Details Behind Malia Obama’s Day As A Hollywood Production Assistant



President Obama’s oldest daughter, Malia took Hollywood by storm this week and got her feet a little wet … In the world of production.

Earlier this week, Malia spent a day on the set of Steven Spielberg’s forthcoming Summer sci-fi series, Extant working as a production assistant. “She helped with computer shop alignments and the director also let her slate a take,” an insider said.

Another source tells TMZ that the 15-year-old was treated just like all PA’s … Basically  little peons to go fetch coffee. The source tells the news outlet that she also helped the crew by “blocking people from walking through scenes during shooting.”

Per The Wrap, Malia, who has expressed interest in film making, was overheard saying, “My first time. This is a big deal.”

It’s worth noting that not only was Malia working for Spielberg, but Halle Berry who is featured on the upcoming series. (Can somebody say nerve wracking?) But it sounds like Malia handled herself just fine and enjoyed her day on set.

According to the program’s description, Berry plays the role of an astronaut who tries to reconnect with her husband and son after returning from a year-long space mission.

“I’m always on the lookout for amazing roles, and when you see material that contains this strong of auspices, nuance and complexity, it compels me to run toward it no matter the medium,” Berry said in a statement. “For five months a year I’ll get to live with and play this incredibly intelligent and vulnerable woman, and for the remainder of the year I’ll continue to look for other roles that move me as deeply as this one.”

Extant premieres July 9 on CBS.
