Will Smith's daughter Willow to make TV debut on Nickelodeon's 'True Jackson'

Posted on

Will-Smith-daughter_l Will Smith’s daughter Willow, who appeared opposite her dad in I Am Legend and played Countee Garby in Kit Kittredge: An American Girl, will make her small-screen debut in July opposite Keke Palmer in Nickelodeon’s True Jackson, VP. Smith, 8, will play a younger version of True (Palmer), a 15 year old who is the vice president of a major fashion company. Smith taped the episode last month.

“Since I have two daughters, I’ve seen Kit Kittredge easily 100 times,” explains executive producer Andy Gordon. “While writing the finale, there seemed to be a moment that would work as a flashback to young True, and I immediately flashed on Willow. She is so adorable, I can’t imagine we won’t use her in the coming season.”
