Lala Kent is incredibly proud of her latest project, and she's not letting anyone take that away from her.
Earlier this year, Lala filmed the upcoming World War II-era drama Axis Sally starring Al Pacino, directed by Michael Polish, and produced by Lala's fiancé, Randall Emmett. However, it appears that not everyone has been so happy for the Vanderpump Rules hostess.
"I’ve been in the arts since the age of 12. When I fell in love with acting it became my craft- my baby," Lala recently shared on Instagram. "People can say whatever they want about roles that I book. That I had an 'in.' But to play opposite Al Pacino, to deliver a monologue in front of him, that’s not just given to someone. That’s earned."
Lala then went on to thank Polish "for being the actors whisperer" while directing her. "When I questioned my choices, you got me to the place I needed to be," she said. "This will go down as an iconic moment in my life."
Lala flew down to Puerto Rico to film Axis Sally in February. In the photos she and Randall shared on Instagram so far, we saw Lala rocking a more conservative look than usual with a 1940s 'do and a plain brown long-sleeved dress while filming scenes in a courtroom. And yes, Lala does have some scenes with none other than Academy Award winner Pacino, as you can see if you swipe left in the above Instagram post.
Any criticism that Lala may encounter doesn't matter, though, because she'll always make Randall proud. "Proud of you and this role that [you're] crushing from the 1940s [they're] all going to be blown away!!" Randall previously gushed on Instagram.
The filming of Axis Sally doubled as a romantic getaway to Puerto Rico for Lala and Randall, as you can see in the below Instagram posts. Her fiancé even gave her a Valentine's Day surprise while on set.
Axis Sally is just the latest entry on Lala's impressive acting resume. She has also appeared in Dragon Warriors with the late Luke Perry and the horror movie The Row, and she'll also reportedly be starring in the sequel. We'll also see Lala in the upcoming crime dramas Vault and 10 Minutes Gone.
