There were limited people on set, it was a closed set […] We were making a joke out of it, so it took all the nervousness away.”
Initially, Chloe’s role was expected to go to actress Dominique Fishback who’s also in the film. After hearing the story about Dre, Fishback immediately had her agents she wanted the role. However, Donald Glover convinced her to play the role of Marissa because she “needed to have a warm energy” and be “somebody that felt relatable and lovable and popular.” Chloe on the other hand connected to Dre and Marissa’s sisterhood because it reminded her of her relationship with her sister, Halle Bailey. While speaking of Donald Glover it’s important to mention he’s currently working on a new project with Malia Obama.
