Madeleine Mantock stars in the leading role in London’s West End stage Royal Shakespeare Company adaptation of Maggie O’Farrell’s best-selling 2020 novel HAMNET, having opened at The Garrick on the 30 September 2023. Madeleine makes her RSC debut as the world-renowned playwright’s wife ‘Agnes Hathaway’ in the story that puts ‘Shakespeare’s wife in the spotlight at last’ (New York Times). Adapted by award-winning playwright Lolita Chakrabati (Life of Pi) this re-telling centres on the untimely death of their only son and reimagines the toll that that death would have on their family and how that may have gone on to inspire one of the greatest plays of all time, Hamlet.

Recently enjoying a sold-out run in Shakespeare’s home town of Stratford-Upon-Avon, following the world premiere press night, Madeleine was cited as ‘outstanding’ (The Times), exuding ‘a compelling composure and air of otherworldliness as the seer-like Agnes’ and ‘with a serene and stoical grace’ (The New York Times).

Here Madeleine explains what drew her to the role and gives an insight into her beauty secrets.

What initially drew you to play Agnes Hathaway?
I knew how much of a challenge it would be to try to live that story eight times a week and wanted to see if I had it in me.

What is the biggest difference between HAMNET the play and the novel by Maggie O’Farrell?
Lolita Chakrabarti’s adaption is told in a more linear timeline than Maggie’s novel. But we’ve kept the essence of the story and if you’re a fan of the novel you’ll definitely see, on stage, the characters you discovered on the page.

Did it feel special to start your Hamnet journey in Stratford-Upon-Avon, Agnes’ hometown?
It did. Stratford seemed like a real shrine to William Shakespeare and so it felt exciting to be shining a light on the rest of his family in their hometown.

How do you relate to Agnes?
One thing I love about playing Agnes is that the story spans such a huge chunk of her life. We see her struggling to blossom as a young woman, falling in love, marriage, motherhood, grief and freedom. There’s something for everyone to relate to.

Shannen heeft een interview gehad met Variety!

After being diagnosed with breast cancer in 2015, Shannen Doherty meticulously documented every step of her treatment on Instagram, from shaving her head to the horrors of chemo — and eventually her remission in April 2017. The actor, best known for “Beverly Hills, 90210,” “Heathers” and “Charmed,” would post multiple times each week, also peppering her feed with her workouts, dinners with friends and family and — one of Doherty’s passions — images of dogs in urgent need of adoption. “At that time, I think I needed it,” she says now about chronicling her treatment. And having been a fixture in the tabloids for decades, Doherty wanted to be in control of the narrative: “I wanted to own my life. It’s my life!” The social engagement carried her through, especially as other people shared their own stories in her Instagram comments. “It was empowering,” she says.

Doherty’s cancer recurred in early winter 2019, and is now metastatic Stage 4 cancer. She can be treated but not cured; she’s living with this disease for the rest of her life. And right now, on Instagram, though she still posts once or twice a week, she’s very much not detailing what this experience has been like. “I’m in a hermit phase?” Doherty says with a laugh, using upspeak. “I’m sort of taking all that energy and giving it to myself at the moment.”

What she’s concentrating on is not only working, but proving to Hollywood that people with cancer can work. “The best example that I can continue to set for other people with cancer, and to the outside world who doesn’t have cancer,” Doherty says, “is to show them what a cancer patient looks like. We are employable.

“So for me, I’m just trying to live the best I can, to be the best example at this moment.”

And she’s doing just that. Doherty, who turned 50 in April, filmed three movies back to back this year. Two of them will air during the same weekend — on Oct. 9 and 10 — on Lifetime. The first, “Dying to Belong,” is a remake of a 1997 TV movie (with Hilary Swank) about the dangers of sorority hazing, and it is archetypal Lifetime: an issues-oriented examination of a tragedy that also manages to entertain. In it, Doherty plays the mother of the girl who’s been hazed to death; she won’t accept the university’s account of the events, and turns investigator with the help of her daughter’s best friend. The second movie, “List of a Lifetime,” is about a woman (Kelly Hu) who’s been diagnosed with breast cancer, and gets in touch with the adult daughter she’d placed for adoption to tell her she may have the BRCA gene. Doherty plays the young woman’s adoptive mother, who at first is less than enthused about the intrusion — but comes around. The third project, a Bruce Willis action extravaganza called “The Fortress,” will be released next year in theaters.

