RG: So here we are at Nation’s Fire filming with Chuck Liddell on the set in Burbank, California. Man, it’s great to have you here. What did you think about the movie and your part as Vito?
Chuck Liddell: Oh, it’s been fun. It’s another chance for me to get killed in a movie, so it was good working with everybody and I think it went well.
RG: So you’re playing a role with Krista Grotte and her husband in a pretty heavy-duty scene, and Krista’s been nailing it on this movie. How did you feel about working with Krista?
Chuck Liddell: Oh, it made it real easy. It always helps me when someone’s great across from me to make me look better. So I’m still a little bit new to this and getting more and more confident with it, but it always helps to have someone across from you delivering their lines and making it easy. She is very talented.
RG: Being on the set today, it’s a little different from in the ring. How have you adapted to getting into acting?
Chuck Liddell: Well, the way I’ve adapted, I think I take stuff from training for fights. It’s the same thing, you know. It takes practice. It takes work. It’s hard, and I practice at home. I take classes. I do work. I’ve been working on my craft, and I’m just hoping that each movie, I get better and better. I’m enjoying it.
