Apart from her role in 'Fighting the Sky' and 'The Black Room,' Cole starred opposite Matthew McConaughey in 'White Boy Rick,' she spoke to MEA WorldWide (MEAWW)
Angela Cole is currently making headlines for her debut film 'Fighting the Sky' that recently released on DVD February 5. Cole is known for her star-like presence with endless talent. Apart from her recently released film, 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 a sci-fi thriller directed by Conrad Faraj. It is an alien invasion film starring Cole, who plays the role of Lorraine Gardner. After hearing strange sounds echo from the sky, 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 figure out a lot more than they had imagined they would, going through the unexpected.
In an exclusive interview with MEA WorldWide (MEAWW), Cole spoke about her fun behind the scenes moments and her upcoming projects. Starting off, Cole revealed her favorite behind the scene moments that made her laugh out loud. "So, my favorite funny behind the scenes moment would have to have been the day I was supposed to jump into the back of a moving SUV and do my own stunt. The day was an extremely hot day when we were rehearsing the jump. Director Conrad Faraj was near the trunk of the vehicle and was showing me how he wanted me to jump in the back of the car and close the door. Well, we both seemed ready to go, but I may have jumped the gun a little too soon, due to being overly excited and amped to do the scene, and may or may not have slammed the trunk door on Conrad's head before we filmed. After multiple icepacks, needless to say, we knew at that moment that this film was going to be fantastic," Cole said.
Apart from her role in 'Fighting the Sky' and 'The Black Room,' Cole starred opposite Matthew McConaughey in 'White Boy Rick'. Talking about the experience she said: "That certainly was an amazing experience with an incredible cast and crew. Everyone was very professional and fun to work with. It was definitely a dream to work with some of my idols I look up to."
Revealing some of the dream roles she would like to perform in the future, Cole said: "Well, I would really love to do a really good romantic comedy. They are my ultimate favorite genres; however, my dream role would be a lead role in a film that I can act, sing, and dance in all at once. I know it's a bit cheesy, but I have always loved movies like The Hannah Montana movie, The Lizzie Mcguire movie, The Cheetah Girls, High School Musical etc. A classic movie like that is so fun and appealing to me; a good family rom-com that I could sing and dance in. Kenny Ortega, I'm your girl whenever you need me."
Following this, we asked Cole to tell us more about her upcoming projects, she said: "Right now, I have been focusing on the press with this film and another one that I starred in that recently came out as well, called The Curse of Lilith Ratchet. In the meantime, I am in the works of dropping my first album. This is a pop-country album with elements of rock. My team and I have been working really hard at bringing all of it to life. I can't wait to show the world all of our hard work! Keep an eye out for my first single that will be dropping here in the next few weeks!"
Finally, Cole revealed to us the similarities and difference of performing for film and theater. "Theater acting is very big and exaggerated in order to reach large live audiences; bigger facials, bigger movements and animation. For film, all of the acting is very subtle. In my opinion, the best acting on camera is so subtle. The simple movement of an eyebrow, a glance, or even the slightest smirk can make all the difference. Sometimes, the very use of just the intensity of a stare can be so powerful. The camera can see it all!"