Since October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the creative team behind “List of a Lifetime” was “tossing names around” with the network about who might direct the special content that would air after the film. Doherty, who has directing experience, including three episodes of “Charmed,” volunteered. Lifetime agreed, and Doherty’s call to action — featuring herself and her co-stars, and shot in an empty warehouse — will accompany the movie.

Kaley heeft een interview gehad met W Magazine op te praten over haar Emmy nominatie voor The Flight Attendant.

http//: 2021: W Magazine

For W’s second annual TV Portfolio, we asked 26 of the most sought-after names in television to pay homage to their favorite small screen characters by stepping into their shoes.

After three decades in Hollywood, and breaking out on sitcoms like 8 Simple Rules and The Big Bang Theory, Kaley Cuoco is ready to take flight for the next phase of her career: starring in The Flight Attendant as Cassie Bowden, the alcoholic, accidental gumshoe embroiled in an international mystery. The HBO Max series is so much more than a fizzy, flippant spectacle about a catty jet-setting crew—it’s a dark and dizzying puzzle that escorts the viewer from destination to destination, as the titular flight attendant attempts to solve the mystery of why she woke up in a very expensive Bangkok hotel room with her murdered one-night stand lying next to her.

The show is a compelling whodunit, thanks to the charming performance given by Cuoco, who, after starring in nearly 300 episodes of the syndicated sitcom The Big Bang Theory, finally received her first Emmy nomination, for leading The Flight Attendant. In fact, if it wasn’t for Cuoco’s absentmindedly looking through Amazon’s list of upcoming book releases several years ago, the show might not have happened at all (Cuoco serves as executive producer on the project, and she’s the one who optioned it for television). For W’s annual TV Portfolio, the actress opened up about her first Emmy nomination, being an original Bachelor Nation fan, and bringing some much-needed comedy to an otherwise very gloomy mystery on television.

What was going through your mind the moment you received your Emmy nomination for The Flight Attendant?
You know, it’s really wild. I’ve been doing this for 30 years, and I’ve never had a moment like that. I love being an actor. Simply put, I’ve never known another life. I’ve never had another job. There are so many good actors that don’t get any recognition. And you work and you work and you work. Then all of a sudden, you get this little gift and this little icing on top of this really massive cake that you don’t even deserve anyway. I never, ever thought I would be Emmy nominated, and I’ve always been so happy with what I’ve done, so this is just an absolute gift.

“This has been the honor of my career,” the actress says of her Emmy-nominated role in the HBO Max series

For Kaley Cuoco, receiving an Emmy nomination for her role in The Flight Attendant was icing on the cake.

“This has been the honor of my career,” Cuoco, who also produced the HBO Max hit, tells PEOPLE in this week’s issue. “When the announcements came out, my heart swelled. But I feel like I’ve already won.” In the show, based on a 2018 novel, Cuoco plays the titular character, an unstable flight attendant entangled in a murder. Tackling the producing aspect was somewhat uncharted territory for the star. “I had never made a show,” says Cuoco, 35. “I was like, ‘I don’t even know how people do this!’ And I didn’t realize, until this show, how many people are involved in getting this thing off the ground.”

Cuoco recalls a key moment on set when she realized her vision was becoming a reality. “I begged Rosie Perez to play Megan,” she says of her costar. “And eventually, I got her on board. A few months later, we had our first scene together in the galley and I looked over at her and my eyes started to well up.” “She’s like, ‘What’s the matter with you?’ And I said, ‘Do you understand this is like a child with her mood board?'” she continues. “I’d been involved in the whole thing, and it was a dream literally coming true in front of my eyes.”

She has also learned valuable lessons in the production process. “I asked a lot of questions,” she says. “You have to learn you’re not the smartest person in the room. I was a little fish in a big sea! It was a really humbling experience, but it also gave me a sense of bravery.” Ultimately, “I trust my gut,” says Cuoco. “It doesn’t mean I’m always right. But in all aspects of myself, it’s black and white, no gray. I go all or nothing!”

The 73rd Emmy Awards will air live on Sep. 19 at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT on CBS, and will be available to stream live and on demand on Paramount+.

Poised for her first nomination, Cuoco stars on EW’s bonus Emmys cover and teases what’s coming next on her HBO Max hit.

If you think it’s hard being an alcoholic flight attendant who wakes up next to a dead body in Bangkok with no idea what happened the night before, try being the actress playing that character on TV. “There were nights where I would go into my apartment in New York and cry. Like, ‘Oh my God, everyone’s going to hate this,'” says Kaley Cuoco of her anxiety while filming and executive-producing The Flight Attendant in 2019. “It was a lot of up-and-down emotions, because this project lived or died with me.”

