Marsai Martin, 13-year old actor, singer, dancer and writer now add producer to her list of accomplishments. Currently bringing the laughs as ‘Diane Johnson’ on ABC’s hit-show ‘Black-Ish’, she’s the older yet sinister twin sibling. Martin’s character is not only brilliant but sarcastic, snarky and lacks a filter for her mouth which often leads her into trouble. Her acting career began at the age of 5 when she was immediately signed to the Kim Dawson Agency in Dallas, Texas. After appearing in several commercials, she moved to Los Angeles in 2013 and 100 days later secured a campaign with Meineke.
Martin holds her own next to an all-star cast of actors such as Anthony Anderson, Tracey Ellis-Ross, Lawrence Fishburne and Jennifer Lewis. Her skills have earned her two National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) Image Awards for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Comedy Series and Outstanding Performance by a Youth. While on break from ‘Black-Ish’, Martin performed in the 35th-anniversary celebration of the musical ‘ ‘Dreamgirls’ with Sheryl Lee Ralph, Loretta Devine and Jennifer Holiday. She also worked with Meagan Good in ‘How to Die Happy’, ‘Fun Mom’ and Amazon’s ‘An American Girl Story.’
