Transcript for Kim Fields discusses new film 'A Question of Faith'
It's can't lands of the ABC radio now and I am have hundreds happened during. I. I went don't know not except pitcher he and economy. Was just in theaters today and yes we opened today nationwide the movie is a quest and of faith. Yeah yes and you have a very pivotal role in this now I'm very very blessed to be a part of this amazing cast and my character to recent Newman she is really just dynamic I think wife and mother. And and when you know her world truly gets flipped upside down and what she has to go through to. Navigate through those waters and still you know be a rock and it lighthouse for her family. In the midst of some really difficult time it's. And I think what's very interesting is that you know we've seen you throughout the year is different roles of this something I'm very interested in knowing like what kinda -- used specifically to this film and what age when he part of it while the character. I mean honestly you know people Seau was it that you know the type of movie vision on that note this character when I'm reading the script. And I understand how can meet in as an actor or as a director producer so once I know what hat I'm wearing. And I'm reading it if it speaks to me in in a really dynamic way than I am Amalia and and this role again the role of two recent really G asked. Jumped off of the page you know I mean and I recently like being relaxed. Bloodline. On Netflix meal and you know I just really feel and some really good strong dramatic acting from my Kyle Chandler and Sissy Spacek in. It all these great things and and to be able Andy's great performances. And and to be inspired as I'm as I'm reading this script and saint okay laugh yeah. I think I can really sink my teeth into to recess you know and and really be able to feel like I'm I'm challenged in stretching out you know as a as an act. Yeah I think let's. Also very important with this film is that there's a message behind it she has substance do her mom you know I I think people tend to forget that you know you couldn't be entertained but she lost can leave there with something a little too absolutely absolutely and not. Be hit over the head you know with message message message you know that sort of thing. But at the same time ESP entertained and the thing about this genre. Yes it's a dramatic and it's it's it's a drama. But it's also a faith friendly films and so often times. I'm of people felt like why is it going to be one of those soft. Movies where you know you Havel a problem and you pray and then sighs no. This is in your face very real issues and problems that are dealt with in a very real. Way you know and and the idea of well that some of the characters are faith based or faith frankly they they are they have faith. That doesn't mean that you're exempt from not only having difficult and challenging times in and situations and circumstances. But how you deal with them is still very real you know I even though you might have faith. Used to get angry some get disappointed you still get confused and and and an almost depressed sometimes and and he you know been able to really show these characters. What I love is that it really wraps its arms around the humanity. Of the characters and that's in me is what resonates amazes so relevant regardless of faith gender and color economic status. Cultural awareness anything Yan and and I think people are gonna resolutely. This film yes I heard you guys have had such eight amazing response in Atlanta you guys took gold bar and so were you surprised at how he would just came out which is still supportive of this project. I wasn't surprised I was very excited don't give me or on what I wasn't surprised from the standpoint. People audiences viewers moviegoers are very mice are trying to strong characters. Compelling stories and great storytelling and that's what this film hats you know it's checks all three of those boxes so. I feel like it was you know kind of if it was supposed to happen that way you know 44 at the theater takeover it to happen and for. Almost 3000 people in one setting to be able to watch the film on so many screens. Yeah and I think. Also you have that's that's southern hospitality kind of come and broke it and as mentioned before I think people you know what amounts of what you you know we've seen you over the years on he's been so busy and entrepreneur Nouri of so many things going on where things that I know you have an eight block yes November crash November in my autobiography. Yes yes and if you can't about that because if you light. I'm now I have the title as blessed like my surprising journey. Actually tears details from our own currency so that says a mouthful right Mary. After we get it fixed Noory guy you're going to be tallying have salon and first off let let me you know. Pushed you visit to break this story now and why was it's still important to. This tells his tale because. In many cases people say you know what I am I I feel like there's more to do and I don't wanna tell an RA now yeah but yeah wolf you know when I thought about it. My fortieth anniversary in the industry you know that's that's by the grace of god a really long time and he's. And then on to look at 47 when campus 47 when I wrote this a 47 years on the planet. And feeling like now's a good time you know two reflect. Felt kind of milestone age if you will. And to be able to share am with the level of transparency. That people don't normally we know from me in terms of things that every parent. Because I'm an insanely private person. And so I felt that you know the timing was great there were milestones with in the career. With he anniversaries of live in single. Facts of life. New uncharted waters that I had been apart but my beloved dancing with the snacks and real housewives of Atlanta. Doing so much directing today just seemed like now is a good time to kind of take a breeze and it takes looking at how god has blessed me. And and really kind of take a pause on the journey to say OK guys spent four DeAngelis take a look at this year and now here we go it the next four. Yes I love it. And talk about those milestones I mean facts of life my goodness and and of course one of my phase livid thing I promise asking every epic and a raging out at the weight plotted it out as a narrow it down. I have to ask because you know why I had been staying tuned and you know this is all this is the season of reboots and should he makes in the Bible. Holly senator Hansen no IU all interested in and being a part. Need reboots I know you Latifah had mentioned ends with India works for a living in our annual art. Well we've had some I'm really love. Lee conversations quite honestly about a live in single reboot it is not out of the realm of possibility. And said that's something that Gina I would I would certainly explore been apart. Of that. You know reboot. Facts of life you know we did a reunion movie years ago and that sort of thing aunts. I don't know quite as much about it reboot for facts. But you know I feel like that's one of those treasured jams that. He kind of does want to leave that. You know in in the involved you know bring you that every now and then I must like Limas Disney movies. You bring it out every now and then and you know let people enjoy it have you know couple might generations get to know in and in you know put back in the fall farm. And asked well you know we can only hope I mean I asked that I am Adam rage he. And later hired and now I'll act after I eat out SCI is glorious to play again a character that. Certainly not like me at all week as an act and look for those opportunities to be able to lean against act Alec mentioned with the world and now.