Not only did The Flight Attendant live, the darkly comic thriller soared. After premiering on Thanksgiving 2020, the HBO Max series based on Chris Bohjalian’s 2018 novel racked up stellar reviews and a season 2 renewal (set to debut in spring 2022). Next came a wave of accolades for the Big Bang Theory alum, who masterfully balanced her character’s own whirlwind of emotions, from wild panic to deeply rooted shame. “I felt like I played 10 different women. I played the fun best friend. I played the sister. I played a girl who has serious trauma,” she says of Cassie. “It was an actor’s dream.”

You can read the full interview with Cuoco – she reveals which actor’s audition made her cry, explains why the show is moving to Los Angeles, and talks about making the most out of this virtual awards season – when EW’s July issue (featuring this bonus Emmys cover) hits stands on June 18. In the meantime, perhaps these teases about The Flight Attendant season 2 will tide you over.

1. Is Cassie going to join the CIA?
Though Shane (Griffin Matthews) hinted at a CIA gig for Cassie in the season finale, Cuoco says, “this is not all of a sudden going to be Cassie is a superspy. I think there will be a little bit of the CIA-asset stuff, on the side.”

2. We know he’s dead, but will Alex (Michiel Huisman) be back?
“I don’t think he will,” says Cuoco. But the “mind palace” – the elaborate, all-in-Cassie’s-head setting where she and Alex spent time together – will return: “Cassie is going to have to face some of her own demons in the mind palace, especially now trying to stay sober.”

3. With Cassie moving to L.A., will we still see her best friend Annie (Zosia Mamet) and her brother Davey (T.R. Knight)?
“I think we want [Annie] to come out and maybe look at some L.A. law firms so she can be near Cassie,” says Cuoco. As for Davey, “he is going to follow her to L.A. because he’s concerned about her sobriety, [but] we are going to find out that he’s trying to escape some of his own issues.”

Starring on “The Big Bang Theory” for 12 seasons made Kaley Cuoco one of the most well-paid TV actors in Hollywood history. But it was just the beginning for her it turns out.
By Leigh Nordstrom on June 9, 2021

Britney Spears is playing overhead, declaring that she just wants to dance with you, as Kaley Cuoco moves through her backyard in Givenchy, The Row, Jil Sander. A professional actor for some 30 years now, Cuoco is no stranger to a fancy dress. But today’s selection of minimalism, stripped down of all the hype, is a newer look for the 35-year-old, one she seems to be quite at home in, if her comfort in pulling off said wardrobe is any indication.

It’s fitting, of course, for a woman at the center of her own reinvention in the eyes of Hollywood, one from girl-next-door sitcom star to bona fide producer, award nominee and star of a dark HBO drama. Gimme gimme more, indeed.

Starring on “The Big Bang Theory” made Cuoco one of the most successful actors in Hollywood — her 12-season run made her one of the highest-paid actors in the history of TV, with the cast each bringing in $1 million an episode from seasons eight through 12 — but it also confined her to a very specific type of sitcom audience. She had no idea where she would go next after “Big Bang,” but something told her that if she wanted to pivot, she would have to go out and create it for herself.

Which is exactly what she did with a little show called “The Flight Attendant,” which she discovered browsing the internet one late night and which turned into a hit HBO Max series she starred in, executive produced, and for which she was subsequently nominated for two Golden Globes. Emmys, it’s your move.

Kaley Cuoco on Producing ‘The Flight Attendant’
“I think people were interested in the fact that I built this from the ground-up, that this was my project from the beginning,” Cuoco says of being seen in a new light since the show came out. “I think that got a lot of people’s attention and they respected that. They accepted the tone, they accepted this new path for me. But I do believe that them hearing my story over the last few years of how I got the book and how I got this thing going, I felt like I earned a lot of, I don’t know, there was this mutual respect between me and other actors and my fans. It was just, it was incredibly nice and I felt like I had this warm welcome into a whole new career that I didn’t even know was there.”

When “The Big Bang Theory” ended in 2019, Cuoco was advised to take the summer off and relax a bit, which was the one thing she knew she did not want to do.

Though she’s scaling new career heights with “The Flight Attendant,” the actor-producer has only ever wanted to do one thing: work

Since “The Flight Attendant” became HBO Max’s runaway hit late last year—one of the then-nascent streaming platform’s first—there’s been a certain narrative about its star and executive producer, Kaley Cuoco: that she “came out of nowhere.”

