'Fighting the Sky': Angela Cole researched ufology and did her own stunts for her role as Lorraine Gardner
In an exclusive interview with MEA WorldWide (MEAWW) Angela Cole spoke about her role in 'Fighting the Sky' and what inspired her to play the character
Angela Cole is currently making headlines with her debut film 'Fighting the Sky' releasing on DVD. With the presence of a star with endless talent, Cole is also known for her role in 'The Black Room' (2017) and 'Mr. Right,' a series she competed in 2016.
'Fighting the Sky' is an alien invasion film starring Cole, who plays the role of Lorraine Gardner. After hearing strange sounds echo all around, a group of researchers led by ufologist Gardner go on an expedition to track down the sound and see where it is coming from. As their journey continues, the group find a lot more than they had imagined they would.
In an exclusive interview with MEA WorldWide (MEAWW), Cole spoke about her role in 'Fighting the Sky' and what inspired her to play the character. Starting off, Cole revealed how acting in 'Fighting the Sky' is completely different from the other movies she has acted in since then (the movie was shot in 2016). "It was honestly a challenge, this film. For one, it was my first film I have ever done. It was also a completely improvised script, so, all of the dialogue was improv. It was an opportunity to be able to be a strong hero lead female in one of my favorite genres of film. It definitely was one of my favorite sets to work on, still to this day," revealed the actress.
Talking about what inspired her to take on the role of Lorraine Gardner and how she prepared for it, Cole revealed, "I couldn't say no to being able to star in one of my favorite genres as a female hero. Heck, they even let me do my own stunts. To prepare for the role, I researched a lot about ufology prior to filming. I wanted to educate myself as much as I could, on the science behind all of it, beforehand."
Towards the end of the movie, Cole is abducted and taken back to the past. When we asked her if there is any particular reason or meaning behind it, she said: "I guess you will have to wait for Fighting the Sky 2!! There is not any confirmation that the movie will be happening at this point, but you never know!"
Following that, we asked Cole what she thinks, viewers can take away from the film, and how she thinks they will react to the film. She revealed: "I feel like the audience will definitely have a lot of fun watching this film. The movie has it all, really. Thrill, adventure, friendship, love, comedy; you name it. I really think it is going to leave the audience wondering, what really is out there and wanting to understand the universe that much more."
The film revolves around the alien invasion, and because Cole revealed this is a genre she loves, we asked her if she believes in aliens, alien invasion's and time-travel, she said: "I definitely believe that there are other forms of life out there. The universe is just so massive. Whether there are beings of other intelligence or any other types of lifeforms, I do believe they exist outside of our galaxy."
