Marsai is definitely ahead of majority of her peers and superiors when her achievements in Hollywood are spoken about.

The 16 year old recently took home two NAACP image awards for her work on “Black-ish” and remains the world record holder for the youngest Hollywood executive Producer for her film “Little”, a feat she achieved at the age of 14.

In an interview with Hollywood reporter, Marsai discusses quite a lot, including the rule that guides pitching in her office. No “Black pain” !

“I don’t do no Black pain. If it’s Black pain I don’t go for it because there’s so many films and projects about that, so that’s not who I am.  I want to make sure that it is diverse and real in its own way.”

Speaking on what the award means to her Marsai said ” I have been to the Image Awards for quite a long time and I think just every single year, I feel so much love and support from everyone. These two awards, I mean, the best supporting actress in a comedy series, it has all my favorite people in it … Having amazing funny Black queens to be inspired by and being in the same category as them is so amazing and so inspiring, and I’m just honored just to be in a group of amazing women.

Then also the youth one, I mean, they’re my friends! And I love their work … It’s truly amazing and they inspire me as well to keep moving forward. It makes me feel more comfort knowing that it’s not just me running in the same lane, it’s a bunch of us trying to get to where we want to be. It’s amazing to be in that circle as well, and I’m grateful.”

Talking about her greatest takeaway from the previous year, Marsai says not to regret anything.
