Lana said, “I like to look at my career in WWE as chapters, different chapters of Lana’s life. I feel like this chapter of Lana is a lot closer to C.J. in the sense of the way we’re even packaging her versus when I first came on the scene with Rusev and I talked with a very thick accent. Then when I was doing the Bobby Lashley and Rusev story, that’s further. That’s was an adulterous chapter in Lana’s life, so that is very different to who I am, but it was exciting to play.”
She spoke about becoming a better actor because of this by saying, “I think WWE has helped me become a better actor because it’s on live television, you only get one take but you still have to do as much work as if it was a regular scripted television. Vince McMahon is the director essentially and we have to do what he wants, so it’s kind of that same skill set and I’m really thankful because I feel like it’s actually made me a lot better of an actor.”
