“The Caller”, Moyer’s Newest Film Hit Theaters August 26:
Stephen Moyer recently interviewed with shockya.com about his newest movie that just premiered in select theaters. The Caller, directed by Matthew Parkhill, tells the story of a lady named Mary (Rachelle Lefevre) who has just recently been granted a divorce from her abusive husband. Moyer plays the role of Mary’s new boyfriend, John. After moving into her new apartment, she begins to receive random phone calls from a lady named Rose that she didn’t know previously. Rose and Mary begin to form a bond together over their failed relationships, and eventually Rose reveals that she has been calling Mary from the past. Mary doesn’t believe her and from that point on attempts to avoid Rose’s calls. Eventually, Rose begins taking revenge on Mary for ignoring her and choosing John over her.
During the interview Moyer was asked why he was originally interested in playing Mary’s abusive ex-husband in the film, but eventually decided that the role of her new boyfriend, John, was a better fit for him. Moyer’s response:
“I felt like the ex-husband was a little dark. I had just come out of a season (of True Blood) with Bill being dark, and I felt like I should do something a little bit more nice, a little bit more ordinary. I really liked the fact that he’s the one central figure in Mary’s life in the movie that’s a warm one. It takes her a while for her to trust him, but ultimately, she does trust him. I really liked the kind of dynamic of that.”
Some other questions asked during the interview were; How did you prepare for the role of John? When Mary first tells John that Rose is claiming to be calling from the past, why do you think it’s important that he doesn’t believe her? For the full interview click the link below!
