Set in Los Angeles, The End of Love is an intimate, honest and raw portrait of a young father (played by writer/director Mark Webber) in transition between the life he’s been working for and the one that’s already waiting for him. When the mother of his two-year-old son Isaac (played by Webber’s real-life son) suddenly passes away, the struggling actor is forced to face his inability to grow up and begins to realize that he can no longer remain in denial about the real-life consequences that his choices have.
During this recent exclusive phone interview with Collider, actress Shannyn Sossamon – who plays Lydia, a young single mother that Mark finds himself drawn to – talked about why she wanted to get involved with this unique project, how exciting it is to work without a set script and be able to improvise the dialogue, how they determined just what kind of character Lydia would be, how being a mother herself made her really comfortable about working with the young children in the film, and how inspiring Mark Webber was to work with. She also talked about her role on the new ABC drama series Mistresses, premiering on May 27th, what she enjoys about working on television, her short film for Jaguar with Damian Lewis (Homeland), and her upcoming feature film The Jesuit, with Tim Roth. Check out what she had to say after the jump.
