Holly Deveaux, Matthew Dowden, and Jason Cermak star in Cradle of Deception, a new, original movie premiered Thursday May 23th at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Lifetime Movie Network. We at Survived the Shows had the incredible chance to speak with lead Jason Cermak, who teased Lifetime’s Cradle of Deception and his experience in the movie. Check out the full interview in the video below!

Can you tell us a bit about your character in Cradle of deception?

Doctor Jackson Walker is his name, and he’s based on an actual doctor. There is a Netflix documentary kind of called our Father, which is roughly based on what this was based on. And I’m a fertility clinic doctor but he’s been basically, there’s an old method of infertility clinics of using the doctors, using their own samples for impregnating these women. And the thing is that I am doing the same thing, but I’m not notifying my patients. That’s what I’m doing. So Holly Deveaux’s character has a husband that has passed away, and she was using his sample that she believed to have a child. And there’s just some inconsistencies with the baby, and she kind of digs deep into trying to figure out what’s going on.

What initially attracted you to your role in Cradle of deception?

Just the fact it was based on a real story. I did started doing some research onto the real case, and these sort of things wouldn’t have been uncovered in the days before genealogy testing the DNA in Ancestry.com and stuff has really kind of open this up for people. And just what I learned from the siblings that have run these tests, just knowing, you know, they wanted to find out a little bit about their family histories and to realize they have 97 siblings, really, it’s kind of like ignorance is bliss in a certain degree because it’s really affected their lives. A lot of them in a very negative way, but a lot of them just being able to connect with other siblings is just a really profound story and so I was interested in the subject matter for sure.
