Fresh Prince of Bel Air, The - Lip-Synching
Throughout most of the first season, if you watch Will Smith when he is not the person speaking, he will still move his lips to the others lines. He was on Later (Duane Martin was the guest host that night) and they had put a montage of clips together that illustrated this point. But I have since watched the old reruns just for this purpose. As some people may know, the only acting experience Will had at the point that he was offered the show was in a few of his campy videos.--QueenRoyalty

it's probably just a nervous habit that will help him learn HIS lines!

I actually saw something on this. He said he did it because he was so pumped to be acting that he didn't want to mess it up so he learned all the lines in the early shows. The miming was there so he didn't miss a cue

I've been acting since I was about three and I have always had this problem. I've been told I have a photographic memory, ie I look at the script and almost instantly know my lines. The only drawback is that I tend to mouth other people's lines on stage because my brain also remembers the other lines. The trouble is, I don't actually know I'm doing it! I actually have to clamp my mouth shut to stop myself from doing this! Maybe Will also has a photographic memory - it's not unusual.
