The -year-old Genius: Aretha actress opened up in her with Variety‘s “Just for Variety” podcast interview about the creative freedom she has for the vision of Blue Fairy.

Cynthia and her “hair and makeup team going over it. Terrell [Mullin], my makeup artist, is making eyelashes currently. I know that already it’s a different aesthetic, because it’s me — this bald-headed Black girl.”

While Cynthia is remaining mum on the movie and her character right now, she is excited to be joining other Black celebrities in iconic Disney roles.

“I’m really excited about it,” she says. “We don’t have very many Black fairies. I’m very proud to be joining the ranks with Yara Shahidi [playing Tinker Bell in Peter Pan] and I’m very proud we’re getting to join the ranks of Disney with Halle Bailey, who’s playing the Little Mermaid. It’s kind of awesome.”

Here’s who else will be part of the cast of Pinocchio
