EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW: James Hyde Previews his new Lifetime movie ” Danger Lurking under my Roof ” – WATCH


The new Lifetime thriller movie, Danger Lurking under my Roof, is expected to air on the channel on Thursday, August 10th, 2023. We at Survived The Shows had the pleasure of chatting with star James Hyde about his experience in the making of Danger Lurking under my Roof and what fans can expect from the movie. 

Can you tell us a bit about your character?

James Hyde: We’re moving into this. I love how Lifetime movies are shot. We paint a picture of what life is like but then underneath there’s some darkness that’s going. I think that he’s the family man. He’s got a daughter and he’s married but I think underneath there’s a lot of pressure for him to make money. And money is one of the key factors in this that drives him to turn and start to do some of the stuff that he does but I think it’s coming from the pressure of his boss. They create these little things where families that are struggling, that are in transient they could move in with families. You know, maybe in an extra space in the house or whatever. So it’s a nonprofit organization that we run but in the underneath we’re kidnapping girls.

What initially attracted you to the role?

James Hyde: I was on a show for a long time and it was called Passions. It was on NBC. It ran from 1999 to like 2009 and on that 10 year run I was a family man. I was a cop, Chief of police is the moral compass of the show and I thoroughly enjoyed it. But after that I came back. We ended the show and my wife and I went to Puerto Rico for a year. We came back and I said I want to play different roles and different characters. So John Merlowski is the producer of this and I’ve probably shot now with John a lot of movies.

With John I have that kind of relationship that he sends over a role and probably I’m going to take it just because of the working relationship that I have with John Murlowski.

He is such a great guy and shoots great movies. Though I’ve played a wide range of characters with John and I like playing roles that are on the surface. It’s one thing, but then underneath it’s completely another. And these are fun to shoot.

I mean they’re fast and furious. I mean sometimes we’re shooting these in like 12 days and so he’s, he’s a pleasure to work with. He shoots a lot of movies and he knows the formula. It’s always fun to play a character that on the surface is one thing, but underneath these completely another. So I really enjoy those.
