You don’t have to be a grownup to live out your dreams.
“The Florida Project” star Brooklynn Prince is directing a movie titled “Colours,” and she’s only 8 years old.
“My dream of directing started on The Florida Project,” the pint-sized actress shared on Instagram Thursday. “I loved watching Sean [Baker, director of ‘The Florida Project’] work and was inspired by his patience, vision, and creativity. Since then my dream was to become one of the youngest directors of all time.”
She continued, “Today my journey as a director begins. Thank you to my friend and mentor, Sean Baker for believing in me, and to the amazing crew and cast. I hope to make you all very proud. I can’t wait for the world to see ‘Colours.’”
Her mentor, Baker, shared his excitement for the project, tweeting Thursday, “Location scouting for @thebrooklynnk’s directorial debut….She writes, stars and directs and oh…she’s 8 years old.”
In response, Prince tweeted back, “This is beyond my wildest imagination and yet, here it is. So grateful for my friend and mentor.”
