyone’s heads. “Anywho…”
After the show, the 16-year-old had a recurring role on the NBC show “Heroes,” was in the movie The Lady in the Water, and most recently did a movie called Pizza Man in 2011. Though he was a baby genius on “My Wife & Kids,” he’s very intelligent in real life (I do declare, the first time I saw him he was showing off his talents on “Oprah”). The acclaimed pianist was accepted into Harvard and was to be part of the graduating class of 2015, but he took time off instead to catch up with family. There’s no word if he’s started, but it’s clear he’s got a good head on his shoulders and will go far.
