Vivica A. Fox Talks 'The Wrong Cheerleader Coach,' Her Soap Beginnings, and So Much More! (EXCLUSIVE)

Vivica A. Fox Talks 'The Wrong Cheerleader Coach,' Her Soap Beginnings, and So Much More! Read More Here ---->>>

 


Soap Opera News had the pleasure of talking with the incredible Vivica A. Fox! Join us below she discusses her new Lifetime film The Wrong Cheerleader Coach, soap operas, and much more!


“I didn’t plan on acting,” she revealed. “I actually started off as a model. Then I was discovered by a gentleman named Trevor Walton, who happened to be working at Paramount Studios. He got me an agent and I started landing some parts in commercials. Then my very first acting job was on Days of Our Lives.” From there she would go on to act on The Young and the Restless and Out All Night before landing the blockbuster Independence Day. “And the rest is history! I’ve been so blessed,” she expressed. 


Vivica looks back with love for her time in daytime sharing that her fondest memory is working with the late Kristoff St. John. “I had my very first love scene with him and it’s a funny story. I had never done one before and he stuck his tongue in my ear and I freaked out,” she laughed. “I miss him. He and I went on to do a Christmas movie together called A Christmas Cruise that did very well and before he died we were going to do another one together. That’s my favorite memory that I got to share the screen with him.”





As for whether she would ever return to her soap roots she had this to say: “Absolutely! I will never leave the world of soaps. That’s where I started. If someone had a good, juicy role I would love to. I don’t limit myself. I’ll do soap operas, movies, television shows, and theater. That’s what my job is. I’m an actress! I’m proud that I came from the world of soap operas because soap actors are some of the hardest working actors. The fact that they can do pages and pages of dialogue is amazing. There’s definitely an art to that.”


Last year was an extremely busy one for the actress with the end of the hit drama Empire, the launch of her hair collection, and the production of several films. So, when the pandemic hit she found the bright spot in the darkness and used the lull period to get reorganized. “I slowed down during the beginning but it gave me time to get myself together. It was a really busy time for me so it gave me time to breathe.” Now, she is “busier than ever” working on her podcast Hustling with Vivica A. Fox and the upcoming release of The Wrong Cheerleader Coach, her 20th film in the So Wrong, It’s Right series for Lifetime!

The film, premiering October 17th at 8pm EST/PST, follows a father and his daughter who move to California for a fresh start after the death of his wife. It’s there that his daughter gets invited by the head cheerleader coach, Ms. Burke (Fox). to join the squad. Though, as it always does in these thrillers, things turn dark when the new assistant coach sets her eyes on the young girl’s father, stopping at nothing to get what she wants. 


For the last few years, Vivica has been behind the camera and in front of it as she has produced a number of projects for the Lifetime network. “It’s just been a natural progression for me. I’m heavily involved with casting, the script, wardrobe, and every aspect of the film.” She shared that the experience is a special one for her as she sees one of her films trending on social media. “That just absolutely warms my heart. It’s like oh, my gosh! People are watching!”


Always hustling, Vivica has a number of projects in the works including two sequels to True to the Game, where she plays drug lord, Shoog. The next of which will debut on November 6. She also has the ambition to take the next step in her career with directing. “I’m so proud to have seen so many directors like Tasha Smith. She is directing a lot of amazing things. Even Taraji [P. Henson] directed an episode of Empire and of course, Regina King, Debbie Allen, and Kerry Washington. The list goes on and on of all the beautiful sisters starting to direct and have our stories told, acted, and produced.”


Thank you, Vivica, for the chat! And be sure not to miss The Wrong Cheerleader Coach this week on Lifetime!
