Time for a blast to the past! The ‘90s was a time of great TV shows and the start to many child stars’ careers.
Many stars such as Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, Will Smith, Tia and Tamera Mowry, and the infamous cast of the loved TV show, Boy Meets World, all started in the 90s.
Twins Mary-Kate and Ashley started their career together playing the same character, Michelle Tanner, in “Full House.” The show started in 1987 when the twins were only a few months old starring in the sitcom and aired for eight seasons.
“Full House,” jump started the Olsen’s career. As they matured into their teens they started merchandising their image and becoming role models for young teens.
They starred in many of their own feature films together until the early 2000s.
In the past few years the twins have been labeled as fashion icons. They launched their couture fashion label in the mid 2000s.
The adored Olsen twins went from being child stars to now high-fashion, successful business women.
The Olsen’s weren’t the only twins taking over the industry. Tia and Tamera Mowry gained their fame from the ABC TV sitcom, “Sister, Sister,” which started in 1996.
After their time on “Sister, Sister,” the twins went back to school at Pepperdine University to study psychology while also landing small roles to maintain their acting career.
Recently in 2011, the Mowry twins landed a reality show on the Style Network, letting fans take a peek into their personal lives, following the twins day to day life; both being a mom and wife.
Will Smith is also among those successful ‘90s kids, where his career sky-rocketed after his hit TV series “Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.” The show lasted for six years starting in 1990 and was very popular for the catchy intro song.
After becoming a well-known actor, Smith starred in numerous blockbuster films such as “Pursuit of Happiness” and “Independence Day,” all grossing in over $100 million, making him a multi-Oscar and Grammy nominee.
Will Smith is still very successful in the film industry and cares for a family with child stars of his own, rising in both the music and film industry, taking after their dad.
No one can forget about the most popular TV show, “Boy Meets World.” It was a coming-of-age series filled with every day life lessons.
The show starred, Ben Savage as Cory, Danielle Fishel as Topanga, and Rider Strong as best friend Shawn.
The show aired for seven seasons on ABC until the early 2000s. The sitcom was among the most popular TV shows of the ‘90s.
After the ending of the show, each actor went their separate ways to accomplish their life goals.
Recently, it was announced that a spin-off of “Boy Meets World” was in store, called “Girl Meets World.” The series will exist in the same continuity of the original series including all of the original actors.
It will follow character Riley Matthews, the daughter of Cory and Topanga, as she navigates through the challenges of her early teenage years.
The spin-off has all “Boy Meets World” fans ecstatic and is to be aired next year in 2014.
Looking at then and now, the ‘90s created many memories and jump-started many careers.
