Malia Obama continues to build her professional resume with her latest brush with folks from the small screen.
According to TMZ, the daughter of President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama was spotted working behind the scenes on HBO’s hit show “Girls” while drinking blue juice and hanging out with the lighting crew in Brooklyn. In all, Malia spent about three hours on location on the “Girls” set as the show filmed at a hipster restaurant. To cap it off, Malia also spent time with “Girls” star and creator Lena Dunham, according to reports.
Malia’s summer internship on the “Girls” set marks the first daughter’s latest experience working on the set of a television show. MTV notes that she served as a production assistant on the CBS sci-fi series “Extent,” starring Halle Berry last year. Malia’s duties during that time included doing computer shop alignments and coffee for the cast and crew, among other things.
Malia’s interest in Hollywood was noted in 2012 by her mother who told People, “Malia has expressed some interest in filmmaking.
“Just like her father, she is an avid reader, and she enjoys movies,” Mrs. Obama said. “But she’s a freshman, so she also knows she has years in college to explore her interest.”
