MALAYSIAN actress Maya Karin will be making her Hollywood film debut in Alone.
She will be starring alongside Teen Wolf actor Tyler Posey and veteran Canadian star Donald Sutherland.
The 39-year-old actress is currently shooting the film in Los Angeles and she has been sharing her updates on social media for the past few days, according to hype.
Maya told Malay Mail that her offer came at the very last minute and she has only one scene in the movie but a very crucial one.
“Through my connections and networking, I made friends with director Martin, and a Malaysian counterpart offered, and helped send me to Los Angeles to shoot this one scene. The main reason I came here was for just one scene in my first Hollywood movie,” she was quoted as saying.
Directed by Johnny Martin, Alone follows a young man named Aiden (Posey) who barricades himself inside his apartment and starts rationing food when an outbreak hits the city.
His complex is overrun by infected Screamers, and he is left completely alone fighting for his life.
Maya will play a scientist who is researching on the virus infection. Though she has only one scene in the movie, she revealed that her script is four pages long and she’s given only one day to memorise her “science dialogue”.
