Lalaine (Royal Kill)

Lalaine (Royal Kill)
DID YOU KNOW?

The movie's original title was simply 'Princess'

We sat down with ROYAL KILL star Lalaine to ask some questions about her controversial new movie as well as some pretty stupid questions, hoping for some pretty stupid answers.  We also had a chance to get some exclusive candid shots of Lalaine getting ready for and attending the informal press conference for the movie (see the bottom of the page for those) in which a protester erupted into violence against one of the film's producers.  The turmoil was caught on camera by some bystanders:

Royal Kill centers around a fierce assassin from a kingdom in the Himalayas arrives in America to assassinate a high school girl. She is unaware of her status as the last living heir to the kingdom. The king's bodyguard also arrives - to protect the girl. As the battle for the princess's life intensifies the line between good and evil begins to blur with a mind-blowing finale that defies all expectations.

TRAILER:

SHAKEFIRE: You signed on for ROYAL KILL before you turned 18.  After the years of post-production and retooling, do you feel that you would have portrayed your character any differently now that you are older?
LALAINE: You signed on for ROYAL KILL before you turned 18.  After the years of post-production and retooling, do you feel that you would have portrayed your character any differently now that you are older?

SF: Pat Morita past away before being able to see the final cut of the film.  How do you feel his reaction would be to the movie as it stands now?
L: I know that Mr. Morita was the first person to sign on this project and believed in this film and Babar (director) from the beginning. I don't think disappointment will be a word involved with this film except for him not being able to see it.

SF: From reading the plot of the movie and seeing the trailer, this seems like a fantasy adventure, yet the trailer states that it is based on a true story.  Are you aware of the true story?
L: It's based on true events and yes I know of it, more now than before. I learned more about it after i finished the project watching youtube.

SF: Were you upset by the long delay of the movie?
L: Upset? No, it tought me a great deal of patience though.

SF: Why the decision to have a one name moniker?
L: I never liked my first and last name together, it didn't really go or match so I kept the part I did like.

SF: Any plans for a new music CD?
L: maybe so.....

SF: You began your career in the very dramatic Les Miserables.  Do you feel that the public perception of you and your acting capabilities may have been ironically tarnished by your claim to faim in portraying Miranda on Lizzie McGuire?
L: No.......but yes, but no.

SF: Have you found it difficult to shake the Disney image?
L: I hope in time it will dissolve itself naturally but I will always be grateful to Disney for giving me a head start in this business.

SF: If Disney came calling with another long project like Lizzie McGuire, would you conside it?
L: IF they did then yes, of course.

SF: Do you have any projects on the horizon or any that you woud like to be involved with?
L: I've got my eye on a couple projects here and there but I don't want to get anyones hopes up, especially mine.
