To celebrate the release of A Wrinkle in Time on DVD and Blu-Ray, star Storm Reid sat down with EBONY to discuss the film, including the great privilege of connecting with and inspiring fans.
“I’m glad that I have the opportunity and the responsibility, that I get to inspire them and uplift them and empower them…little girls actually dressed up like Meg to go to school, and that was so amazing.”
She went on, “To be able to have a movie where this girl saves the world, but she’s not a princess…she doesn’t have super powers, she just uses her vulnerability and her mind.”
The 14-year-old also dished on picking up acting cues from co-stars Oprah Winfrey, Mindy Kaling and Reese Witherspoon. Check out the clip above.
