The "Get Curious with Vice President Harris" video was released last week during World Space Week, and is part of a YouTube series with the goal of getting children interested in space.
The spot shows the VP having a conversation with five teens as she expresses her love for "the idea of exploring the unknown."
One of the child actors, Trevor Bernardino, 13, told KSBW that in order to be considered for the role he had to send in a monologue talking about something he's passionate about, as well as three questions he would ask a world leader.
The high school freshman from Carmel, California, then had to interview the director of the video "so they could get an insight into Trevor's interviewing skills."
"Then after that, like a week later my agent called me and was like 'Hey Trevor, you booked it,'" shared the teen. Trevor and his family did not know who he would be interviewing, only that they would be traveling to Washington DC to interview someone "important."
