Some of Laverne’s notable roles include her depiction of Lynetta Gordon in the sitcom “Good Times”, and she has also lent her talents to productions such as “Menace II Society”, a classic hood thriller.
Kim Fields, Alexis’s sister, is also a skilled thespian and director, who began acting at just eight years old. Kim has worked closely with movie mogul Tyler Perry for over a decade, and currently boasts over fifty acting credits, having appeared in critically acclaimed series such as “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” and “The Steve Harvey Show”.

We can’t tell you where Alexis studied, but Kim previously took a break from acting to attend the prestigious Christian Pepperdine University based in Malibu. Notable alumni include “Gossip Girl” actor Chance Crawford, Olympic gold medalist Sean Rooney, and Hall of Fame basketball player Dennis Johnson.
Alexis shares a close bond with her mother and sister; in 1984, the trio appeared in the fall quarter issue of Black Family magazine, and Chip and Kim also starred in an Ebony magazine shoot together in February 1986.
Alexis’s First Roles
Alexis first graced our screens in early 1992 as Kim in “Hangin’ with Mr. Cooper”, a family sitcom starring Mark Curry and Holly Robinson Peete amongst others. Alexis appeared in two episodes, and then joined the cast of “Roc” in the same year, interpreting Sheila Hendricks in the series centered around the trials and tribulations of a garbage man.
1994 was also a good year for Alexis, as she scored a part in her first TV movie “Last Days of Russell”, written and directed by Reginald Hudlin. She also worked alongside Steve Harvey in an episode of “Me and the Boys”, and joined the cast of “The Secret World of Alex Mack” until 1998. The latter series was nominated for several awards, and eventually won a 1996 Young Artists Award in the Best Performance by a Young Ensemble – Television category. One of Nickelodeon’s longest-running series, it was eventually pulled because child star and main character Larisa Oleynik was “burnt out” and wished to focus on high school.
