Naomi Campbell: 'Paris Jackson is destined for great acting career'

Supermodel Naomi Campbell is convinced Michael Jackson's teenage daughter Paris has the talent to become an "incredible actress".

The 18-year-old will make her screen debut on Wednesday night's (08Mar17) episode of U.S. musical drama Star, the Lee Daniels series Naomi has also filmed a guest appearance for.

The British beauty did not share any scenes with Paris Jackson, who recently signed with top talent agents at William Morris Endeavor Entertainment, but she believes the pop "royalty" is destined for great success.

"I just feel in my gut that she's going to be an incredible actress," Naomi tells People Now.

"Why shouldn't she be up there? This is her time... I think she's going to show us that she's a brilliant actress. She's got her own talents and she's gonna show that to everybody."

Naomi previously met Paris when Michael's only daughter was just a child, and she and her two brothers Prince Michael and Blanket were all so "polite".

"I met Paris with her father, and I was very lucky enough before Michael passed away to have tea with Michael and the kids."

The supermodel shared a special bond with the King of Pop after being featured in his music video for In the Closet in 1991.

"I love Michael, I mean I really do miss him and someone said to me yesterday, 'Do you know it's been 25 years since you shot the video?' and I couldn't believe it," she shares. "I mean, what a genius. (There's) never going to be another person like him."

Jackson died in 2009.
