Jana Kramer, Austin Nichols and Clark Moore star in the movie Gaslit by my Husband: The Morgan Metzer Story‘ premiering on Lifetime Channel on Sunday June 9th, 2024 at 8/7c. We at Survived The Shows had the incredible chance to talk with star Clark Moore, who teased the movie and his experience in Gaslit by my Husband: The Morgan Metzer Story. Check out the full interview below!

Can you tell us a bit about your character in Gaslit by My Husband?

In the movie, I play Griffith Walker, a dad who’s just lost his wife and is grappling with the pain. He’s heartbroken but knows he has to keep going for his kids, who are too young to handle this loss alone. Despite his own struggles, his love for them keeps him moving forward.

What initially attracted you to your role in Gaslit by My Husband?

I usually play characters that are relatively stoic in nature, or at least that’s how I see them. The character I play in this movie, Griffith Walker, is a man broken by the loss of his wife. There was something about the role that scared me, perhaps the thought of whether or not I could pull it off. I’d have to say it was the challenge of it that attracted me to the role.

What do you think makes this movie so special and captivating?

The fact that this movie is based on a true story makes it special. Unfortunately I don’t think what Morgan Metzer, Jana’s character, went through is all that uncommon in our society. A story like this is important in order to bring about attention and awareness for people who are in a situation where psychological abuse is taking place.

What do you hope audiences take away from watching Gaslit by My Husband?

I hope audiences take away the importance of community and getting one’s story out there. I think it’s important, just as I mentioned before, for awareness and to bring these issues to light. I think people will relate, because to some extent we all have negative people in our lives. And as hopeless as it can be, albeit probably not as extreme as in the movie, there is something we can do about it. We all need positive people in our lives, and that makes most situations rise to a level that we like we aren’t helpless.

What was it like working with the rest of the cast on set?

Well, all of my scenes were with Jana, so she is the only one I can comment on when it comes to the cast. Jana was awesome both on and off set. She nailed her role with such ease and professionalism, it was inspiring to watch. She made everything look effortless and was always in her element. Off set, she was a total gem—funny, down-to-earth, and super relatable. She’s not just talented, but also really smart. Everyone loved hanging out with her. All in all, she’s just amazing.

What was your favorite scene or moment while filming Gaslit by My Husband?

I think my favorite scene was the one where I first meet Jana’s character, Morgan Metzer. It was such an emotional moment, but also really fun because we were switching between deep emotions and just being aware and grateful for the present. It was this cool mix of intense and lighthearted. I loved how we could dive into the feelings and then step back and appreciate the moment. It really made the scene special for me. I always feel so lucky to be on set acting. It’s those moments that remind me why I love what I do.

At Survived the Shows, we are big fans of Christmas comedies. What is your all-time favorite?

This is probably cliche, but Christmas Vacation has to be my favorite Christmas Comedy. My brothers and I made it a point to watch it at least twice each Christmas season growing up. We were constantly repeating the lines from the movie. I mean how could you not, there are so many good lines in that movie. From “Can’t see the line can you Russ!?” to “Looks good. Little Full. Lotta Sap!” It’s hilarious. It’s a Classic.

Change of subject – what have been some of the most memorable projects you have worked on throughout your career, and why?

Two of the most memorable projects I worked on have been Women of the Movement and Yellowstone. In Women of the Movement I was surrounded by unbelievable talent and got to work in a part of the country where those historical events of the Civil Rights movement actually took place. And for Yellowstone, it was probably one of the most costly scenes of the opening episodes of season 5. A scene that required dozens of horses and crew members, not to mention production vehicles and even 2 helicopters. Also getting to act opposite Luke Grimes while on horseback wasn’t bad either.

Can you tease something about your next projects?

I don’t have plans to do any more Lifetime movies in the future, but I am looking forward to a role which hasn’t been announced yet. Without giving away too much, it will be an ensemble cast and you will be seeing alot of me in it.

Gaslit by my Husband: The Morgan Metzer Story” starring Clark Moore will premiere on Sunday, June 9th on Lifetime Channel.
