Q&A: Yara Shahidi

Actress Yara Shahidi has starred in movies with Eddie Murphy, Tyler Perry and Jennifer Garner. But her most frequent co-star is her real-life brother Sayeed, 9. The duo, who have played on-screen siblings together several times, currently star as two of the "first children" in The First Family, a show about a fictional president and his family as they adjust to life in the White House. The show airs on Sundays in syndication on local stations. Yara told TFK that she loves working with Sayeed. "He’s super hilarious, and he makes the best time out of every moment," Yara says. Watch the video above to learn more about Yara. (Reporting and editing by Kelli Plasket / Videography by Stephanie Kraus)
