Storm Reid, 14, portrays protagonist Meg Murry in Disney’s cinematic adaptation of Madeleine L’Engle’s classic novel, A Wrinkle in Time. As a biracial actress full of faith, having top billing among a star-studded cast is a very big deal for Reid, who got her first major break as Emily in the Academy Award-winning film “12 Years a Slave” in 2013.
“Ahhhhhh! A million words can’t express how I’m feeling right now,” Reid wrote on Instagram the day after the Los Angeles premiere of “A Wrinkle in Time.”
“Last night was so magical. This little brown girl’s dream came true last night. First of all, I’d like to thank God! Thank you for this opportunity. Thank you for letting me live out my dreams. Thank you for giving me the talents to share with the world and inspire my generation of young ‘change makers!’ I know that the best has yet to come and I know as long as I have faith of a mustard seed I know you’ll move mountains. ..”
