Tumblr user exexexexexexex says: This clip from the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air episode “Papa’s Got a Brand New Excuse” is particularly difficult because of the severe reality of the emotions behind it. Will Smith’s own father left him and his mother when he was a child and, as legend has it, this scene had previously been differently scripted. However at the breaking point where his dad walks out, Will let out all his pent up feelings. James Avery who played Uncle Phil described it as the hardest scene he ever had to act, and it is incredibly difficult to watch, particularly if one has experienced parental abandonment themselves. Breaking point: 0:59. If you haven’t broken by 1:26, tsk!
