To be able to play a character that brings people together, which is so necessary in today’s society, and so necessary for children and young adults to feel united. It’s so clearly demonstrated in the movies through Mama Rosa that it brings me joy because I feel now more than ever, we need to reiterate the importance of family, the importance of unity, the importance to come together, where to base, and not feel lost in a world and Shazam! is it that.”

But what can I say, it’s that I’ve always been into kids all my life, and I think that’s part of why I got this role because of the connection I have with kids. eu, so I bonded so much with that character. I was also inspired by my mother, who is a Mama Rose on steroids.

You see that on screen in the first film, and I think you will see it in the sequel as well I’m proud of my work for this reason because it resonates with so many people and continues to inspire me. I think these roles resonate in people’s hearts and stay with you. If I can doing that to people is a job well done.
