EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW – Nicole Moller Discusses Donna’s Journey on Lifetime’s My Husband’s Worst Mistake!

What drew you to the role of Donna in “My Husband’s Worst Mistake”? How did you prepare for the character?

NICOLE MOLLER: I wanted to tell the story from Donna’s point of view; everyone is the hero of their own story, especially in Donna’s case. I’m drawn to antagonists and I’ve learned to completely let go of any judgement of the character so I can explore her objectively for who she is, for better or for worse. 

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

Donna is always one to keep you on your toes. The audience meets her through these fleeting moments that leave you with more questions than answers— always wondering if you ever truly know her. She was such a pleasure to play, I’d love to see her character expanded one day and see what chaos she’s been sowing since.

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

There’s something so human about keeping secrets and, of course, spilling them. These are complicated relationships audiences can really sink their teeth into: their flawed humanity is what we connect with. No matter what twists the story takes, whether we admit it or not, we all know someone who’s behaved like Donna or Sarah in a relationship.

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

Since you only ever meet her through the eyes of Kent, Donna is able to show the side of her she wants you to see. You never truly know which side of her you’ll get. There’s one juicy moment in particular between Kent and my character where he’s forced to discover that his ill-fated choices have lasting consequences.

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

Donna is a woman who takes what she wants and prioritizes her own well-being above all else. We’re very different people, which is what makes her so fun to play, but whether you’re in a competitive industry, angling for a new promotion, or just need a boost of unfettered confidence, we all face challenges where we need to bring out our inner Donna.

“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?

We crave familiarity in stories— we want to see something that’s relatable yet also puts us totally outside our comfort zones. Every family has secrets. We’ve all faced temptation or had to fight for those we love. The dynamics we’re familiar with, cleverly paired with complex character work and gripping storytelling are what audiences will remember.

Can you tease any upcoming twists or surprises that viewers can look forward to in the film?

The story turns traditional power dynamics on its head, forcing you to cast aside everything you thought you knew about lust, control, and desire. Plus, you should never trust a smooth-talking brunette who can hold her liquor.

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

A Room Without A View just premiered at Lighthouse International Film Festival. It was my debut in producing and is currently doing the festival circuit. You can look out for it streaming online later this year.
