Independence Day star Ross Bagley is unrecognisable 26 years after playing Will Smith’s stepson in hit movie | The Sun

INDEPENDENCE Day star Ross Bagley is totally unrecognisable from his character Dylan Dubrow 26 years after the hit film came out.

The actor rose to fame alongside co-star Will Smith in The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air – playing Nicholas 'Nikcy' Banks throughout the 1990s.

Ross, 34, was just a child when he starred in the hit move Independence Day in 1996, playing the step-son of main star Will, 54.

Then an eight-year-old, Ross was seen with an oversized backwards cap throughout the film, often throwing sweet doe-eyed looks at the camera.

The cute youngster is now all grown up, and looks completely different from his acting days, with an impressive moustache and beard.

Frequently posting to social media from Fresh Prince reunions and meet ups, Ross describes himself as a "realtor, actor and DJ".

Having also acted in  the classic kids’ caper The Little Rascals, as Buckwheat, Ross enjoyed a number of hit TV roles in his youth.

But the star moved away from the limelight and got behind the camera after studying for a degree in cinema at California State University.

He has since had cameo roles in Gnome Alone with Vernon Troyer, and two upcoming films, Dead Ringer and Gilded Cage.

In the reboot of Fresh Prince, he was replaced by actor Jessie Usher, who plays the grown-up version of his character Dylan.
