Halle Berry Becomes Astronaut for Extant

Halle Berry Becomes Astronaut for Extant
/* Story Top Left 2010 300x250, created 7/15/10 */ google_ad_slot = "8340327155";
 
 

The acclaimed actress, Halle Berry is going to play an astronaut in the new CBS series “Extant”.

Halle Berry will play the role of an astronaut in the new CBS summer series “Extant”. In preparation for her character in the program, she had a brief stint in space under weightless conditions. 

And while this sort of experience can make many people feel queasy and nauseous, Halle Berry wasn’t daunted by it at all. She is a tough person indeed. 

One of the executive producers of "Extant" spoke of how Halle never got sick due to the ride in outer space. "She didn't get sick," said Greg Walker

"People around her when they were shooting up in the airplane where she went to test and experience Zero G, people around her got sick, but, no, she didn't. She made it to the very end. She toughed it out."

Whereas many of the others who accompanied her felt pretty woozy, she just wasn’t affected by the journey into outer space in a similar way. The dramatic series is to air pretty soon. 

Halle also had to endure long hours of suspension on a floating rig in order to illustrate zero gravity conditions. There too she showed a remarkable degree of patience. She is much more mature than her age in years. 

Since Halle Berry already had a lot of experience with suspension wires from her time in X-Men as Storm, she performed in an excellent manner for the series. 

Halle did her job with alacrity and finesse. She had definitely done her homework. Besides consulting with a NASA specialist, she simply immersed herself in the whole milieu of space travel. 

"She did a lot of research," said Walker, the show runner for "Extant." "She spoke to a NASA consultant. She went up in the Zero G plane. ... So she was a true gamer. She was a die-hard."

Extant is a sci-fi, mystery, thriller packed with action sequences and horrific scenes. One of the producers is none other than that phenomenal genius…Steven Spielberg. 

And Steven is taking an inordinate interest in all the goings-on of the series. He is pretty much into the whole thing and that means it will turn out just right given his feedback and input. 

Halle Berry meanwhile, is not a small-time player on the scene. She has already won an Emmy and an Oscar and is a very competent actress to boot. “The minute I started to read it, I couldn’t put it down,” Berry told EW in an exclusive interview for this week’s cover story on Extant.

“I thought, ‘Wow. This is different.’ It’s innovative. Molly is a strong female character, which I really love to play. Molly is a complicated woman with a complicated family. Who is a woman who goes away to space for a year and leaves her husband, first of all? Who is a woman who comes back pregnant and tries to handle it somehow on her own? That just felt like a complication that I wanted to be a part of.”

 

Berry plays Molly Woods, an astronaut caught in the dilemma of space travel. Inspired in part by Sandra Bullock and George Clooney’s “Gravity”, “Extant,” from Steven Spielberg’s Amblin TV, will wow the audiences when it comes out on CBS on July 9.
