Son Tells What It’s Like To Have “James Evans” As His Real Dad
Have you ever wondered what it was like to actually have “James” as your real Dad? John Amos has two children- a son and a daughter and his son, K.C. Amos, recently spoke out about what it was like to really grow up in the house with the man who was a T.V. father figure to so many of us.

“One word comes to mind when I think about him [my dad, John Amos] and his role in my life. Inspiration.
As a child, I recall spending moments watching television and seeing my dad enter the living room of his TV family and greet them for dinner. Then when he had days off and when we would be out having lunch off the set, people would come over and say he was their hero as a dad.
I saw that his role was more than a job; that he was actually helping people through his role as a strong father dedicated to mentoring his TV kids. There were life lessons learned in each weekly episode. It was amazing to watch the show become a hit series, changing the face of television sitcoms, particularly in terms of shows that depicted African-American families.
