Former Olympian Lolo Jones, who made a name for herself as a track star and bobsledder, has now made her first steps into the world of acting, after landing a role in the film Left Behind. Lolo has now shared an image of herself from the set of Left Behind, along with co-star Nicky Whelan.
As well as posting a picture of herself with Nicky Whelan, Lolo Jones also admitted that she almost lost it when she met Nicolas Cage, who stars in Left Behind. Jones took to her official Twitter account to tell her followers, "Nicolas Cage sat next to me during makeup and my head bout spun round like Ghost Rider BUT I 'ACTED' cool. Learning this craft fast #LeftBehind."
Lolo Jones also revealed how she plays the role of a gate attendant at an airport and that she got to speak 10 words in the movie, "Really 8. I counted 'Mr. Williams' as (two) words to increase Oscar chances," she joked.
As well as starring Lolo Jones, Nicky Whelan and Nicolas Cage, Left Behind also stars Chad Michael Murray, Jordin Sparks and Cassi Thomson. Left Behind is directed by Vic Armstrong and will open sometime in 2014.
