Best known for her work in Outlander, Sophie Skelton stars in 211, an action-drama that’s headlined by Nicolas Cage. Skelton is Lisa MacAvoy, the pregnant daughter of a cop named Steve (Dwayne Cameron) who’s about to experience his most harrowing day on the job. Cage is Mike, Steve’s partner and father to an understandably distraught Lisa.
“Dwayne was so easy to get on with,” said Skelton. “He’s really warm and we just sort of managed to muster up that chemistry straight away and we played the scene first where I tell him that I’m pregnant. We talked about it quickly and we and just decided to play the scene whereby they have been trying for a baby for a long time so you get that release and ecstasy that it’s finally happened. That makes the rest of the day and the events that unfold a lot more hard hitting because it goes from ecstasy to a complete 180 flip. Their lives are really shattered.”
