Halle Berry tweets to Halle Bailey amid ‘Little Mermaid’ confusion

Bailey is the 19-year-old star who’s half of the music duo Chloe x Halle with her sister.

The announcement left some fans’ heads spinning, thinking that “Catwoman” star Berry was in the film, also starring Awkwafina and Melissa McCarthy.

Berry posted in a tweet to Bailey: “Thrilled for you!”
I’ll reluctantly admit that, upon reading up on the casting for Rob Marshall’s live-action remake of The Little Mermaid, I was initially confused. Convinced that I’d read it incorrectly, I re-read the news and understood: Ariel is to be played by young actress Halle Bailey, not veteran star Halle Berry. The two names share initials and are close enough phonetically to cause confusion.

Halle Bailey herself, however, was understandably ecstatic. This is, after all, an incredible opportunity, one any young actress would kill to score. Considering rising star Zendaya was rumored to star in the remake, Bailey is undoubtedly thankful that Disney was willing to take a chance on a lesser-known actress. And, as it turns out, so is Halle Berry.
