Malia Obama gets a taste of Hollywood

Hey isn’t that … Elder first daughter Malia Obama on the Hollywood set of actress Halle Berry’s new CBS sci-fi series, “Extant” last week. According to The Wrap, Obama was working as production assistant on the show. She even “slated a take” — that’s La La land lingo for slapping shut the iconic black and white clapperboard to mark the beginning of a scene. Haven’t you always wanted to do that? Just us? Okay.

Neither CBS or the White House has confirmed Obama’s day-in-the-life of a semi-normal kid (whose parents happen to be buddies with “Extant” producer Steven Spielberg), but the 15-year-old has expressed interest in filmmaking in the past.

2014 has been a year of milestones for Malia, who attended her first prom recently (her date’s identity is “classified” info according to papa POTUS) and will be getting her driver’s license later this summer. The Obamas flew to the West Coast last Friday for the president’s commencement address at UC Irvine on Saturday.
