That said, the other night, my husband and I watched Safe Haven. I didn’t recognize the lead guy (Josh Duhamel), so when I saw him, I was kind of surprised. He looks EXACTLY like my character in Burn (an unpublished novel), Ian MacDermott. EXACTLY. The entire movie, I couldn’t get over how much he talked like him, moved like him, looked like him — it was almost eerie.
The director over the entire group put a hand to her chest and said, “Doesn’t it just break your heart?”
To which I replied, “It might, if she hadn’t practiced that for two hours today. She used a hand mirror and once she got the face right, she used a mirror in her room and watched herself walk away with several angles. She’s been waiting for an opportunity to do it all night and knew she couldn’t sit with me.”Pin It
