In the movies, every leading lady has her leading man, right?
Sanaa Lathan had Omar Epps (Love & Basketball).
Christina Milian had Nick Cannon (Love Don’t Cost a Thing).
And Cassie had Terrence J (The Perfect Match).
Well it seems as if A Wrinkle in Time actress Storm Reid has found her leading boo offscreen in fellow actor Sayeed Shahidi (aka Yara’s little bro).
Storm took to Instagram to show off Sayeed’s #HoCoProPo, a perfect example of how to personalize an ask for your fellow actress, complete with a “leading lady” reference and photos of movie cameras, filmstrips, and a clapperboard.
Her caption read: “BEST. SURPRISE. EVER. Thank you @sayeedshahidi ❤😍. #igottafindadress”
Immediately, Storm’s comments blew up with love.
From director Ava Duvernay to Yara Shahidi to Yara’s Black-ish co-star, Marsai Martin, everyone is all the way here for the pairing. Marsai even went as far as to ‘ship the duo, so it’s possible that Storm and Sayeed are off the young Hollywood market.
Just friends or more, this homecoming proposal is everything.
