Vivian Falcone is cashing in on the perks of being Melissa McCarthy’s daughter … by playing the younger version of her mom's character in the new movie, "Michelle Darnell."
TMZ obtained Vivian’s minor contract and she's definitely getting a boost from her parents … her mom is the star of the film and her dad, Ben Falcone, is the director and writer.
She was originally cast as an extra but was later given an upgrade ... playing the 10-year-old version of Melissa's role.
She isn’t making mega bucks yet ... $880 a day. It's unclear how many days she is working, but it's still a good chunk of change for an 8-year-old.
