Prime Video recently released its latest original series, Swarm starring Dominique Fishback, and the fictional obsession in the show has turned into real-life adoration for the actor.
The show takes a deep dive into stan culture and the risks some people will take to prove their dedication to a celebrity.
At the forefront is Dominique's character Dre — a Houstonian who has an unhealthy infatuation with a singer named Ni'Jah (Nirine S. Brown). From maxing out credit cards to hunting down online trolls who bash the artist, Dre is willing to do whatever it takes to prove her loyalty to Ni'Jah.
Although not confirmed, the series draws obvious comparisons to Beyoncé and her fanbase, the Beyhive. From the name of the fictional fanbase "Swarm" to Ni'Jah getting bit — remember when Sanaa Lathan was rumored to have bitten Bey at a party? — several references in the series are loosely based on real-life events.
Dominique plays the character effortlessly, which is no surprise because she's been doing so with every role she gets. From the 1970s drama series The Deuce to the historical drama Judas and the Black Messiah, Dominique has been THAT GIRL!
Despite how delusional and deranged her character Dre can be, Dominique has a way of drawing viewers in and allowing them to empathize with her from time to time, which isn't as easy as it sounds...especially when it comes to her character's heinous ways.
But I wasn't the only one in awe of her performance. Fans took to Twitter to gush over Dominique, rave about her artistic range, and applaud her for injecting life into the show.
Here are just a few of those tweets:
I couldn't agree more, and I'm so glad Dominique is getting the praise she so rightfully deserves! Let the takeover begin!
