It’s a damn shame “Black-ish” is ending, because it sounds like Michelle Obama could have a permanent role on the hit show … if you ask Marsai Martin, anyway.
The 17-year-old actress/director/entrepreneur and, as it turns out, interior designer … was beaming about getting to work with the former First Lady on the episode which aired last week. Thursday on “TMZ Live” she told us it had long been a dream of hers, and other cast members, to get Michelle on set.
It’s been said meeting your heroes can be disappointing, but Marsai says getting camera time with MO in the final season of “Black-ish” was a “surreal” dream come true.
Ya gotta see the joy on her face as she describes the experience, but we think she summed it up perfectly when she said it “felt like [Michelle] was an auntie” by the time they finished shooting the episode.
