Born to a family of entertainment industry stalwarts, Alexis Fields’ journey has seen her transition from the small screen to the silver screen, and now into a new professional arena altogether. Let’s dive into the life and career of the actress to discover where she stands today!
Alexis is the younger sister of actress Kim Fields and daughter of director and actress Chip Fields. Starting her acting journey in 1993, she first caught critics’ attention with her role as 11-year-old Sheila Hendricks in the FOX series ‘Roc.’ The following year, she added another credit to her career, portraying Nicole Wilson on ‘The Secret World of Alex Mack.’
Fields’ career took another step forward in 1998 when she joined the cast of ‘Sister, Sister.’ Around the same time, she graced our screens as Sharla Morrison on ‘Kenan & Kel,’ a role that would etch her name in the hearts of the fans of the series.
Alexis continued to expand her repertoire, appearing regularly on ‘Moesha’ and making her major film debut as Monique Harris in ‘House Party 4: Down to the Last Minute’ in 2001. In 2007, she shared the stage with her sister, Kim, in the play ‘Issues: We All Got ‘Em’ at the Memorial Auditorium, Progress Energy Center for the Performing Arts in Raleigh, North Carolina.
But what about Alexis Fields today? The actress shifted gears from 2019 to 2022, appearing in the TV series ‘All American’ as Denise Patterson. In a surprising career pivot, Fields also stepped away from acting to focus on a career in interior design.
Her personal life has been in the spotlight as well. In May 2022, Fields, a proud mother of two children, filed for divorce from her husband, Kevin Jackson after nearly 17 years of marriage. Fields cited ‘irreconcilable differences’ as the cause and is seeking joint custody of their children, in addition to spousal support.
Despite the split, Fields continues to feature photos of her ex-husband on her Instagram account, a clear signal that the two maintain a harmonious relationship for their children. Her social media presence also reveals a humorous side, as seen in her self-deprecating Twitter bio.
Fields also made headlines back in 2021 when she was involved in a social media feud with former Destiny’s Child member, Farrah Franklin. Franklin accused her of being a ‘homewrecker’ after Fields posted a seven-year-old video on her socials. Reportedly, the video featured Farrah and Kiely Williams having a standoff, comparing their musical accolades and the success of the girl groups they were once in.
As of the most recent reports, Fields has a net worth of $3 million. Whether she continues her career in interior design, makes a return to the stage or screen, or follows a completely new path, remains unknown for now.
