Biography

Kim Fields gained a tiny place in pop culture history as the spry (if eventually pudgy) know-it-all Tootie, one of the mischevious school girls in the improbably longrunning sitcom "The Facts of Life" (NBC, 1979-1988). Unlike many child performers, Fields made an effortless transition to adult roles and became credible playing a confident young professional. The sexier, more elegant Fields emerged first in a series of TV ads for Slimfast and later on "Living Single" (Fox 1993-97), where she co-starred with formidable rap goddess Queen Latifah playing young professional women sharing living quarters and complicated love lives.
