Fox Sports reports Gina Carano has been very busy over the past few years, landing roles in several feature films including "Fast & Furious 6" as well as her latest movie, "In The Blood," which opens on April 4.
Ever since her last fight in Strikeforce in 2009, Carano has turned her focus solely to acting because she needed to dedicate herself to that art 100 percent if she was ever going to make a career out of it. Right away, Carano landed action roles like in the movie "Haywire," where she starred opposite Hollywood A-listers like Michael Fassbender and Bill Paxton.
She's still doing the action-movie thing these days. But Carano turned a corner in her latest movie, in which she was finally able to drop the tough-girl facade for at least one major scene, and it opened her eyes to what was possible in the future.
"One of the things I really like doing that shows up in 'In the Blood' is an emotional scene, which it was so hard to get to that place, but once I got there and I did it, I'm so proud of that," Carano told FOX Sports on Monday. "There's fight scenes that I've done that I'm really, really proud of, but for that moment, that day, walking away I felt, 'That's what it's about.'
"I think that the world and the entertainment business makes it really hard. Because they see you're good at something and they want to see you do that over and over. Sometimes actors and actresses say, 'That's what I'm good at, that's where I'm staying, that's where I make my money,' but for me personally, I just need to constantly be growing."
