Yaaaaasssss Queen!! Last year the teen actor became the youngest executive producer in Hollywood. Marsai won four awards at the NAACP dinner held in Hollywood, CA. On Friday night she received: Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Motion picture, Outstanding Breakthrough Performance, Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series and Outstanding Performance by a Youth for ABC’s ‘Black-ish‘.
“I feel honored. I feel accepted and I feel seen, Martin said”. The talented, booming star founded a Los Angeles based production company at the age of 13, which creates compelling stories for television. Martin has been mentioned by Time Magazine in the “Most Influential Teens of 2018” segment.
Born in Plano, Texas, Marsai began acting before she could fully pronounce words. At the age of five, she landed her first national commercial appearing in a The Choice Hotel ad. In 2013, she relocated to Los Angeles, and in a little more than 100 days, secured a major national commercial campaign with Meineke. She’s been getting her coin ever since, being cast as the co-star in a number one network comedy on ABC, “Black-ish”, playing the character Diane Johnson.
Marsai recently performed in the 35th Anniversary Celebration of the Tony Award winning Musical “Dreamgirls” with the original stars (Sheryl Lee Ralph, Loretta Devine and Jennifer Holliday), singing the hit song “Move”. So the teen hitmaker is extremely busy being a boss. When asked what she wants to do when she grows up, her answer simply is, “To be a legend”.
