Tatyana Ali on working with Telma Hopkins, parenthood, and her bridging her music with her acting career

Tatyana Ali

Tatyana Ali, she of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air and The Young and The Restless fame, premiered her new Lifetime channel holiday movie over the weekend and tells us all about Christmas Hotel's plot and what brings her back to the genre, which has exploded in the past few years, working with Telma Hopkins, all while trying her best to not say "quid pro quo" when discussing the plot line. Ali, who works closely with March of Dimes, also tells how she shot much of the movie just weeks after having a new baby and mentions the importance of parents having support for when they go back to work. And as for music? She's still at it, but says she prefers to keep her music tied with her film projects these days.
