Model Chanel Iman makes her Sundance debut this week, branching out with her first major film role. RumorFix caught up with the 24-year-old Victoria's Secret Angel at the Sundance Film Festival Friday. "I'm really excited. I'm very grateful blessed to be here in Utah," she told us. "I never thought I would be doing a film and here I am. Last year, I just came for fun -- now I'm coming back for a film." The 24-year-old has a role in the new film Dope, a coming of age story that takes place in a rough neighborhood of Inglewood, California. The film also marks the big screen debut of her former boyfriend ASAP Rocky. While Chanel didn't talk about her new single status, her co-star Kiersey Clemons told us what it was like filming with the former couple. "When we were filming they were together," she tells us. "They filmed on different days. And they were really supportive of each other. They both did so great. They didn't distract each other, which i think is really nice. Because personally if i was filming with my boyfriend I think I would be distracted." Rock was helping Chanel with her lines, then the supermodel realized that her rapping boyfriend would be perfect as the protagonist. "She told him Rocky -- this guy is you," Kiersey told us. "Rocky is so good -- he impressed me the most," she added.
