I didn’t know if I was going to make it, I was scared to death.
It’s very scary.’
I knew I had to be able to shoot to protect myself,’ she adds.
‘It wasn’t like it was a huge thing for me to be in the movie.
I was so terrified.’

‘So it’s all about me?’ she asked.
‘Are you kidding me?
I have a gun and I’m not scared?
I mean, I have my gun, it’s just that I don’t feel safe.’
Alyssa also spoke about the controversy surrounding her choice of her surname.
‘In the beginning, I wasn’t sure if I wanted to use the surname ‘Alyssah’, which is a very heavy-handed, offensive name that’s been around for a while,’ she said.
‘But now I’m happy with it.’
