About The Movie:
Tired of her fast-paced life in the city, Sophie Carter travels to a small seaside town to disconnect and self-reflect, staying at an Airbnb run by a widowed father of a young girl. With a little nudging from the matchmaking daughter, Sophie and Michael unexpectedly start to fall in love and Sophie must decide between returning home or following her heart.
We had the opportunity to chat with star Ellen Woglom, about her role, what she hopes fans take away from the movie, and what’s next.
Kat: How did you prepare for your role in “Love at Sunset Terrace”? Did you find any similarities between yourself and your character?
Ellen: The turn around between casting and shooting is pretty tight, so there’s not a whole lot of time to prepare in advance, or as much as one may ideally like to. As for similarities between myself and Sophie, as is common with so many artistic mediums, I think it’s relatable and common to encounter times of feeling creatively stagnant or uncertain.
Kat: Was there anything about your role that was particularly challenging?
Ellen: I have to say, we got so lucky with such a warm & inviting cast & crew that it made the job a true pleasure. We also got really lucky with beautiful weather.
Kat: What were some of your favorite scenes to shoot and why?
Ellen: The kayak scene with Carlo and Erica was certainly the most fun to shoot. Any work day where I get to spray Carlo with water and beat him at a race is a good day.
Kat: What do you hope fans take away from the movie?
Ellen: I hope this movie encourages anyone feeling stuck or at a crossroads in life to have the courage to take a leap of faith and shake things up, even what’s on the other side is uncertain and unknown.
Kat: How have you been staying connected during Covid-19? How has it changed your job on a daily basis?
Ellen: Covid drastically impacted the entertainment industry. Filming completely shut down and is only now starting to slowly feel like it’s coming back, which I’m very grateful for and excited about. Luckily, I’ve been very fortunate to have a wonderful pod of neighbors who have kept me entertained, laughing and sane in 2020.
