The 16-year old 'Black-ish' star joins the record-breaking list of titleholders as the youngest Hollywood executive producer.
Before her victory, Martin broke her first world record back in 2019 as the youngest Hollywood executive producer to work on a major production.
Now, a year later, the 16-year-old has been officially declared the record-holder by the Guinness World Records on Monday (Nov. 30).
Growing up, the native Texan began her career acting in commercials at just 5 years old.
Fats-forwarding to more than a decade later, Martin is known for her comedic roles appearing in films alongside various powerhouse actors and actresses.
Now, developing her concepts for major films, Martin is showcasing that you can never be too young to achieve your goals.
"It feels crazy, honestly. A world record? That's insane." Martin said in a video of her certificate presentation.
Martin also shared a message that gives hope to anyone wanting to go after their dreams. "I hope that all the young Black girls out there really see how a change can really happen, just by being yourself, just by any imagination you have that can run wild,” Martin says. “You only live once so go for it."
The title-holding actress will appear in the Guinness World Records 2021 edition.
