London: Actress Katie Holmes says she had to learn how to shoot a gun for 'Miss Meadows'.
The 35-year-old actress enjoyed playing the titular character in her latest movie, which tells the story of a teacher who moonlights as a vigilante, partly because she got to handle a powerful weapon, reported Contactmusic.
"Miss Meadows is a new character for me because she's kind of funny - a substitute teacher who turns into a vigilante when she sees a child being harmed. She was fun to play - plus, I learned how to shoot a gun," she said.
Holmes, who has eight-year-old daughter Suri Cruise with ex-husband Tom Cruise, said she is pleased to be back on the big screen after a few years off.
"Work ebbs and flows but I have been fortunate recently to have more projects come my way. And because my child is growing up, I have a bit more time to focus on my work - and I'm excited about it."
