During her appearance on The Tonight Show, Yara opened up about the longest prank she ever pulled.

“I was trying to figure out something that would last long [to pull on my brother Sayeed], so one time I was on a walk with my brother and he saw a wood chip that looked like a mouse, and I was like, ‘Oh, that’s a collageon, Sayeed,’” she shared. “I just made up a word. I was like, ‘It’s something that falls from the sky that looks like an animal.’ ‘Cause I was like, the more specific you can get, the better.”

Yara adds that “for two years, he swore this was like a really fancy art term. And we also went to a decently small school, so I was the cool sixth grader who got all of the fourth graders to believe that this was a word.”

“I was well into middle school when they realized [it wasn't true],” she explained. “I was in the car with him and I was like, ‘Remember when you believed in the word collageon?’ And I didn’t realize that he still believed in it to that day, and I gave myself away.”

Yara Shahidi crashes Trevor Jackson‘s photo shoot at Build Series on Tuesday (January 14) in New York City.

The 19-year-old actress and the 23-year-old actor both went on the show, separately, to chat about the upcoming third season of their series grown-ish.

During Yara‘s interview, a fan asked her how she manages her career and going to college at the same time.

“I think, it doesn’t take a village, it takes a small country to make this work. I’m being so honest. If it does not take a continent at the least,” she answered. “I have a wonderful team of people, not only on my personal team, but on the grown-ish team themselves, who understand how important my school is to me. I appreciate the fact that I am able to have that life as my own private life, and also live this public college life for people.”

“It really does take a ton of people who appreciate and value the same things I do to make that work, because they didn’t have to,” Yara added.

FYI: Yara is wearing Ivy Park.
