China Anne McClain Says Uma Helped Her Prepare for 'Black Lightning' Role

China Anne McClain Says Uma Helped Her Prepare for 'Black Lightning' Role

China Anne McClain won our hearts all over again as Uma in Descendants 2, which premiered last weekend.

The actress, who may or may not return for a third movie (should there be one), admitted that playing Uma helped her in her new series, Black Lightning.

“Uma definitely helped me tap into that same energy because to play a villain and it’s on the opposite side of the coin, you need that power, you need that same energy,” she told J-14 about how the two roles connected for her.

China adds, “[Uma] for sure helped, and it’s just really cool to be able to play a superhero over here and a supervillain over there. I’m so excited!”

Black Lighting will premiere in 2018 on The CW.
