10 Things You Need to Know About The Remaining‘s Alexa PenaVega
It’s been well over 10 years since Spy Kids first hit theaters, but its leading lady, Alexa Vega (or rather Alexa PenaVega, since she married Big Time Rush’s Carlos Pena back in January of this year), has shown no signs of slowing down anytime soon. Between a TV series (The Tomorrow People) a new film currently in theaters (Sin City: A Dame to Kill For), as well as an upcoming movie (The Remaining), we can barely keep up!
Fortunately for you, we caught up with the 26-year-old actress to get all the details on what’s to come. Here are ten things you need to know about Alexa PenaVega:
Congrats on The Remaining! Can you give us some background as to the plot and how your character works into it?
"Thank you! I was really blessed to be a part of this project. I play Skylar. She is a loving, fun girl who is very close to her friends and family. We meet her on her wedding day... It also just so happens to be the day the Rapture begins. Skylar watches the people that she loves and cherish pass away and can't figure out why. Suddenly, her faith is challenged in a way it never had been. She is left with a choice to believe in her faith and be saved or left to endure a hell-like earth. I love this film because it really made me think of where my faith was in my life and what what would happen to me. I really think it's a film that everyone needs to see."
Psst, you can see Alexa in The Remaining starting this Friday, September 5.
