Margie Mays and Alex Trumble star in the brand new rom-com movie Lucky Hearts, premiering Sunday, May 28 at 7 PM on UPtv. We at Survived The Shows had the incredible pleasure to chat with Shaun Boylan, who plays Murray, ahead of the premiere to discuss his experience in the movie and preview what fans can expect. Check out the full interview below!

Can you tell us a little bit about your character in the new Uptv movie Lucky Hearts?

SHAUN BOYLAN: I play Murray! He’s a lawyer and he is also Rosie-Ann’s cousin. Rosie-Ann needs a lawyer to help with her business woes and Murray arrives under the wire to back her up at the cosmetic convention.

What drew you to this project, and what made you want to get involved with the film?

I worked with Director John Murlowski and his crew in another film and it was a wonderful learning experience. I jumped at the opportunity to work with them again!

What do you think viewers can expect from the film, and why should they tune in to watch it?

Love, laughs and drama! The three ingredients for a great flick. It’s also a great story about a woman finding her strength and courage to take control of her destiny.

Did you have any particularly memorable experiences while filming the movie?

Working with John Murlowski is always a treat because he works so efficiently and effortlessly. I was also fortunate to be in a climactic scene with nearly the entire cast and it was so fun to watch the other actors get their moment to shine.

What was your favorite scene to film, and why?

I have a very small role in Lucky Hearts but I loved being in the last scene in the film. All the actors were on set that day and we had a ton of extras, it really felt like big moment and every hit their moments flawlessly.

What message do you hope viewers take away from the film?

Follow your dreams and do what you love!

How did you get into acting, and what inspired you to pursue a career in the entertainment industry?

The idea of being an entertainer was in my blood from a very young age staying up late to watch Saturday Night Live and Conan O’brien. I started pursuing my passion in college where I mostly performed live comedy, sketch and improv. I moved to Los Angeles soon after and after performing at festivals and theaters all over the country, I found an agent and manager who championed me and have been auditioning and acting ever since.

What have been some of your favorite roles to play throughout your career, and why?

I love comedies and comedy sketches, so any role I get to let loose and be a goofball is always a blast. I play a bumbling, rookie cop in the upcoming film American Meltdown and he is fun to play because he really shouldn’t be a cop yet he is responsible for investigating a petty crime.

Can you talk about any upcoming projects you have in the works?

I have a film coming out later this year called American Meltdown that I am really excited about. It’s a timely dark comedy about American society. The director Andrew Adams is an old friend and an amazing talent. I also have another film with John Murlowski coming out later this year called The Date Whisperer that I have a fun, small role in, and you can catch me on TV (HBO Max/Travel Channel/Discovery Plus) June 1st in Eli Roth Presents: The Legion of Exorcists.

What advice would you give to aspiring actors who are just starting out in the industry?

There is no right way to do it, just start doing it. Don’t wait for someone to help you, start acting, performing and creating right now! Also, invest in yourself. Be your biggest fan and don’t compare your path, or your successes and failures with any one else.

Lucky Hearts, starring Margie Mays, Alex Trumble and Shaun Boylan, premieres May 28 on UPtv. Get a preview below!
