Halle Berry on 'Extant': I've Never Worked Harder in My Life

Halle Berry dresses down as she films scenes for her new movie Kidnap on Saturday afternoon (June 27) in Van Nuys, Calif.

Earlier in the week, the 48-year-old actress’ husband Olivier Martinez was spotted chatting on his phone as he arrived at LAX Airport.

Halle recently opened up about the hard work that goes along with making her TV show Extant.

“It is a whole lot of work. I mean, I’ve never worked so hard in my life last year,” Halle said (via EW). “And I was nursing, my baby was three months old, so I was doing drive-by nursings every two hours and I was over my head, the amount of scenes we shoot in a day, the things I had to memorize.”

She continued, “But it was an awakening last year. I thought, ‘I’m going to go into TV, be at home with my family.’ I didn’t see my family and I never worked harder in my life. So hats off to everybody who does television, because it’s a grind.”

    The first season of this show was pretty awful and I thought it was done but no…..shocked that it’s getting a second.

    I couldn’t make it through the first season. Convoluted, poorly acted, BORING, and dark in a really weird way. Not dark in a way that lends itself to an ambience of suspense. Not the good kind of dark.

    I agree. I gave up somewhere in the first season and forgot it even existed.

  • Delores Pauldo

    Is she saying it was hard to the show? Need to go back to doing movies.

    Love her television show and will also love her new movie Kidnapped. Halle’s success keeps going and going. Olivier is still hot too.

  • Joan

    Can she get it through her pea brain that she can not act, and this is going to be another boring stupid slow hard to look at movies. she is old trying to still be young. OLD LADY, GET OVER YOU SELF, SHORT WIDE NOSE, AND UGLY OLD DRY LOOKING MAKE BELIEVE HUSBAND. PASS, THIS PERSON WILL NEVER BE A GREAT ACTRESS. BETTE DAVIS NEVER. NICOLE MURPHY FIGURE NEVER.

    what olivier really needs to do is go to rehab for a full yrar get all cleaned out; no smoking no drinking no drugs, olvier martinez looks like he does drugs because he looks awful in his face, and i guess everyone is afraid to tell him well if i were his agent I would TELL olvier martinez EITHER access A NEW life STYLE or GET OUT OF THE movie business, These actors in hollywood do movies, drink and drug themselves to death then drop dead on their drug playroom floors of their house, then yoou wonder what happened the stupid people they are around just dont say anything because they think oh olivier is 50 hes old enough to know better, but olivier does not because he is still a stuipid child in his mind, never growing up in reality only in the movies, i believe olivier martinez is on drugs because he looks gaunt dried out and like a raison in the face, Kloe kardashians ex has had friends 3 friends die in a matter of a month all BNA players, well all because no one was brave enough to say you cant bring that alcohol or drugs in my house or they were not brave enough to flush all the alchohol down the toilet that exactly what should be done, Not ever will anyone drink or brink alchol in my house, its a drug you stupid people, and i can talk I have never taken drugs or drank anything except evian water in my llife, so I CAN TALK and i am proud of it
