Lifetime movies dating violence
Playing her love interest is another actor with whom I am unfamiliar–Grant Gustin. Most notable were the scenes of his being high on drugs or alcohol–extremely realistic!
And the chemistry between his character and Jessica’s character was hot and steamy.
Honestly, I am consistently astounded by the fact that no matter what role Sebastian is given in a film or a television show, he completely throws himself into it.
His role made a significant impact on the story, and I still say that they should have brought him back at least one more time.
Cocaine Godmother: The Griselda Blanco Story (8 p.m., Lifetime) – Catherine Zeta-Jones stars as Griselda Blanco, a pioneer drug kingpin in the Miami-based cocaine trade.
Two romances for the price of one, folks – and one of the couples is African American. Saturday Night Live ( p.m., NBC) – Jessica Chastain hosts with musical performer Troye Sivan.
As to the mother (played by Annabeth Gish), no one could have played this role better in my humble opinion.
She played single mother Maddie Stewart who is doing all she can to see that her son gets his life on track after her divorce. Why on earth would they hire such a talented actor as Sebastian Spence and then only feature him with a five-minute role?
It's understandable that this is a sore subject for some, as legal proceedings are still ongoing and the jarring memory of the event remains relatively fresh.
But it may be that the discomfort also stems from the film's attempt to answer some of the more difficult questions that linger: What was the nature of the relationship between the two South African celebrities?First of all, this was what I call the “typical” Lifetime movie. My understanding is that this is inspired by actual events–another hallmark of Lifetime films.
