Kim Fields: Early Life and Family

Fields are the daughter of Laverne “Chip” Fields, an actress and director who was born in Harlem, New York City. Alexis is her only older sibling. On the other side, because of her parent’s early divorce, she did not grow up with her father.

Fields attended Burbank High School in her earlier years and were able to participate in the school’s baseball team as well as several theatrical plays even though she became an actress at a young age. She continued her education at Pepperdine University, where she earned a degree in communications and cinema in 1990.

Professional Career

Fields’ career began when she was just five years old. Some of her early roles were in the sitcom “Baby, I’m Back” and Mrs. Butterworth’s pancake syrup commercial. Along with Janet Jackson, she also costarred in the television show “Good Times” and briefly featured on “Sesame Street.” Even as a young child, her early years as an actor helped launch her profession and increase her net worth.

When Fields joined the sitcom “The Facts of Life” in 1979 and played Dorothy “Tootsie” Ramsey, her career took off. Later, she returned to the role in its spin-off, “The Facts of Life,” after being cast in the sitcom “Diff’rent Strokes.” The latter centers on Edna Garrett, a housemother who takes care of seven girls at an all-girls school, including Fields, who plays Tootsie.

She became well-known thanks to the success of the show, aside from her braces and roller skates, for her wit, comedic timing, and catchphrase “We’re in trout-be!”

Fields also released two singles during “The Facts of Life” called “He Loves Me Not” and “Dear Michael,” both of which saw only modest popularity. She greatly benefited from the show’s continued airing until 1988 because it increased her riches.

Following the popularity of “The Facts of Life,” Fields decided to take a hiatus from acting and pursue a degree at Pepperdine University, where she also founded Victory Entertainment Inc., a production firm that specialized in producing movies, plays, and television shows.

Fields returned to performing after completing her education. After a brief time in “Fresh Prince of Bel-Air,” she co-starred with Queen Latifah in the sitcom “Living Single,” which, despite its brief run, helped introduce her to more serious parts and raised her net worth.
