Music artist Saweetie makes the conversion to being an actress as she prepares to show her acting skills in “Grown-ish” this upcoming season. While interviewing with Entertainment Weekly, the California artist mentioned that she would be playing the role of a dominating artist named “Indigo” who’ll be a challenge for Yara Shahidi’s Zoey Johnson. She says, “I think Indigo is just a little bit of a bi*ch. She means well, but just sometimes she says the wrong things.”
Saweetie hopes to get more acting gigs or maybe even star in her own series. She says, “I could definitely see myself having a show like that or just doing more guest-star roles, or even doing a movie,” she continued. “I think it’s art. It’s fun to step outside my comfort zone and it allows me to just explore my creative side.”