Join Backstage to access work from home jobs you can apply to right now!
Cuoco, who has been working professionally since the age of 5, finds this hilarious; she understands, though, how the story took form. “There was never a moment where I got tossed to the wolves, where I was like, ‘Oh, my God, I’m famous!’ ” Cuoco says, video chatting from her Los Angeles home. “I’ve been on this slight uphill trajectory my whole career, just slowly working, working, working. I was always kind of here.”

And she’s right. Having appeared on various television series throughout the 1990s and early aughts, she had amassed 25 IMDb credits by the time she landed her first true “break” in 2002 on the three-season comedy “8 Simple Rules.”

Being on sets from a young age, Cuoco posits, was a more useful education than any traditional acting class. “I took a few [classes] when I was very, very young, and it just was not for me,” she remembers. “The whole school of it was just being lucky enough to be on sets and being around adults at a young age, and having a time when I had to be at work and when I had to be quiet [and] memorize my lines. And going to the parties and the premieres—those were my proms.”

But the real reason the “overnight sensation” moniker is such an absurd one to pin on Cuoco, of course, lies in the fact that she spent 12 seasons starring on one of the biggest comedies of its time, “The Big Bang Theory.” The CBS sitcom from creator Chuck Lorre concluded in 2019 and made Cuoco one of the highest-paid television stars to date, a kind of success too absurd to even dream of.

Shannen Doherty Is Not Signing Off Just Yet
Fighting Stage IV breast cancer has forced some self-reflection, but the ’90s icon and so-called diva refuses to slow down.

On a cool evening in February 2019, Shannen Doherty invited some friends to a Venice, California, rental house for a dinner party. Doherty’s actual home was in Malibu, 20 miles north, but she and her husband, photographer Kurt Iswarienko, had fled the property a few months earlier, when a wildfire that started inland burned nearly 100,000 acres on its way to the Pacific Ocean. The couple’s house survived the blaze, but Doherty says the property sustained significant damage that made it uninhabitable.

The guest list for the dinner included only people Doherty trusted: her husband and the friends who knew the real Shannen—not the 1990s tabloid caricature, the loudmouthed bad girl with a temper. Actress Sarah Michelle Gellar was there, along with model Anne Marie Kortright, Malibu real estate agent Chris Cortazzo, and a Los Angeles doctor named Lawrence Piro.

Doherty had compiled the guest list, but it was Piro, her oncologist, who drove the conversation. Less than two years earlier, the actress had finished treatment for breast cancer, and Piro was at the dinner to explain that Doherty’s disease was back. The cancer, Piro said, was now metastatic (also known as Stage IV), meaning it had spread beyond Doherty’s breast and lymph nodes. “The way he presented everything to everyone was matter-of-fact,” Doherty, 49, tells me when we speak in June. The news was devastating, of course, and Doherty had invited Piro so her friends could get answers to the questions she knew they would have. Would she die of this? Probably. Would she die soon? Probably not. Why did this happen? It was impossible to know. Could this be treated? Yes, to a point. “Everybody got to ask questions and know what we were looking at as a group, as a team,” Doherty says.

About 300,000 American women are diagnosed with breast cancer every year. In the majority of cases, initial treatment for the disease is effective, curing the patient. But in a significant share of cases, the breast cancer returns, either to the breast or nearby lymph nodes or to other parts of the body. In Doherty’s case, despite the surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation she had undergone after her first diagnosis, it seemed that some cancer cells had survived the assault and made their way to her spine. Eventually, the disease will most likely spread further, to Doherty’s brain, lungs, liver, or some combination thereof.

Still, there was reason for hope, Piro told the group. Treatment for metastatic breast cancer, which was once an automatic death sentence, has advanced in recent years, with patients living longer and having a better quality of life. Some survive for a decade or more. Doherty’s treatment would include hormone therapy to block the estrogen fueling her cancer, plus a second targeted drug that is often effective at stabilizing metastatic disease. If this didn’t work, there were other drug combinations to try, but the bottom line was that Doherty would be in treatment for the rest of her life. As Piro explained all this, his patient sat at the table, listening.

Nearly 30 years after she played Brenda Walsh on Beverly Hills, 90210, Doherty is still striking, with high cheekbones and shiny, jet-black hair. “I think people have a mental picture of Stage IV cancer as someone sitting in a gray hospital gown, looking out a window on their deathbed,” Iswarienko, tells me. “I don’t see a cancer patient when I look at Shannen. I see the same woman I fell in love with. She looks healthy and vital.”

