Hally Berry is a fan of “Extant’s” new production assistant, Malia Obama.

On Thursday, Berry, 50, appeared on “Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen,” (via Us Weekly), where the “Kidnap” star opened up about what it was like working with the former first daughter as a production assistant on the set of CBS show “Extant.”  Berry had nothing but praise for former President and First Lady Barack and Michelle Obama’s eldest daughter, and said she took after her parents.

“She was fantastic. She was amazing. She is such a smart, beautiful, young woman,” Berry said of Malia. “Look at who her mother and her father are, so duh! She was amazing.”

As a production assistant, Obama, 19, was expected to help the cast and crew with several tasks on the set, including fetching coffee. Berry said she was impressed with how hard Malia worked and how being part of the first family did not stop the young lady from pursuing her current job. However, she added that it was hard to treat Malia as only a PA while knowing her family background. Berry also joked that at times she was tempted to ask Malia if she could talk to her parents on the phone.

“I was such a huge fan of her. She was amazing. She was down to do whatever a PA is asked to do and I had wild respect for her for that,” Berry continued. “But everybody couldn’t really see her as a PA. Although she tried and tried to be one, we just couldn’t really see her as one, but to her credit, she tried very hard to be one.”

In June, reports about Obama working on the “Extant” production made headlines. However, most of the stars of the show remained mum about her involvement, except for TV veteran Camryn Manheim.

“I can tell you that’s true,” Manheim confirmed to Entertainment Tonight at the time. “I can tell you that [Malia] is graceful, and lovely, and just charming and delightful… She’s pretty remarkable. I mean, they are a remarkable family.”

Speaking of the Obamas, the former first lady made her first public appearance since leaving the White House at the Women’s Foundation of Colorado’s 30th anniversary on July 25. During the event, Michelle admitted during her speech that racism still affects her to this day.

“The shards that cut me the deepest were the ones that intended to cut,” Michelle said (via Denver Post). “Knowing that after eight years of working really hard for this country, there are still people who won’t see me for what I am because of my skin color.”
