Angela found her passion for acting at the age of nine when she attended a community theatre audition with a neighbor, and accidentally landed the role of Lucy in The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe. When she was 20, she hired private acting coach, Karen LaVoie, and was later accepted into The American Academy of Dramatic Arts. Upon moving to Los Angeles, she was picked up by the Cosden Morgan Agency, decided not to attend AADA and began auditioning. Angela’s resume includes extra work and small roles in television/ film productions including Warner Brothers Cradle to the Grave, Paramount Pictures The Hunted, HBO’s Live from Baghdad, ABC’s The Practice, and Idiot Boyfriend starring Jimmy Fallon. Angela co-starred in two Independent films, Dream Girl and The Inglewood Project. She was also featured in NBC’s Dog Eat Dog and The John Walsh Project.
She left Los Angeles in 2002 after meeting Shawn Sweet, the love of her life, in North Carolina. Her professional focus shifted from acting to personal training and print modeling for companies such as IBM, Ashley Furniture and Oxygen fitness magazine. She founded “The Fitness Studio” franchise in 2007 with the heart to teach godly physical stewardship. The company was blessed, expanding to three locations. It was sold in 2012 when the Sweet family relocated to Texas. Shawn and Angela Sweet have two children and currently own/operate Sweet Financial Group, LP together.
Angela’s heart is to honor God using whatever avenue of ministry He provides, including acting. She is grateful to invest in Stronger and confident that God will reveal truth, comfort hearts, and restore hope through this film.