After a journey through breast cancer and a tough reconstruction process, the actress tells us about how it affected her relationships, learning to love her body again, and her goals for the future.

If you had looked at Shannen Doherty’s life a few years ago, you would have seen something pretty darn idyllic. Through years of hard work and indelible roles on Beverly Hills, 90210 and Charmed, she had established herself as a talented and respected Hollywood actress, and she had found love and settled down with photographer Kurt Iswarienko. Then, in 2015, she was diagnosed with breast cancer, and her world dramatically changed. Shannen immediately swung into action, and what followed was a whirlwind. “It’s been eye-opening, enlightening, and hard,” she admits. “There were definitely dips and valleys where I thought, ‘God, I wish this were easier.’ ” Her initial attempts at fighting the cancer cells with hormone therapy proved to be ineffective, as the disease had spread to her lymph nodes. So in May 2016, Shannen had a single mastectomy, followed by grueling courses of chemotherapy, and then radiation. About a year after radiation was complete, she underwent an intense reconstructive surgery. Now, “I’m in remission,” explains Shannen, 47, “but I’m still not done with this journey. Every five years [cancer-free] is another milestone.” Nonetheless, she is brimming with strength, positivity, and even gratitude for the disease that threatened to end her life. “As brutal as it was, cancer was a gift,” she says. “It opened me up, it taught me about myself, and it changed me as a human being forever.”

Going back, what do you remember about your initial diagnosis?
There was a lump, and I had a mammogram and then a biopsy. When I got the results, I was in the car with my mom and I just knew. The longer I sat, the more it started sinking in. Then I started crying. I called my husband and told him. And from there, I just put together a team—including L.A.-based surgeons Dr. Armando Giuliano and Dr. Jay Orringer and oncologist Dr. Lawrence Piro.

What made you decide to be so candid about everything on social media?
It was just about being as honest as possible. And then it became very important to me that I was there for people who were going through it. I would never give medical advice because I’m not a doctor, but I would always say, “Advocate for yourself.” And also, I get a little less trolls and haters on social media now, so that’s good. I think because cancer stripped me of my defense mechanisms, it allowed people to see all sides of me.

What was the lowest point throughout the journey?
I remember I got in the shower to wash my hair, and it just started coming out in clumps. I started screaming for my mom. I think that was harder than the surgeries. It was like, “Oh my God, this is real.” Right away, I made the decision to shave my head. My friend came over, and she shaved it. We laughed, and we cried. She shaved it in stages, so it was like a pageboy, then punk rock, shaved on the sides. It was a fun experience, considering that I was devastated.

How did your husband of seven years, Kurt Iswarienko, handle it?
A pivotal moment for me was when I was deathly ill from the chemo. They were worried about my organs shutting down because I couldn’t keep anything in. One time, I couldn’t lift my head, I couldn’t suck on an ice cube, I was done. And Kurt was crying, saying, “Please don’t leave me.” I looked at him and thought, “I can’t do this to him.” So I dug deep, gathered everything up, and charged forward again. Kurt and I got through one of the worst things a couple can go through, and we came out stronger.

Kaley Cuoco Says She Doesn’t ‘Need’ Her Husband For Anything—And That’s A Good Thing

“If Karl left me tomorrow, I’d be fine.”

Kaley Cuoco’s doctor is upset with her. A few weeks afterThe Big Bang Theory star’s post-wedding shoulder surgery this summer, she began posting videos of her one-arm workouts. They included squats and hauling what looks like a giant sled across a parking lot as she sweats and makes the kind of fierce warrior face even an actress can’t fake.

In person, Kaley is a friendly, thoughtful, blonde ball of sunshine. She greets me warmly in her adorable office wearing leggings, a tee, Givenchy slip-ons—she can’t bend down to tie shoes while her shoulder heals—and a baseball cap. She’s got hummus, veggies, fruit, and water laid out. She looks strong and healthy.

It’s just…she’s not a huge fan of the brace she’s supposed to wear, so she sneaks it off now and then.

Kaley’s doctor isn’t the only person irked by her workout videos lately. Because she’s a star of one of the most-watched shows in the world, and because some people view women’s bodies as public property, the Instagram comments aren’t pretty.

