Young actress Storm Reid vaulted from minor roles in features like "12 Years a Slave" (2013) to the lead opposite Oprah Winfrey and Reese Witherspoon in "A Wrinkle in Time" (2018). Born July 1, 2003 in Atlanta, Georgia, Reid made her screen debut at the age of three in a television commercial and soon began booking roles in short films and TV features before she had turned 10 years of age. Her first major film role was in Steve McQueen's powerful "12 Years a Slave" (2013) as Emily, a young girl sold into sexual bondage. The attention afforded to the drama led to guest appearances on television series, including "NCIS: Los Angeles" (CBS, 2009- ) and in independent features films like "Sleight" (2016). Reid's career breakout came that same year when she was announced to play Meg Murry, the heroine of "A Wrinkle in Time," director Ava DuVernay's adaptation of the beloved Madeleine L'Engle fantasy for young readers.
