Ashley Banks is the daughter of Philip and Vivian Banks, and the cousin of Will. She was portrayed by Tatyana Ali.
Ashley looked up to Will as a big brother and spent much time following him in her younger days. As Ashley got older, she started becoming more rebellious. She dropped out of private school and secretly attended public high school until Will found out and tried to masquerade as her father when her teacher wanted to see her parents. The plot failed and Ashley's parents eventually found out, but they allowed her to continue attending public school.
Ashley became a one-hit wonder with a hit song "Make Up Your Mind" in the show's 5th season premiere, "What's Will Got to Do With It?" Ashley later aspires to become a model after being discovered while working at a hot dog stand at a food court.
In the series finale, it is revealed that Ashley decides to attend a performing arts school in New York. When Hilary finds out her talk show is relocating to New York, the girls decide to live together.
