Pakistani Nobel laureate Malala Yousafzai has made a cowgirl cameo in the We Are Lady Parts Season 2. She appears on the episode when a song based on her life is played.

She has been a fan of the show which has Muslim characters as the leads.

“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 said in a Zoom interview with British Vogue.

When asked about seeing her in the cowgirl era, following in the footsteps of Beyoncé and Bella Hadid, she said: “I would feel honoured to be part of that cowgirl group, joining Beyoncé and Bella Hadid [laughs].”

While filming, she admitted that she forgot that the song was about her. When she watched the episode, together with the cast and crew, Malala said that it was so beautiful

“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.”
