Miller faces every mom’s worst nightmare in new role
LONDON (Reuters) — Portraying a single mother whose teenage daughter suddenly disappears in “American Woman” was a “grueling” role for Sienna Miller that forced the BritishAmerican actress to imagine her worst nightmare.
Miller plays Debra, a 32-year old supermarket cashier whose daughter Bridget, a mother herself, fails to return home after a night out.
Set in rural Pennsylvania, the harrowing drama follows Debra over the course of 11 years as she looks after Bridget’s toddler son and faces personal hardships.
“It was grueling ... The idea of exploring that, the unimaginable, my worst nightmare, felt interesting and that being said when I agreed to do the film I was praying I wouldn’t have to because I started to dread what that would be and it was impossibly hard,” Miller told
Reuters in an interview.
