Roman Reigns made sure to keep himself busy while he was on the shelf battling CML leukaemia, which included shooting his role in The Rock’s new movie Hobbs & Shaw.
It turns out Reigns was also shooting for a second movie during his time on the sidelines, as revealed by actress Candace Smith on Instagram. Smith revealed that she met Roman on the set of the film The Wrong Missy in Hawaii during his recovery period.
Smith says she did not know who Reigns was prior to the shoot but put over his positive attitude and noted that he never once complained about or even mentioned the tribulations he was enduring.

Motivational story time🧚🏽♀️… “Hi, I’m Candace & you are?” is how I met my #MCM Joseph Anoa’i on the set of a Netflix comedy 🎥 I had NO idea who @romanreigns was 😆🤷🏽♀️ All I knew was he would be my “husband” for the next how ever many hours. Fast forward 8 hours into filming & I’m thinking to myself 🤔 “wow, this dude is so humble and talented, he is going far in life” 😆… “I wonder why so many random men walk up to him & give him dap”… As time passed & we got more comfortable with one another, we discussed life- how important it is to appreciate every single minute because tomorrow isn’t promised 🍃 I shared how my biological father died of prostrate cancer when I was 11 years old & Roman offered his support… I had no idea at the time he is CURRENTLY winning the battle against leukemia for the second time in his life!!! What an incredible human being! He never even mentioned it and exuded nothing but pure optimism. So before you use the “I’m just going through something” excuse for your negative ass attitude remember… the power of the mind & spirit is limitless. #RomanReigns 🖤🤙🏽✨ #FuckCancer #MotivationMonday
