The young ladies are also entertainment bosses in their own right and are helping change the face of Black girls representation in Hollywood. Marsai recently made history as the youngest executive producer with her film Little and Nico (Thandie Newton’s daughter) makes her film debut in Disney’s Dumbo.

Inside, they talk about growing up on set, finding their voices and picking roles that matter.
