LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, April 23, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Wendy Wilkins’ past experience in law enforcement is finally beginning to pay off for her with acting roles in law enforcement. She explains, “I was a cop for five years and pretty much dealt with everything you can imagine a cop would deal with, from murder to mayhem to undercover work. It was a great life experience and was helpful in informing my acting, though as a cop you are taught to keep your emotions in check, whereas as a creative artist your senses are bubbling near the surface.”
Despite her law enforcement background, cop roles never seemed to come her way, but that is now changing. “I’m really excited that finally I have been cast in two roles that I can bring my life experience to,” says Wilkins. “I was surprised that I never got auditions for law enforcement type roles, considering I was a real-life one, however, I have just been cast as "Carrie - an FBI agent" in a feature film based on a crime novel from a female writer. We will be filming soon, but can't divulge much more except I help put some wrongs, right.”
As for her future, “I also have been developing my own content. A number of different projects in the works but one that is coming up is a feature film where I will be playing an ex-cop, based on events from my real life. It will be shining a light on domestic violence and also sex trafficking. There are many uplifting and empowering moments and strong female characters, and the audience will be taken on a roller coaster ride of events.”
You can read Wendy Wilkins’ memoir, Sex, Love & Cops, about her five years as a young cop in Melbourne, Australia where she discovers her first arrest, first love, first murder, cop culture, cops and guns, and a #metoo moment.
