It was super fun. I laughed a lot and got to do a lot of running around in the Black Box theater. It was really cool that I got to do both and really get into the mindset of Simba. At the press conference after the movie and even at the premiere, the whole cast was treating me like we were old friends. It was awesome. I had actually met Donald Glover before when he and I performed together at the Grammy Awards, so its as such a coincidence being cast as Simba. One of the best things he told me to do was to make the role my own. Having other projects and working with Donald Glover at the Grammy Awards prepared me for enjoying a huge moment, like being Simba. And just in general, feeling more confident and getting to know other young ones who are out there doing their thing.
