Even professional cheerleaders aspire to Bring It On!
Vanessa Born was a professional cheerleader for the NBA’s Sacramento Kings for three seasons, but felt there was something missing. She packed up her bags and made her way to Hollywood, where she landed a string of roles, including co-starring on Hannah Montana and CSI: NY, before coming full circle in her lead role in the fifth installment of Bring It On: Fight to the Finish. Although she may have had more experience than some of the other cast members, Vanessa recalls having to put in some grueling hours and training for the role as Gloria. In her recent interview with Kiko Martinez at Extra News – Chicago’s Leading Bilingual Newspaper, Vanessa admits, “My butt got kicked on that set a lot.”
If a professional cheerleader is feeling the burn, we’re guessing this sets the stage for the most intense story of the Bring It On saga yet! Catch Vanessa’s full interview click here.
