BBC interview kid Marion is now a bona fide internet star

6 min read

Sometimes a hero comes along when you least expect it to brighten your life and widen your horizons. Please enter, with tremendous swagger, Marion. Otherwise known as the adorable 4-year-old who barged into her dad’s very important interview on the BBC and made her entire family famous.

To recap, Professor Robert Kelly, an expert on East Asian relations was speaking about the impeachment of South Korea’s president when Marion triumphantly barged into his spare room/office, followed by her baby brother in his walker and then her heroic mum who slid into the room to yank the children away from the screen. It was very, very funny.

After the video went insanely viral the, frankly, adorable, family gave a few interviews to the press including one where Prof. Kelly described Marion being in a “hippity-hoppity mood’ when she made her small-screen debut as she’d just celebrated her birthday. 

To which all women then prayed that we too could have the confidence of a hippity-hoppity four-year-old, and also that she never loses her supreme cool.

It turns out our prayers have been answered because the family gifted us with another press conference, in which Kelly said

“We love our children very much and are happy that our family blooper, our family error there on television brought so much laughter to so many people.”

Which is all lovely, but will you look at Marion! That cool, calm and collected nonchalance in the face of the (presumably) braying press, that sideways ponytail, her pink glasses and chic trench, that LOLLIPOP are all marks of a girl who is destined for great things.

And the internet entirely agrees. Social media proceeded to light-up with hero worship for Marion, as well as some career suggestions – from Doctor Who to literal president of the universe – should she deign to listen to them.


This is the kid who interrupted her Dad’s BBC interview. She is my queen today and forever. #hero #boss #style #ootd
