Deric McCabe is the energetic, super talented actor who plays Charles Wallace in “A Wrinkle in Time”. When we walked in the room, he was already there waiting to greet us with intense enthusiasm. As he called on each person, he would point and shout, “YOU!”
He is energy and enthusiasm personified.
Deric gave us a dope dance performance and dished on “Wrinkle”, Oprah, and his serious celeb crush.
Here are 5 things you need to know about Deric McCabe
He goes to regular school
I go to regular school. When my friends saw the movie, they just had a lot of questions like, how ‘Did you fly on a giant flying cabbage? What happened?’ And I told them everything.
He is a middle child & doesn’t like The Hulk
I have a two year old baby brother and a sister who is 12. I tell my baby brother that Hulk is bad. This is the reason. I have a crush on Scarlett Johansson, and Hulk and Scarlett Johansson just did a movie. I say “Hulk, bad, Scarlett Johansson, good.’
His favorite snack is popcorn
The first time I met Oprah they made this a really good popcorn. They put butter and some cheddar on it. We were doing stunt practice for the cave, and they said my popcorn down on a mat. Storm, Levi and I were taking our turns doing stunt practice and Oprah just started eating my popcorn. She was like, ‘Who’s popcorn is this? This is delicious.’
I was like ‘Oh, that’s me. Oprah’s eating my popcorn.’
He has 2 favorite things to do in his spare time.
I like to eat and cartwheel. I just cartwheel, cartwheel, cartwheel, cartwheel. I mean, I can demonstrate.
And then he DID demonstrate the cutest cartwheel I’ve ever seen.
He gets his positivity from his dad who also supported his acting career from the very start
I get my positivity from my dad. I was watching the Avengers with my dad and I just saw Scarlett Johansson and I was like oh, I want to do that, I want to meet her. So, then I was like, ‘I think I want to do acting.’ So, they put me into acting and now here I am
After our Q&A and dance party with Deric McCabe, we had the opportunity to screen “A Journey Through Time – Making of the movie” from the bonus features on “A Wrinkle in Time”. It showed all of the actors in their element, being exactly as Deric had described them.
Reese funny and talkative, Mindy sweet and playful, Oprah elegant and the embodiment of love. It showed an overview of the beautiful locations where “A Wrinkle in Time” was shot. My favorite part was when it showed how the cast filmed the scene with the Happy Medium. They were literally on see-saws in the air. I would have been quaking in my harness.

About the film:
More than 50 years after Madeleine L’Engle’s young adult novel “A Wrinkle in Time” was awarded the prestigious Newbery Medal, the big-screen retelling of this timeless classic takes audiences on a transformative journey, exquisitely illustrated through jaw-dropping visual effects, a stirring musical score and diverse, star-studded cast. Three celestial guides, Mrs. Which, Mrs. Whatsit and Mrs. Who, come to Earth to share their wisdom and love with struggling eighth-grader Meg Murry as she journeys across dimensions with classmate Calvin and younger brother Charles Wallace in search of her father, a world-renowned physicist who mysteriously disappeared four years ago.
A Wrinkle in Time is directed by Ava DuVernay from a screenplay by Jennifer Lee and Jeff Stockwell based upon the beloved novel by Madeleine L’Engle, and stars Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon, Mindy Kaling, Storm Reid, Levi Miller, Deric McCabe, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Michael Peña, Zach Galifianakis, and Chris Pine.
