Dominique Fishback is happy to share the buzz.
In Prime Video’s Swarm, the actress plays Dre, a Houston woman obsessed with a world famous pop star who is not-so-subtlety based on Beyoncé and her passionate BeyHive fanbase. Dre’s idolatry begins to consume her life, becoming violent, dangerous and, ultimately, deadly. Very, very deadly.
As it turns out, the details of Dre’s shocking journey are thanks in large part to Malia Obama, as the former First Daughter worked in the Swarm writers’ room and is credited as a co-writer on episode five.
In an exclusive interview with E! News, Fishback said that Obama “came to set two or three times,” including during a pivotal moment early in Dre’s story.
“When we did the mall scene in the first episode, she was there for a while,” the Judas and the Black Messiah actress said. “We got to talk. We plan on meeting up and chatting and continuing to build our relationship.”
