What has Simona said about Behind Her Eyes?

Speaking about her role, Louise told BT: “Louise is quite relatable. She is a single mother who pours all of her life into her son, to the point where she has kind of forgotten herself and who she is. I think she lacks confidence and is self-deprecating, but is also very likeable.

“She puts on a brave face like all is fine when she is really a mess and has past trauma which she hasn’t quite got over that manifests in night terrors she experiences quite regularly."

"So, not only is she dealing with being a single mum and divorcee, she is also dealing with these night terrors and ploughing through what is a normal, mundane and cyclical life."

Then she meets this mysterious man on a rare night out and it is the formula of a rom-com. You think it’s going to be romantic and amazing but he abruptly ends their kiss and disappears into the night with no explanation, leaving her confidence even lower.

"She later finds out that he is her new boss and she is meant to be his secretary, and the story then unfolds."
