Halle Berry and Jamaal Hepburn on set of Extant

Bahamian Actor Jamaal Hepburn has just completed work as a costar on the CBS science fiction drama series ‘Extant‘.The show is produced by Steven Spielberg and has Halle Berry as its lead.

Extant centres on Molly Woods (Berry), an astronaut with ISEA (International Space Exploration Agency) and is assigned a 13-month solo mission aboard space station Seraphim. She returns home to her husband John, a robotics engineer who created their son Ethan, a prototype android called a “humanich”. When Molly discovers that she has mysteriously become pregnant despite years of infertility, she begins a search for answers. The episode featuring Hepburn can be seen this Wednesday, August 5 on CBS.

Hepburn explains the day he met Halle Berry.

I walked in to the hair and makeup trailer and began introducing myself to everyone not knowing that Halle was in a corner of the room. When she saw me, she paused and I waited until I locked eyes with her, prompting me to scurry over,” he said.

We met halfway and she gave me the biggest hug! Then she asked me which character I was playing and I froze. My brain got all foggy and I couldn’t even remember what role I was on set for. Thankfully the makeup artist saw my struggle, and shouted the answer after my five second freeze up,” said Hepburn.

She (Berry) is the sweetest thing and is hands down one of the most beautiful women in the world! After we talked about The Bahamas and the fact that we … sat next to each other at the Poop Deck restaurant in Nassau when I was 14.”
