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.”
