The first daughter was spotted working as a production assistant, an insider tells TheWrap
President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama’s oldest daughter Malia could be setting her sights on Hollywood.
Malia Obama, who turns 16 on July 4, was spotted this past week working as a production assistant for a day in Los Angeles on the set of Halle Berry‘s upcoming sci-fi series “Extant,” an individual with knowledge of the production told TheWrap.
“She helped with computer shop alignments and the director also let her slate a take,” the insider said.
The insider also said Malia laughed with delight saying, “My first time. This is a big deal.”
CBS has not yet not responded to TheWrap’s requests for comment. A spokesperson for the First Lady also has not responded.
In the series — which hails from Steven Spielberg‘s Amblin Television and CBS Television Studios — Berry will play an astronaut who returns home from a year-long solo mission in space and tries to reconnect with her husband and son in their everyday life. Her experiences in space and home lead to events that ultimately will change the course of human history.
In addition to the “Extant” role, Berry and her producing partner, Elaine Goldsmith-Thomas, have entered into a two-year, first look production deal with CBS Television Studios.
Malia attends the exclusive Sidwell Friends private school in Washington, DC, but classes let out earlier this month. She joined her parents on Friday in Rancho Mirage, where President Obama took in a round of golf, according to the Press Enterprise newspaper.
The President was in Southern California to deliver the commencement address at the University of California Irvine on Saturday.
