ComingSoon.net spoke to Gina about her next movie, “In The Blood“, in an exclusive interview. This film will be Gina’s 3rd, after success in “Haywire” and “Fast 6”.
CS: How did “In the Blood” begin for you?
Gina Carano: It just came! I got it a long time ago. I remember reading the script for it and I called my agent and was like, “Look, I really like this script.” I kind of connected with it immediately. Sometimes I’ll get scripts and they’re hard to get through or I don’t really connect with it. This is one script, though, that I just really connected with and really wanted to do. I called my agent and was like, “I want to make this happen.” I had been in London shooting “Fast & Furious”. Two days after I got done shooting, I went straight to Puerto Rico and was wearing a wedding dress, filming there.
CS: It seems like such a quick transition you’ve made from being an MMA fighter to being an actress. What’s the long-range career plan on your part?
Carano: It’s kind of interesting. You have your first couple of films and you don’t know exactly what you’re doing. You’re kind of going off of everybody else. Thank God I was surrounded by so many great people on “Haywire”. It was such a great first experience with “Haywire” and then I got to continue that experience with “Fast & the Furious 6”. It was a completely different group of people, but they were all wonderful. I started really enjoying getting into the acting part of it. Displaying your emotions on film as well as being physical. I think it’s really in “In the Blood” that I really got the bug. It’s one of the best feelings in the world being able to successfully get your emotions across.
CS: What would you say is the biggest thing that has surprised you about acting as a career?
Carano: Cinematographers can see everything. They look through that little lens and everything is just right there. They can see all your faults and you have to come across as genuine. I think that really understanding your character and being able to make that a believable thing is something pretty special. I think that actors work their whole lives to get the opportunities that I’ve gotten. For me to play catch-up in that short a time was not as easy as it looks. […]
