15 year old actress Storm Reid went to prom yesterday - with her good friend and fellow actress Yara Shahidi's brother.

Yara's bro Sayeed, 16, has been crushing on Storm for a while now. He finally garnered up the courage to ask her to prom, with the help of his big sis Yara.

“After big sister FaceTime consultations, conversations with his homies and knowing what would make her smile, Sayeed SURPRISED Storm [Reid] with the cutest promposal,” Yara captioned a snap of the pair.

Sayeed asked Storm with a personalized poster board featuring drawings and photos of the two of them. The poster read, "Storms are rare in LA, I'm lucky I found one." In her post, Storm wrote, "He's just the absolute sweetest. Saturday can't come fast enough." It seems the two have actually been friends for years, and even attended their homecoming together in 2017. While Yara and Storm haven't costarred in anything just yet, they also seem to be friendly, and have attended many events and red carpets together. We can only assume she put in a good word.


Storm said yes, and prom was last night. Here is a pic of the two young lovebirds:


Storm is best known for playing the leading role in the fantasy film A Wrinkle in Time. She starred alongside actresses Oprah Winfrey and Meg Murry in that film. 

Storm will also star as the lead role in a new HBO series called Euphoria- which is based on the Israeli series of the same name created by Ron Leshem, Daphna Levin, and Tmira Yardeni, that is set to premiere on HBO on June 16, 2019.
