Eric tells us Anne looked stunning in the film, which began filming in 2019 before it was delayed by the pandemic, and the entire cast and crew are devastated by her death.
Anne plays a rodeo trainer in the film, and Eric says that during negotiations to hire her for the role, her agent warned that she was not an experienced rider, so the producers decided they needed a double for some barrel racing scenes.
The plan for these riding scenes, we’re told, was for Anne to slowly get on the horse, then switch to the stunt double…but once they were on location in Oklahoma, Anne surprised everyone. .
We’re told Anne politely asked the stuntman to get off the horse, then got into the saddle and told Eric to roll…and that’s when she took off on the horse in a full gallop, performing the barrel turn and the race to the finish in record time.
Shocked, Eric says he went to Anne and told her what his agent had told him about her not being an experienced rider… to which Anne replied, “I’m not. no… but my character is a champion!”
