The youngest Nobel Prize winner, Malala Yousafzai, ventures into the realm of acting by making her debut in comedy.

She has joined the cast of "We Are Lady Parts Season 2," a British comedy series that revolves around the vibrant lives of the all-female Muslim punk band, Lady Parts.

Malala appeared with a brief but glorious cameo, backed by the original song based on her life, "Malala Made Me Do It”. She emerged from the shadows dressed in Western and Pakistani-inspired garb, sitting atop a fake horse.

Yousafzai praised the series for uplifting stories of Muslim girls, allowing viewers “to connect with them and relate to them” — particularly in a time when she believes “humanizing people is so important.”

in a Zoom interview with British Vogue, the noble prize winner stated:

“When I saw the set on the day of filming, it was completely beyond my wildest imagination. And the funny thing was, I didn’t have lines, so it made things a lot easier,”

She further added:

 “It made me feel really proud. I hope that we can keep inspiring girls and young women to believe in themselves and be change makers.”
