Ross Bagley is a former American actor and comedian famously known for playing the role of Nicky Banks in the NBC show, The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, which aired from September 1990 to May 1996. Many had expected the child actor to grow into a Hollywood star; however, this didn’t happen as he went under the radar as he became older. Bagley now works as a licensed real estate agent and sells homes in the Los Angeles area.
Although he is no longer in the acting scene, Bagley is mostly remembered as a child actor during the mid-1990s and for playing Nicholas “Nicky” Banks in the popular NBC series. He was introduced towards the end of the third season of the show which aired for six seasons, spewing a total of 148 episodes. Ross wasted no time in endearing himself to viewers of the series which had acquired a cult following.
Playing Will Smith’s cousin on the series, the fact that he was a kid who brought some refreshing comic to the storyline had a lot of people betting that he would grow up to become a prominent performer in the competitive industry. This has not happened as much hasn’t been from the child actor since the show which remains his most notable work as an actor.

Ross Bagley became famous when he was a child and disappeared from the limelight as he got older. Because of this, a lot of facts about his family background and upbringing are yet to be uncovered. Nonetheless, anyone with half an eye could tell he is of African American persuasion.
Nothing is known about his father, not even his name, but his mother is Mary Bagley and he isn’t her only child. Joss was raised alongside two younger sisters named Tiffany and Danielle. Some reports have it that Ross was born and raised in Los Angeles, California, but others have insisted that it was in Wisconsin Dells, Wisconsin, that he was born.
Whatever be the case, he is a citizen of the United States of America. Similarly, there has been some confusion about his age. While it has been claimed in some quarters that he was born on the 22nd of February 1993, we can confirm that his real date of birth was on the 5th of December 1988.
The former child actor is college-educated. From what we gathered, he graduated from high school in the 2000s and proceeded to California State University, Northridge. At the public university located in the Northridge neighborhood of Los Angeles, California, he obtained a degree in Cinema & Televisions Arts. It was sometime in November 2012 that he graduated from the institution.
At What Age Did Ross Bagley Start Acting?
Ross Bageky started acting when he was only four years old.
The actor began his career working with Will Smith on The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. He was seen in no fewer than 48 episodes of the highly successful sitcom; this was between 1994 and 1996.
After the series, he was seen in other productions, notably, the 1996 blockbuster, Independence Day. He played Dylan Dubrow Hiller, the stepson of Will Smith’s character in the science fiction action film. As fate would have it, he didn’t get to reprise the role in the sequel that came two decades later, Independence Day: Resurgence.
It was Jessie Usher that played Dylan in the sequel. Among other things, Ross Bagley was probably not considered for reprising the role because much had not been heard of him since the first installment of the movie.
