“Quantico” actress Yasmine Al Massri and “Fear the Walking Dead” actress Mercedes Mason added something new to their biographies Wednesday when they both became American citizens.
The performers were among roughly 6,600 people who were sworn in as citizens during ceremonies in downtown Los Angeles.
And the actresses couldn’t resist the temptation to get together for a selfie, which Al Massri posted on her Twitter account with the note, “Sorry (Donald Trump), we both just became American.”
Al Massri, 37, was born in Lebanon and studied in France before moving to the United States. She plays a dual role on “Quantico” as twin sisters Nimah and Raina Amin — who are in the FBI training program, but posing as one person.
She posted a separate picture from the ceremony, noting there were 3,500 people from 140 countries.
“They need safety and dignity. One day maybe we won’t have to leave home for those reasons,” she wrote.
Mason, 34, was born in Sweden but came to the United States at age 12.
“Guys I’m officially an American now!” she proclaimed on her Twitter and Instagram pages.
In addition to her role as Ofelia Salazar on “Fear the Walking Dead,” she has a recurring role as DEA Special Agent Talia del Campo on “NCIS: Los Angeles.”
