She stated in an interview:
“I can’t say anything else other than I’m going to be in it. Asked when she would start filming, she remained mum as she claimed, “I have no idea … to be completely honest,”
“When it comes to the acting space, I’m basically unknown. I’ve never been in a real movie before or anything like that, so I had to start from the bottom like anyone else. I auditioned and auditioned and auditioned and broke down those walls because a lot of people do have that pre-conceived notion of who I am based off previous things I’ve done, so you got to really break that down and go hard, put in the work, take all the meetings, take all the auditions.”
