EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW – Angelica Alejandro Discusses Carly’s Journey on Lifetime’s My Husband’s Worst Mistake!

What drew you to the role of Carly in “My Husband’s Worst Mistake”?

ANGELICA ALEJANDRO: Carly is that Best Friend you want in your corner. That is something I think we all can relate to. Who doesn’t want that friend who is your biggest cheerleader, who believes in you, supports you, encourages you and always has your back? What I can relate to is that when times get tough. Like Carly I will go to any lengths for my friends and won’t let them go through a tough time on their own.

How did you prepare for the character?

This was such a fun one to prepare for as I related to her in many ways, because I have been that friend in similar situations that you see Carly with Sarah (played by Sarah Cleveland) in. I guess in that sense you can say that it was a little like that phrase “life imitating art”. Our Director (Roxanne Boisvert) was amazing, as she let both Sarah and I really play and develop that friendship. We got to show these two wonderful and strong female characters, who are trying to deal with life, motherhood and relationships the best way they can.

Can you tell us about Carly’s journey throughout the film? How does she evolve and what challenges does she face?

She is protective of her friend and she wants to be there for her and support her, without overstepping and telling her what to do. Part of her feels that things may not be right, but Carly sees her friend happy and doesn’t want to upset that. She wants Sarah to live life after some heartbreak, but struggles with this as she may have pushed her too soon and Carly comes to second guess her well intentioned advice to her best friend.

“My Husband’s Worst Mistake” explores complex relationships and secrets. What can viewers expect from the show in terms of suspense and drama?

Without giving too much away there is plenty of drama and suspense. It is no surprise from the movie trailer that relationships are tested – the romantic ones and familial ones. You have characters that are heavily in the midst of that turmoil and then there are characters that try to help them through it, however you also have some that unfortunately get caught in the crossfire.

How would you describe the dynamic between Carly and the other characters in the series? Are there any particularly memorable scenes or interactions?

Playing Sarah’s (played by Sarah Cleveland) onscreen Best Friend was easy, as right from the start it was as if we were already friends. Sarah is so wonderful, talented and such a joy to be around. When you are fortunate enough to get to work with someone you click with and have that chemistry with, creating these relationships is so rewarding. We got to breathe life into Sarah and Carly and take the characters off the page and really create that bond. It is also very sweet that our onscreen daughters are also best friends. We have to thank our Director (Roxanne Boisvert) and Casting (Ilona Smyth) for putting us together.

What aspects of Carly’s personality do you find most interesting or relatable? Were there any specific traits or experiences that resonated with you?

Carly is that person you want in your life. She is assured in who she is, in that sense a strong female influence, she isn’t afraid to speak her mind, she is successful and wants the best for those around her. Her work/life balance may need a little help, but she is human and knows she can make mistakes. Which is why I find it interesting as I had mentioned earlier, that she wants her friend to be happy but also second guesses as to whether her advice is good.

I can relate from the sense that you always want the best for your friends and family, you want to protect them. However caring for someone doesn’t mean that you have all the answers, or that you need to make sure they never make the wrong choice. What matters most, is that they know you are there for them in good and bad times and that you won’t abandon them.

“My Husband’s Worst Mistake” is part of Lifetime’s lineup of gripping dramas. How does the show stand out from other similar series in the genre?

If you haven’t watched the movie trailer yet, watch it. I think what makes it stand out is that some of what you see you play out on screen, you hope never could happen to you, but then you think and wonder if it could. All it takes is one mistake.

Lastly, what can we expect from you in the future? Are there any other exciting projects you’re currently working on?

Actually I am coming off from a starring role in a stage play and these next few weeks are the first break I have had in a while. I start my next project next month. I also have a few films coming out and making rounds on the film festival circuit, with some currently in post-production that are being released at the end of the year. On a more personal note, I am really excited to be taking a few weeks in the fall to go to Europe and one of the stops is going back to Italy, something I am really looking forward to.
