Read my Interview with one of its stars below! @kazytauginas
: How was the combat training for Equalizer 2? It looked intense!
: The combat training for this film was quite intense. I honestly have to give credit to Jeff Dashnaw (the stunt coordinator) for putting together a state-of-the art team. I worked many hours with Mick Gould and Frances Smith to get familiar with a fully automatic rifle and learn how to properly use it. Something I knew NOTHING about. I felt I really wanted to hold myself to a high standard. With this type of training, there really are no short cuts. We just had to put in hours of practice. So the guys were really helpful and understanding with my constant requests for rehearsals. Luckily, coming from a fight background, I consider physicality just another tool in my acting chest.
: How many years have you been working as an actor?
: I went back to school in 2009 and graduated from New York Film Academy’s Acting for Film Conservatory Program. So, really, we’re coming up on a decade. Time flies!
: I saw you have a purple heart for lupus, is there a personal story behind it?
: I felt that the red carpet would be an appropriate place to raise awareness for Lupus. Millions of people across the globe are affected, yet nobody really knows what it is. Lupus is an autoimmune disease wherein the body’s immune system attacks it’s own organs and tissues. It can be life-threatening. My mother has been fighting the disease since before I was born. I wrote and produced an award-winning short film called “Standing Eight” about a boxer who is forced to retire after being diagnosed with systemic lupus. _
