We were joined on the Popternative show by Katherine McNamara to discuss her new action thriller film, Air Force One Down which was released in select theaters on February 9th and is now available on digital. Directed by James Bamford (Jade, Arrow), it also stars Ian Bohen (Yellowstone, Teen Wolf), Anthony Michael Hall (Halloween KillsBosch: Legacy), Dascha Polanco (In the Heights, Orange Is the New Black), and Rade Šerbedžija (Slow Horses, The Saint).

Katherine plays rookie Secret Service agent Allison Miles on her first assignment on Air Force One as it faces the ultimate test when terrorists hijack the plane, intent on derailing a pivotal energy deal. With the President’s (Ian Bohen) life on the line and a global crisis at stake, her bravery and skills are pushed to the limit in a relentless battle that could change the course of history.

In our interview, Katherine talks about reuniting with director James Bamford as they both previously worked together on the series Arrow:

“What I loved so much about the style of even how Arrow was filmed is we had a chance to really be inside the action and to be there with the characters, and that keeps you in the story. But now that [Bamford] is running the show, he was able to lean even more into that and really dive in and go there.”

She also goes into detail about filming the fight scenes and stunts herself and the preparation that went into it. Watch the full conversation with Katherine McNamara below.

Air Force One Down is available to purchase on digital.
