The 71-year-old threw some serious shade at his former castmates, John Amos, who played his father James Evans, Esther Rolle, who played his mother, Michael and Thelma played by Ralph Carter and Bern Nadette Stanis and Ja’Net DuBois, who played Willona.
According to Walker, in real-life, the cast wasn’t close at all and he didn’t speak to his TV mother and father when they left the set.
“I will honestly say, I don’t remember ever speaking a word to Ester the whole time she was there,” remembered Walker.
“I think the same basically goes for John. We talk more now but very, very little. We were never friends, never talked. If you said at that time ‘Call Esther and ask her about [something],’ I wouldn’t even have her number,” he added.” I couldn’t have called John. I wouldn’t have had his number … We never spoke to each other. Only on the set … We never did anything together.”
