First Look: Michael Jackson’s Daughter Paris Becomes a ‘Star’
She wants to be startin’ somethin’! Paris Jackson, daughter of the late megastar Michael Jackson, makes her acting debut in the March 8 episode of Fox’s musical drama Star. Her role: social-media guru Rachel Wells, hired to turn the show’s quartet of young singers—Star (Jude Demorest), Simone (Brittany O’Grady), Alexandra (Ryan Destiny) and Eva (Sharlene Taule)—into internet sensations.
During a publicity shoot, “Rachel grabs the camera and takes matters into her own hands,” says Jackson. “She’s bossy and confident and sort of a control freak.” Lead singer Star is the boldest of the group, but that’s not enough for the media hotshot. Says Jackson: “Rachel forces Star out of her comfort zone, and that’ll put her in an uncomfortable position with her bandmates.”