Lots of folks think she looks great. Others are angry at her for—gasp!—not wearing a bra in one of the post-surgery vids. One observer advises Kaley that breasts are for a woman’s husband and for feeding children. So how does the 32-year-old actress handle that level of scrutiny without freaking out? Well, she’s been wildly famous since TBBT began its run in 2007, so she’s been in this game for a minute. (The show’s 12th and final season will end in 2019.)

How Rose McGowan escaped the horror of Hollywood and then set it alight

“We have to look at the origin story and demolish it. The Bible, religion, and Hollywood.”

When she was a professional actor, Rose McGowan says she changed her voice for every role. For Charmed, the WB sitcom about witches that she starred in between 2001 and 2006, she adopts a high-pitched, girlish inflection. In the 1999 dark teen comedy Jawbreaker, she uses a more forthright tone that draws itself out from her chest, with a dash of sarcastic vocal fry.

On the audiobook version of her 2017 memoir Brave, she speaks in what she says is her real voice. It has a deeper resonance than she ever had in the movies, and reverberates with the memory of the traumatic experiences she describes. She tells of her neglectful parents, an abusive boyfriend, and her demeaning early experiences as a teenager in Hollywood. Most notoriously, she claims she was raped by movie producer Harvey Weinstein. (Weinstein has denied any accusations of non-consensual sex.) Occasionally, her voice shatters under the weight of her subject; but mostly, it’s a constant push forward, solid and unrelenting.

By McGowan’s account, the recording was made in a room with publishing representatives and an engineer, all of whom were deeply uncomfortable. She describes it when we meet on a bright March afternoon in a London coffee shop that overlooks the sparkling Thames – and a construction site. (McGowan quips knowingly, “I like beauty with a little brutality.”) I tell her that listening to the book has been an intense and moving experience. It’s often, if I’m honest, too much – but that reaction makes me question where that instinct to call her “too much” may come from. Victims of abuse are often made to feel they should keep their trauma to themselves, for the sake of decorum or comfort – it’s another way we re-victimise people who have suffered.

Harvey Weinstein may have been Rose McGowan’s worst nightmare in 1997, when he allegedly raped her. Twenty years later, she would become his—spearheading the onslaught of charges against the producer. With the publication of her upcoming memoir, the actress discusses the web of cruelty and complicity that she is determined to expose.

I’ve had this giant monster strapped to me for 20 years,” says Rose McGowan, her voice gripped with defiance. “So many women have been strapped around him. He ate so many of our souls that he couldn’t tell which way was which. He’s always been gunning for me. But that’s O.K.—I’ve been gunning for him, too.”

The open bathrobes, the locked doors, the pinning against walls and bending over desks, the grabbing, groping, and forced masturbation-witnessing—the drumbeat of sexual-assault claims has become as familiar as President Trump’s tweets, giving rise to a disturbing question: Is our sense of shock becoming dulled? Amid the white noise, McGowan, who, with her accusations against movie producer Harvey Weinstein, helped start it all, has emerged as the movement’s white-hot voice of rage, determined to ensure that the #MeToo moment isn’t just a passing fad. She’s armed with a sizable Twitter following (literally called #RoseArmy), messianic certitude, and a sense of nothing to lose.

Her memoir, BRAVE, out this month, isn’t just about gunning for Weinstein. It’s calling out “all of them,” she says, the whole eco-system of Hollywood—the purveyors, the consumers, the media, the fans. Her argument is told via her personal story, which by any measure is extraordinary. Born in Italy into a cult called Children of God, which practiced free love and forced women into public flirting to attract followers, McGowan eventually fled with her family to America. Here, her parents having split up, she bounced between the homes of her psychologically cruel father and her mother, who continued to attach herself to abusive men. She did a stint in rehab, became a homeless runaway at age 13, and by 15 was living in Los Angeles, where she was taken in by a wealthy Beverly Hills kid who became her boyfriend, the first in a line of wolves in sheep’s clothing. As she puts it, another cult awaited her: Hollywood.

Brian heeft vorig jaar een film genaamd ‘Micheal and Me’ geregiseerd om meer aandacht te krijgen voor het groot aantal daklozen in Amerika. Hierdoor staat hij deze maand o.a. op de cover van het blad ‘City To Country Magazine’

We want to put a face to homelessness in America. Not that this is the only face, but certainly one of many. The story; inspired by true events, chronicles an unlikely friendship, where one man learns that he is valued and the other learns what value is: the power of human connection. We will make a uplifting film about hope and friendship, and will partner with backers who share the same passion to elevate awareness that we are all one people, one community, one world. Homeless R people 2.
