The model told us that he auditioned for the role and after he got it, flew to Atlanta to shoot the scene. However, he was unaware of what the series was about or who else was starring in the show.

“I didn’t know what was going on,” he said. “They had changed the name of the series. A lot of times, I was like, ‘Oh my God, what is this about?’ And I didn’t know what the project was about until I saw the trailer.” After watching the trailer, Rickey told us that he was so “thankful and so happy to be a part of this project,” adding, “it’s like it’s the number one show to watch right now in the world. And it makes me feel so good about myself.”

Prior to its release, Donald Glover’s project was being kept on the down low, including its all-star cast.

“It was so secretive like when I got on set, everything was so private. Everything was like so closed off,” Rickey said. “I didn’t know Billy [Eilish] was a part of it until the premiere.”

Aside from its shocking guest stars, fans love decoding the Beyoncé nods throughout the series.

Rickey Thompson says his favorite “party” moment was meeting Beyoncé.

Was it fate or just a total coincidence?

Rickey landed a role in the popular Amazon Prime series Swarm, which gives several nods to A-list singer, Beyoncé. In 2022, Rickey was invited to attend the singer’s “Club Renaissance” event in Paris, and he was able to meet and party alongside the star.

“That is something I will never ever, ever forget,” Rickey told us. “Like literally her saying my name was the most amazing moment ever.”

“The only thing I was saying was like, Oh my God, I love you. I love you,” he continued. “And that’s all I could say. […] When she hugged me, I felt like every problem, every stress I had in my body just released, honestly.”

When he’s not rubbing elbows with A-list stars, Rickey is encouraging his followers to take their own PTO days, in partnership with Tequila Don Julio Rosado.
