Marsai Martin, 14-Year-Old ‘Black-ish’ Star, Is About to Become Hollywood’s Youngest Executive Producer


The 14-year-old Black-ish star is already earning acclaim for the first trailer from her upcoming re-imagining of Tom Hanks’ classic film, Big. And since the young actress is also a producer on the film, Martin is set to become the youngest EP in Hollywood.

In Little, a woman named Jordan Sanders (played by Regina Hall) is transformed by a curse back into her 13-year-old self (Martin), having to relive her younger years in the process.

And Martin — whose young Hollywood ranks will be joined by 14-year-old Stranger Things star, Millie Bobby Brown, who herself is producing and starring in a film franchise about Sherlock Holmes’ younger sister — has no plans for making this her only foray behind the camera.

“This is the first movie I have in front of the camera and behind the camera,” she told ET’s Courtney Tezeno before the movie had been sh-ot. “And it’s not gonna be the last.” As for the advice she received for the new responsibility? “Focus on your game,” Martin shared.
