'Fast & Furious 7' Release Date, Plot & Cast: Iggy Azalea Reveals Character is Head of Monster Truck Crew
During a recent interview with Access Hollywood, Iggy Azalea opened up about her acting debut in the upcoming "Furious 7" film.
The 24-year-old Australian rapper revealed that on her first day filming for the movie, she was blindsided by the extent of her role.
"I thought that I was just going to have to wave the flag [in my scene] and then I came [to set] and I got a car and I got some lines and then [my character is] friends with Vin," she said.
Azalea then went on to describe what her character does in the film.
"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," she said.
Being that her "Furious 7" role marks her debut as an actor, the "Fancy" rapper admitted that she's "still scared of acting," and it makes her "nervous" because "I don't want to be one of those artists that exerts themselves, and they don't do a good job."
The name of Azalea's character in the film has yet to be revealed. However, Azalea did inform Access Hollywood that her character has two lines in a scene that took approximately "16 hours" to set up.
"I definitely have an appreciation for actors now," she said.
Azalea's acting contribution to "Furious 7" was first announced back in July.
At the time, "Furious 7" actor Vin Diesel announced Azalea's cameo during an interview with Sky Rock FM.
The actor also posted a photo himself and Azalea on set of the film.
Another "Furious 7" actor Michelle Rodriguez followed suit and posted a selfie photo with Azalea on set and praised the rapper in her caption.
