London, (ANI): In a bid to hep her daughter Lourdes to make it big in movies, Madonna has reportedly offered her a small role in her upcoming film about King Edward VIII. The 'Material Girl" is stepping behind the camera to direct a historical drama based on the former king, who abdicated in 1936 so he could marry twice-divorced American socialite Wallis Simpson - a move that rocked the monarchy.
And she has arranged for her 13-year-old offspring to make a cameo appearance in the period drama.
"She's arranged for a small role for Lourdes. It's not a significant part but it will give her a good taste of life in the movie business. Lourdes has made it clear she wants some kind of career in the entertainment industry and her mum is more than happy to help," the Daily star quoted a source as telling the Sun newspaper.
"She's already an incredible dancer thanks to years of classes and she's also been having singing training," added the source. Earlier, Madonna had banned Lourdes from appearing in a Harry Potter movie after she was offered a role as a Hogwarts student by movie bosses.
