We had a chance to sit down with the star of the upcoming movie A Wrinkle In Time, Storm Reid, to talk about what it was like starring in a major motion picture. She was eloquent, fun, and cute all in one!
One of the things that really hit home with a lot of people was the idea that Storm is able to inspiration to lots of little girls out there! When asked how that feels, Storm had this to say:
It means everything to me and it’s very empowering for me still, as a young little girl, being able to represent the little girls that look like me. Being able to give them hope and know that they can have any opportunity they want to have, and they can do anything no matter their big hair or their big nose, as people say, or their glasses or their skin tone. They can do anything.
For me to be able to be that for them (little girls), and be an inspiration, to uplift them and empower them in a time like this where everybody’s so divided and it’s so dark. It means a lot. ~Storm Reid
Storm had a chance to work with some fantastic stars in this movie, including Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon, Mindy Kaling, and more. When asked what she learned from working with Oprah, Reese, and Mindy, she had this to say:
They are great and I learned from each and every one of them constant graciousness. They are so amazing and so empowering. They are these A-list stars, but they don’t act like it. They are so grounded and so humble.
Miss Oprah told me, ‘don’t waste energy on things you can’t change in life when you can be using that energy on something positive in your life.’ ~Storm Reid
