“Getting into acting is something I have always wanted to do,” Iman told Fox. “I worked with my acting coach, I went in for an auction, and then they called me. I went on to set and I fall in love with being an actress.”
Dope revolves around Malcolm, a high-school senior, who is leading a normal happy life, has friends and also his own punk band. But things start to go wrong when he along with his friends encounters a drug dealer in his birthday party. That is where a series of wild adventurous events begin to happen.
Iman is playing the character of Lily, who went on to create mess after mess in the life of Malcolm who is already in trouble and is trying to find a way to get out of it. Lily is a beautiful yet spoiled and wild girl who just cannot keep her clothes on.
“For me, it is not a big deal to be nude because I have shot with a lot of photographers in the past in fashion, so to do a film being nude is the same thing.” Iman said.
Chanel Iman wants to continue his acting alongside her well-established modeling career and hopes to get more acting opportunities in the future.
“I just hope my acting career takes off and I am in another big film next summer,” Iman said. “I am still doing shoots all the time and working as a successful model.”
In the days to come, Chanel Iman may join the ranks of Cybill Shapherd, Andie MacDowell, Jane Fonda, Jessica Lange and Milla Jovovich who made a successful transition from model to actress.
Dope is slated to hit domestic theaters on June 19.
