First-daughter Malia Obama has stepped out of the White House and onto the production lot. Last week, the 15-year-old spent a day in Los Angeles working as a production assistant on the set of the new CBS sci-fi television series Extant, produced by Steven Spielberg.
An on-set insider told The Wrap that Malia helped “with computer shop alignments and the director also let her slate a take.”
According to New York Daily News, the President and First Lady flew into California on Friday and spent the weekend in Palm Springs with Malia. Their younger daughter, 13-year old Sasha, did not accompany them.
While Malia’s time on set with Steven Spielberg might be news, her love of filmmaking is not. In a profile of President Obama for The New Yorker in January, Malia was revealed to be an aspiring filmmaker and a fan of the HBO Original Series Girls.
The series Extant stars Halle Berry and is set to premiere on July 9.
