Hey sexys! My first lead role in a feature movie was just released, and I wanted to share my awesome experience with all of you. The movie is called “Tuff Love” directed by Derrick Pierce, and released by Wicked Pictures. I got to shoot alongside Jessica Drake which was amazing! It’s an MMA movie with awesome fight scenes, hot sex scenes, and a love triangle.
The movie was shot over the course of 3 days in Los Angeles. To get ready for the movie, Jessica, Derrick and myself did some fight training which consisted of stand up kickboxing, and jiu jitsu. Aside from the fight training, I had to do acting training with the help of Brad Armstrong and Derrick Pierce. The character I played reminded me a lot of myself, so it was helpful to feel like I could relate to my character.
I played a fight trainer, who’s main fighter was her boyfriend Evil (Derrick Pierce). She always dreamed of fighting, but her boyfriend didn’t support that idea and only wanted her to focus on his training. She meets a girl named Badass (Jessica Drake), who invites her to join an underground women’s fight club. Adrianna hesitantly joins the fight club and finds success in the ring, but as a result her relationship with Evil takes a toll. Badass begins to feel threatened by Adrianna’s success, so she goes after Evil. Without giving too much of the story away, I’ll just say the movie culminates with a big fight between Adrianna and Badass. At stake is not only the main title fight, but also the love of Evil.
The fight scenes were shot in a warehouse in downtown that was converted into a dark and seedy fight club. There was a fight cage built for the movie and we had a lot of fight fans come out to watch and cheer on the battles. We didn’t take it easy on each other and what you’ll see in the movie are real punches, kicks, knees and take downs. I have fight training in my background but I was really impressed by how quickly Jessica picked up on all the movements. She’s a natural grappler!
I included some behind the scenes pics from set for you all to enjoy, and a trailer of the movie. I hope you love the movie as much as I do! You all have to check it out and let me know what you think. The movie is out now through Wicked Pictures. Use this link to get your copy: Buy Tuff Love
