Iggy Azalea to Play Monster Truck Crew Head in Furious 7
Iggy Azalea was positively shocked to discover she had an essential part in the latest Fast & Furious instalment because she thought she'd just be waving a flag like her music pal Rita Ora did in the last movie. The Fancy hitmaker was thrilled when she was asked to join Vin Diesel and Ludacris in the new action blockbuster, Furious 7, but she expected a blink-and-you'll-miss-me role.
She says, "I thought that I was just going to have to wave the flag and then I came and I got a car and I got some lines and then (my character is) friends with Vin (Diesel's character, Dominic Toretto).
"I'm kind of the head of this monster truck crew of people and I'm, like, the girl in charge and I have this big truck."
The rapper confesses she was way out of her comfort zone on the set of the movie, and admits that acting isn't easy: "I'm still scared of acting. It makes me very nervous because I don't want to be one of those artists that exerts themselves and they don't do a good job. Just for me to say two lines, it took, like, 16 hours of setting up and going over and I definitely have an appreciation for actors now."
The highly anticipated movie is set for release in April 2015.
