Young actress Isabela Merced confessed to wanting a sequel for her new action thriller movie Sweet Girl alongside Aquaman star Jason Momoa. The show premiered on Netflix this August 20.
The show’s plot revolves around Ray Cooper (played by Momoa) seeking to avenge his wife’s death. This took place after a pharmaceutical company took off the drug he needed to save her life. His daughter, Rachel (portrayed by Merced), follows his quest.
The two actors received positive praises for their strong acting performances. Fans claimed that Momoa’s emotional scenes were very compelling. Merced’s performance boasted a true heroine for her confidence and willpower.
Although the film itself received mixed reviews because of the overused and predictable plot, Merced hopes for a second installment. In an interview with ComingSoon, she revealed working with a great stunt team called 87eleven. She also mentioned in the interview that she felt like playing Charlize Theron in Atomic Blonde. She performed her own stunts which wowed both her crew and the viewers.
The role was evidently far from Merced’s usual roles. Merced starred in some comedy and wholesome shows such as Instant Family and the live-action adaptation of Dora and The Lost City of Gold. She also appeared in Transformers: The Last Knight and Sicario: Day of the Soldado.
The new role she has undertaken proved that she has got the unlocked potential to star in future action films. On the other hand, Momoa’s role was also different from his common roles. Both actors succeeded in bringing their characters to life despite having strange roles.
Fans can only hope that Isabela Merced and Jason Momoa reprise their roles for a Sweet Girl 2 movie. Other than that, this project can serve as Merced’s stepping stone for more action-packed thriller shows in the future. Sweet Girl is currently streaming on Netflix.
