James Avery, star of 'The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air,' dies at 68
James Avery, star of 'The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air,' died at 68. This is a very sad moment for me personally. I loved this actor and I remember being in Junior High School and in High School watching that show 'The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air'. I remember how that show was so funny and it just lifted my spirits on a bad day. I will miss James Avery. I think that show provided a good example of a parent figure as James Avery. I am not sure how this actor was in real life, but based on his biography he sounds like someone who was very successful and admired by many. It is very sad the way he died.
You know it is so often that famous people die of some complications after surgery. The mother of Kanye West, Donda West, also died the same way. Sometimes I wonder if these things aren't done on purpose. I mean these are rich people who can afford the best medical care. Well, maybe their bodies were not in the best condition to excessive partying. Who knows?
I wonder how Will Smith and the other co-stars feel about the death of the beloved James Avery. I wonder if they miss him? He is a true legend and that show would have never been the same without him. He will be missed by many.
The death of James Avery makes me feel old. When certain stars from your childhood begin dying, you cannot help but think about your own mortality. I am not as old as this man is of course, but I still feel bad. I hope he is in a good place now.
