Among the cast of 'Black Panther' is a 91-year-old Atlanta actress

The biggest movie out right now was filmed right here in Atlanta and among the stars is a local woman who got ready for her acting closeup at age 88.

Now, 91, Dorothy Steel has a handful of credits but Marvel's newest blockbuster, 'Black Panther,' is her latest and first big feature film. 

In it, she plays a tribe leader in the fictional land of Wakanda.

“It was just amazing, it truly was,” Steel told Channel 2's Nefertiti Jaquez

The film has been a record-breaking success and pop culture phenomenon. The film grossed $192 million for the three-day weekend and up to $218 million for the four-day Presidents Day weekend, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

“If anyone would have told me I would be an actor, I would’ve said you got to be out of your mind,” Steel said.

Steel said she sent her audition tape when Marvel called her last year. 

“We sent it in and an hour later they said, "Who is that old lady? We want her,'" she recalled. 

Steel ended up landing the part of the merchant tribal elder who advises the King of Wakanda played by lead actor Chadwick Boseman.

"Chadwick the King. Every day, he would make sure if I was on the set, he would come by and make sure he gave me a big old hug and kiss,” Steel said. 

Steel said she became the “grandmother” on the set of 'Black Panther,' which she said is not just a movie but a movement.

“We were one big melting pot of black people and we knew we were doing something that had never been done before. Ya know?" she said. 

Steel doesn’t just think the blockbuster hit is breaking records for its push for representation, but also because of its female heroes. She said the women of Wakanda rule 'Black Panther.'

"We have power and it’s time for us to step up and take over. That’s what we have to do and take over," she said.
