Jasmine Guy net worth started to grow when she landed a role of a dancer on TV series Fame. Although this role was insignificant, it led her to more important parts. A breakthrough in her career came up 1987. That year the young dancer and actress was cast for A Different World. This television series focused on Southern belle Whitley Gilbert (portrayed by Jasmine ) and mathematics whiz Dwayne Wayne (Kadeem Hardison). As Jasmine has said during an interview for Essence, at the time they started filming this sitcom she had no idea how much influence she would have on black youth in America: she felt pretty isolated, spending most of the time on the set. However, this does not mean that the actress did not do everything she could to make Whitley as believable as possible – quote to the contrary, this was her main goal at the time. Although Jasmine did not predict it, the show actually had a huge influence on African American youth and school kids in general.

When asked what the funniest moment on the set was, the actress remembered the day she met Denzel Washington. It happened when they were filming an episode where Whitley celebrates her birthday lonely in her room, with a bottle of wine and a photo of Denzel pinned to her pillow. According to the script, while having a moment with the actor Whitley was supposed to be walked in on by her friends. But in reality the friend tapping on her shoulder was Denzel: “I freaked out! I thought I was seeing a ghost. I thought I concentrated so hard that he appeared“ the actress remembered.
