Tomorrow, Lifetime premieres the third film in its “Summer of Secrets” lineup, Left for Dead: The Ashley Reeves Story
. The film is based on real events and tells the story of 17-year-old Ashley Reeves (Anwen O’Driscoll), who was left for dead in the woods, where she lay for thirty hours after a brutal attack. Reeves was left with no memory of the event and had to learn how to walk and talk again. The film also stars Jennie Garth as Ashley’s mother, Michelle.
Recently, stars, Garth and O’Driscoll, and director, Gloria Ui Young Kim, took part in a press conference with journalists to promote the film.
O’Driscoll talked to Jamie Ruby of SciFi Vision about working on her and Garth’s relationship in the film and trying to meet outside of filming. “I mean, it was hard to do a lot, because there were COVID restrictions, of course, but we did have a get together, Gloria, Jennie, and I, one time beforehand, where we talked through everything and talked through our characters and the journey of the edge and had dinner one time. But it wasn't too much, because of COVID going on. We did a lot of it on set, which was great.”
The director added that they all also bonded over Garth’s dog, who she brought to set.
