Shadow Spotlight: Marsai Martin

1.14.19

Hello creative peeps, Monday has come upon us. I almost couldn’t figure out what to do with Shadow Spotlight and then it hit me. Ms. Marsai Martin is in the spotlight and there is a valid reason. She’s only been in the world of LaLa Land for a minute, but she’s been making some big waves. Case in point…For the past few days, I caught a new trailer for a film titled Little. It stars Regina Hall, as Jordan Sanders, Issa Rae as April, and Martin as a young Jordan Sanders. 

As I watched the trailer Martin pretty much stole the show. If she looks familiar to you, that’s because she stars in ABC’s Blackish as Diane Johnson for which she received several award nominations. Other roles include Nina, An American Girl-Melody 1963: Love Has to Win, Elena of Avalor, and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt

She’s also the executive producer of Little, which at the age of 14, is the youngest person in Hollywood to hold that title! Martin’s career is already on fire and I’m interested in seeing what she’s up to in the future. 

Here’s the trailer to Little…

 

Black girl magic indeed! Enjoy your Monday, be blessed.
