These actresses are young and in charge! Skai Jackson, Marley Dias, and others are spilling the tea on social media, working in Hollywood, and more. Check out what these members of the up-and-coming Generation Z have to say!

Skai Jackson

Socia media and all of its bullying
“When I first got Instagram it was hard for me not to reply back to the hate because I was only nine [years old]. But I eventually learned that some people will hate no matter what you do, so if you think you are doing the right thing just keep on doing it! Do whatever makes you happy.”


Disney then and now
“I would say the difference between the Disney generations are the topics that are discussed on the shows. Also, a major change is that now our world revolves around social media.”

Marley Dias

On role models
“I don’t believe in having a role model. I think that when we set our minds and want to be like a specific person, we create unnecessary stress on ourselves to be perfect or just like them. I usually take attributes and qualities from people I admire and try to model those things. For example, I love Zendaya’s style and her boldness. I also love Lin-Manuel Miranda’s creativity and drive to be the best and of course, I just love Ava Duvernay’s ability to be both eclectic and relatable.”

Something top secret about Marley
“I wish people knew that I am a kid. I like to play and take naps and hug on my mommy. I also have lots of anxiety and nervousness when I perform. I never want my childhood and being young to be taken away; sometimes I think it is because more people know me now and I have more responsibilities. Being a kid is great and you only get to do it once. I want to get the most out of the wonderful years.”
