Book summary: The Actress

2014 BY AMY SOHN

A talented young actress. A leading man. A sexy secret. The role of a lifetime.

In this big, juicy literary novel from bestselling author Amy Sohn, an ambitious young actress discovers that every marriage is a mystery, and that sometimes the greatest performances don’t take place on screen.

When Hollywood heartthrob Steven Weller pulls Maddy Freed out of obscurity for a starring part in his newest, Oscar-worthy film, she feels her career roaring onto the express track. Steven’s professional attention soon turns personal as they are thrown together amid Europe’s Old World charm, and Maddy allows herself to tumble headlong into a fairytale romance with the world’s most eligible bachelor. She knows there’s no truth to the gay rumors that have followed him for years, yet what is it that Steven sees in Maddy that he has not seen in his string of past girlfriends? Her beauty isn’t the sort to grace magazine covers, and she is clearly an outsider among the L.A. power elite.

Yet what is it that Steven sees in Maddy that he has not seen in his string of past girlfriends?

What Steven himself admits is that he is drawn to her stunning gift as an actress – her ability to inhabit a character so seamlessly, so convincingly, that it is nearly impossible to tell the reality from the role. Ultimately, as Maddy’s own happiness and success grow intertwined with her new husband’s, she cannot afford to ask too many questions about Steven’s complicated past. But can she ignore her inner voice and her instincts about her own worth?

Set in a tantalizing world of glamour and scandal, of red carpets and ruthless competition, of scheming agents and the prying eyes of the press, The Actress is a romantic, sophisticated page-turner about the price of ambition, the treachery of love, and the roles we all play.
