Marsai Martin has made history again by officially becoming the youngest Hollywood executive producer in history.
Martin nabbed the award for producing the Hollywood movie, “Little,” when she was just 14 years old — and she has just received her plaque, cementing her historic achievement.
“Y’all…I done broke a record. What an amazing honor. Who knew Little would be historic? Huge thanks to Kenya Barris, Tracy Oliver, Tina Gordon, Will Packer, James Lopez, and our WPP team … Thank you to our dope friends at Universal. Eric Baiers, Peter Cramer, Donna Langley, and my wonderful creators Momma & Daddy for making my dreams come true over and over again.”
The Guinness World Records shared a video of the trailblazing actress speaking about her accolade. “To be able to create a film, star in it, be with your favorite stars, and actually seeing that entire experience was so amazing,” she shared. “It was so fun and so exciting because with my mind, I always want to create things that make me happy and that I would actually imagine myself doing or being a part of. With those types of ideas that I have, it’s insane when it actually comes into fruition.”
And what a year it’s been!
In September, it was announced that Martin is developing a new unscripted series for television focused on the stories of trailblazing Black women with ITV America’s Sirens Media.
“Black women have always contributed to American culture,” Martin told The Hollywood Reporter at the time. “They’ve just never gotten the recognition. This show is a fun way of letting people know how dope we are.”
