Storm Reid Wants To Inspire Girls Just Like Her With New Movie 'A Wrinkle In Time'

Storm Reid is about to take over the big screen world, so we all better pay attention.

The actress will first be starring in A Wrinkle in Time, coming to theaters in March next year.

Speaking with EW, Storm opened up about about what she really loves about playing Meg Murry.

“It means everything to be a girl of color and play Meg Murry because Meg Murry is, in the books, a Caucasian little girl,” she shared.

Storm adds, “It’s just surreal because I get to empower other little African-American girls around the world and say that you can be a superhero and you rock and you can conquer the world and you are beautiful just the way you are and your flaws are nothing and you’re awesome. It feels really good to be able to inspire not only little girls [but] everyone.”

And about working with with director Ava DuVernay: “She’s incredible, and she’s so hands-on.”

“She doesn’t just want the movie to be great — she wants everything to be great. She wants to make the crew feel comfortable [and] the cast. So whatever she needs to do, she’s going to make it happen. She’s just a superwoman of directing.”
