Halle Berry Calls “Extant” Co-Star “Boy Wonder”
Halle Berry has found some small screen success with her show, Extant. The show features Berry as an astronaut that returns from a 13-month solo mission in space only to find out that she is mysteriously pregnant.
Although she was alone, and infertile, Molly becomes pregnant with possibly the world’s first artificially intelligent humanoid. The question is-how?
There’s no doubt that Halle Berry is enjoying her time filming Extant. She even said that she enjoyed playing an expectant mother, even though that mother isn’t expecting in the normal sense.
“I’m the happiest in my life when I have been pregnant, truly. So to be pregnant again on a show right after giving birth didn’t scare me at all. I thought, ‘I’m going to ace that part of this, for sure!’” said Halle Berry of her exciting role.
Not only does she enjoy playing an expectant mother, Berry says she enjoys working with her on-screen son, Pierce Gagnon.
“We call him “Boy Wonder.” He’s so smart and so talented, but at the same time, he’s a little kid. As our showrunner Greg Walker says, we just hope to return him to his family as he was when he came to us. That’s our goal — not to ruin him.”

That would be nice. That’s all we need is another nutty child star running around in 10 years.
Halle Berry says that filming for TV is different, but she’s learning as time goes on.
She said, “It’s like flying without a net. I’m just having to trust, and I have a wonderful team of people that I’m working with, so it’s not that hard for me to … but there’s still an element of letting go of control, not knowing where you’re going, and hoping to craft a character that’s going to make sense at the end of the day.”
Halle Berry is such a talent and so great in Extant. Good luck to her as she continues with the show!
