Mykal-Michelle Harris who plays Rainbow Johnson’s young sister on ABC’s Black-ish spinoff Mixed-ish has to be the sassiest member of the Johnson clan. The 7-year-old sat down with Essence to talk about her character and working with such an amazing cast.
Just like her character, Santamonica Johnson, Mykal-Michelle is the youngest of her siblings. “She’s always playing around with her brother and sister, and always tries to fit in,” Mykal-Michelle said of Santamonica.
Santamonica also loves music and is extremely sassy, Mykal-Michelle said.
But unlike her character, the young star shared that she’s not into pageants. “I’ve never tried entering a pageant”.
Touching on her relationship with her co-stars, Mykal-Michelle said that they’re like her real family, especially because she’s the youngest child both on and off-screen.
“When I landed the Mixed-ish role, I cried and screamed – the whole house could hear me,” Mykal-Michelle said.
Before starring on Mixed-ish, Mykal-Michelle appeared on Big Little Lies as young Bonnie as well as The Affair.
