Bella Murphy, daughter of Eddie Murphy, makes her film debut in Coming 2 America with a very fitting role: She plays Princess Omma, the daughter of King Akeem Joffer, the iconic character played by her dad.
Yahoo Entertainment recently spoke with Murphy about how she landed the role.
"Originally I asked to be an extra," she said, mentioning that a family rule forbids showbiz work until the age of 18. But her dad ended up bending that rule a tad.
"I think he just saw how passionate I really was about it and was like, 'I'm going to let you audition for the princess if you want,'" she recalled. "Which of course I took because I wanted to do it."
