Storm Reid, will soon take the world by Storm with her first leading role in Disney’s A Wrinkle in Time. Her parents named her perfectly, only 14 years old but already shaking things up in Hollywood. Storm Reid plays Meg Murry, the main character of “A Wrinkle in Time,” in Disney’s adaptation of the award-winning children’s book. She is co-starring alongside with Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon and Mindy Kaling, in which I did the interview with them in the previous blog here.

Reid has appeared in Disney’s Nicky, Ricky, Dicky & Dawn and 12 Years a Slave.She will also appear in the upcoming film Killing Winston Jones, which is set to premiere in 2018.

She is amazing. She actually reminds me of when Disney introduced Brandy (the singer) as Cinderella. When I was 12, I looked up to Brandy and it was beautiful to see a Disney princess as an African America at that time, which was in the 90s and I was 12. Dating myself a bit but Storm reminds me of Brandy in a way she will be a representation for all young girls who do not seem themselves as lead characters. Storm Reid did amazing as Meg Murry, and check out the interview to learn more about her and her film for A Wrinkle In Time.

Storm on what it means to be a multi-cultural heroine and role model for young girls

it means everything to me and it’s very empowering for me still as a young, little girl being able to represent the little girls that look like me and being able to give them hope and know that they can have any opportunity they wanna have and they can do anything no matter their big hair or their big nose, as people say, or their glasses or their skin tone. They can do anything. So, for me able to be that for them and be an inspiration and to uplift them and empower them in a time like this where everybody’s so divided and it’s so dark. It means a lot.

Storm dishes on the process on getting selected for the lead as Meg

Yeah, it was a long audition process. I think it took like a month to audition and then another month to find out when I booked it. But it was amazing process, and then the journey filming it, with it being my first lead role and shooting the movie — And shooting the movie for six months, it was different and it was a change for me even though I’ve been acting for 11 years. It was different, but I learned so much and I had the best time. And to be around such amazing, powerful women and people to kinda lift me up and empower me and we could do this together and share a screen with such talented people at the same time was really amazing.

Storm shares the importance of young girls having confidence and how her character Meg Murry embodies this

I think, young girls not to conform to what society wants you to be and what society thinks you should be or how you should look, because you’re perfect just the way you are. And you have Meg, who is doubtful about herself and doesn’t love herself at the time. And you have this perfect version of her with this straight hair and this crop top and all these lil’ trinkets and who is really pretty and is cute.

But Meg chooses herself over this perfect Meg, because she is realizing that she is enough and that she is worthy of being loved just the way she is. So, I feel like it was really fun to film, but it had a deeper message and I’m glad that I was able to kind of connect with that as a young teenage girl trying not to follow trends and trying to be unique and be myself. And also I feel like that will transcend to our audience, especially our young girls.

Storm’s biggest lesson she learned playing Meg Murry

I did learn that I am enough. And, of course, my mom taught me that and instilled that in me, and I’m pretty confident. But just being Meg and experiencing that and going through that journey with her where she doesn’t feel that way about herself and she has to embrace the light from within to become that, it really helped me do the same and really reassure that I was enough and that I am worthy of being loved, and I do have faults and challenges, but that can’t stop me.

So, I feel like that was the biggest lesson I learned, and I say that me and Meg grew up together, ’cause — or grew together, because Meg is growing through the journey and then I was her, and I was growing as Storm, as a person, as a teenager as well.

Storm express how it was working and learning with Oprah, Reese and Mindy

They’re all so great and I just learned that — I just learned from each and every one of them constant graciousness, because they are just so, so amazing and so empowering. And they’re these A List stars, but they don’t act like it. And they are so grounded and so humble. And I just love them. So, they’re just all so great and I’m glad that I have them in my corner to pour into me and just be around me, ’cause they’re amazing women.

A life quote that Oprah shared with her

Miss Oprah told me don’t waste energy on things you can’t change in life when you can be using that energy on something positive in your life.
