(AP) -- Maya Moore swears she's been preparing for the role of Betty Lou her entire life.
The WNBA Finals MVP and two-time champion for the Minnesota Lynx, who starred at UConn, has branched out into acting in Pepsi's Uncle Drew ad campaign that features Cleveland Cavaliers star Kyrie Irving. The spots debuted at the start of the NBA season. In the viral video, Moore plays an older woman who is the sister of Nate Robinson's character. It was a role she was a natural at.
"I've always done a really good old lady for some reason," Moore said. "I'm a little actress at heart. I love to perform and make people laugh and definitely have been practicing that old lady persona for a while. I have an old soul in many ways."
