Who does Simona Brown play in Netflix’s Behind Her Eyes?
Simona plays Louise, a single mother and divorced woman who is having an affair with her psychiatrist boss David (played by Tom Bateman).
Unfortunately, Louise’s dream man is married.
Her life takes a strange turn when she later befriends his wife Adele (Bono’s daughter Eve Hewson) and finds herself caught in a web of secrets and lies where nothing is what it seems.
Louise is also plagued by night terrors, which manifests itself from a past trauma that adds to her turbulence.
The series is based on Sarah Pinborough’s bestseller.
Simona tells us: “Louise is pretty relatable. She is a single mom who pours her whole life into her son, to the point where she has somehow forgotten herself and who she is.
“She makes a brave face as if everything would be fine when she’s really upset and has a past trauma that she has not fully overcome and that manifests itself in night terrors, which she experiences fairly regularly.”
