Sophie Okonedo loved working with Will Smith on new film After Earth - because she is a big fan of The Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air.

The acclaimed star of The Slap plays Will's wife in the upcoming sci-fi adventure flick from director M Night Shyamalan, which also stars Will's son Jaden.

"They don't really want me to talk about it at the moment but I had a fabulous time and I'm playing the wife of Will Smith so that was a real treat," she revealed at the TV Baftas.

"I'm a big fan because I love Fresh Prince and I watch it with my daughter so I was already a big fan and he's just really everything you imagine - enormously fun and generous and kind."

Sophie said of Jaden, 13, who plays her on-screen son: "He's gorgeous and a wonderful actor."

The film, which is also set to star Zoe Kravitz, follows a father and son (Will and Jaden) who explore an alien planet after a crash landing.
