14-year-old actress Yara Shahidi has a big few days ahead of her. The youngster’s new show black-ish premieres on Wednesday night followed by Thursday’s premiere of Scandal.
During our recent chat with the Young Olivia Pope, we tried to get the scoop on what we can expect this season of the Shonda Rhimes creation, but the actress remained relatively tight lipped. “I’m sorry, but I can’t tell you anything either way. There would be no scandal if I told you,” she told us. Later revealing that “there is going to be a lot poppin off this season.”
The good news is, the teen didn’t hold back while talking about her new sitcom. “I’m Zoey, I’m the oldest Johnson child. I’m smart, popular and I’m very consumed by phone, so I’m always on Instagram, tweeting, taking selfies, talking to friends. There’s always something going on,” the 14-year-old said.
As for the definition of black-ish, (in case you were wondering) Yara explains that it’s about having a piece of Black culture in you. “I’m half Persian and half Black, so I’m Black-ish in a very literal sense,” she laughed. “I love J Cole, N Sync, Hip Hop, Jazz and I still memorize N Sync lyrics.”
Be sure to tune into black-ish on Wednesday night, at 9:30/8:30 central.
