Though Florence Pugh has received acclaim for her work in Lady Macbeth and the TV series The Little Drummer Girl, she’s headed for an entirely different stratosphere thanks to Fighting With My Family. Directed by Stephen Merchant and produced by Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, the film details the life of WWE superstar Paige (Pugh).
“We love her because she is so loud and outspoken” said Pugh. “She doesn’t care who says what to her, she’s going to play it the way that she wants. She’s going to represent the exact personality of who she wants to represent. That’s very impressive and cool thing she’s kept with her considering her fame in the last chunk of time.
