China Anne McClain Chats Up 'Black Lightning' Character Jennifer Pierce

China Anne McClain sits down for an intro to her character Jennifer Pierce on Black Lightning.

The 19-year-old actress and singer plays the daughter of Black Lightning and tends to get in trouble, as any normal teenager would.

“She’s still growing up, she’s still getting to know herself. She’s only 16 years old, so she’s getting in to a little bit of trouble,” China said. “Anissa, her older sister is very motherly. She just wants to make sure [Jennifer] doesn’t go through the things that you know, she went through. Anissa is just very protective over her.”

“I knew very quickly that we were going to be able to play a family easily,” she added about their chemistry. “I connected with everybody. Nafeesa, I connected with before we even got on set, like in our screen test, we were like this. We stepped on set and we were all laughing and joking around. They had to be like, “Guys, guys, focus.’”
