Actress Marasi Martin, now 16 years old, has set the record for the youngest Hollywood executive producer. When her film, “Little,” was released in April 2019, Martin was only 14 years old, making her the youngest person to be an executive producer. Martin will now be in the 2021 Guinness World Records book.

The film “Little” is about Jordan an overbearing boss who magically transforms into a child; she learns the errors of her ways while proving that kindness always wins. Not only did Martin produce the film, but she also starred in it; she had significant roles both in front and behind the camera. 

“To be able to create a film, star in it, be with your favorite stars, and actually seeing that entire experience was so amazing,” said Martin in a video interview posted by The Guinness World Record

Martin plays Diane’s role in the tv show “Blackish” and many other movies. This award adds to 16-year-old Martin’s lists of accomplishments. She wants to use her platform to encourage other girls like her. 

“I hope that all the young Black girls out there really see how a change can really happen, just by being yourself, just by any imagination you have that can run wild,” said Martin in the interview. As a young black girl herself, Martin can be the voice— the role model that other black girls don’t have, and she uses her platform to do that.
