Petite actress and daredevil Erica Linz is at the center of the film, as both an actress and aerial artist. The 'actor-bat' started off climbing trees in Colorado and trying to fly off roofs with pine branch wings before diving into competitive gymnastics. In 2001 she began a decade-long journey when she joined the live Cirque du Soleil show Mystère, followed by a featured role in KÁ. She continued to perform in live Cirque shows through 2012 when she made her feature film debut in Cirque du Soleil Worlds Away.
We recently caught up with Erica to celebrate the release of Cirque Du Soleil - Worlds Away Blu-ray, available in stores starting today, Tuesday, March 12th. Here is our exclusive interview, where Erica talks about her love for obscure movies, jumping off rooftops, and working with James Cameron.
Cirque du Soleil Worlds Away was released December 21st, 2012 and stars Erica Linz, Igor Zaripov, Lutz Halbhubner, John Clarke, Dallas Barnett, Tanya Drewery, Sarah Houbolt, Ascia Maybury. The film is directed by Andrew Adamson.
