Take a look at Sarah Shahi discussing her role in the film below.
“Today is my first day filming #blackadam. I was cast in this role a year ago. I’ve had ups, downs, lefts and rights. They all led me here. Very proud to represent my fellow middle eastern brothers and sisters as Adrianna. Let’s continue to lift each other up as we tell each other’s stories. Human stories. Connecting stories. Stories we all have inside of us.”
