PAIGE VANZANT has opened the door to an acting career after enjoying a debut movie role alongside TikToker Bryce Hall.
The American plays the part of a professional fighter in the horror film which is produced by boxing promotion Triller.
Triller recently bought the Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship promotion in which VanZant is currently signed to.
She told SunSport: “I was really excited that they thought of me, it was an awesome experience.
“I was a quick three days, I made sure I condensed it to three days so that I wouldn’t miss very much training.
“I was able to train, because I have some amazing coaches in LA too, but yeah, It’s an awesome new movie.
“It’s going to be a horror movie – so all the horror fans can get ready for it.”
Coincidently, VanZant last year commentated on 22-year-old Hall’s boxing loss to Austin McBroom, 30, as the pair reunited on set.
She said: “Another small world; I actually commentated Social Gloves, which had Bryce Hall on it, and he’s also in the movie.
“Bryce Hall is in it, myself and a few other professional actors.”
VanZant makes her BKFC return on August 20 in London so she found herself limited for time while filming.
But having got a feel for the big screen, the part-time All Elite Wrestling star is ready for future roles.
VanZant, 28, said: “I really hadn’t had anything on my mind about acting at this second, just because I have my fight coming up.
“But I would love to continue to act, I had a great time. This was my first movie role and it was honestly an amazing experience.
“I only got to be there three days, which is unfortunate because I fell in love with the cast, they were super special and all very nice.”
