Independence Day star Ross Bagley is unrecognisable 25 years after playing Will Smith’s stepson in hit movie

INDEPENDENCE Day star Ross Bagley is totally unrecognisable from his character Dylan Dubrow 25 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, 33, was just a child when he starred in the hit move Independence Day in 1996, playing the step-son of main star Will, 53.

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.

These days Ross is focusing on his career as a real estate agent and even has an adorable son of his own, who he frequently posts to Instagram.

Ross isn't the only 90s star to look totally different nowadays.

Clueless star Alicia Silverstone looks unrecognisable 27 years after playing iconic character Cher Horowitz in the cult classic.

The 45-year-old actress became a style icon thanks to the hit 1995 movie in which she donned a series of incredible outfits as the teen character.

Fast forward nearly three decades later and Alicia is still rocking that effortlessly chic look as she stepped out in Los Angeles last month.

The Hollywood star was spotted taking her dog for a walk with a male friend in the Sherman Oaks neighbourhood.

The actress is currently working on the upcoming crime thriller feature, Reptile, which is based on a New England detective who is assigned to the case of a murdered real estate agent.

Alicia recently made headlines when she revealed last year that she takes baths with her son Bear, 10.

She has raised eyebrows with certain parenting methods in the past, and her latest admission is no exception. 

Alicia spoke to The New York Times about her isolation routine, and said she bathes in the same tub as son Bear.
