MOMMY’S LITTLE BOY
Paul Popowich is the best thing to come out of Canada since poutine and maple syrup. He is handsome, talented and one of the sweetest men in the world. He most recently starred in Mommy’s Little Boy with Bree Williamson and proved that he is not only an incredible actor, but someone that can pull you into whatever story he is telling by one simple look.
In the movie, Paul plays Michael Davis, a teacher and coach of Eric. He gets involved in Eric’s life and ends up having an ethics crisis when it comes to dealing with how to handle his abusive situation. He says the role was interesting to play and that it really got him thinking about how things like this are and should be handled in real life. His passion for the role was incredible and he admits that due to the situation at hand, it was not an easy role to play. However, he managed to pull it off in such a way that he captivated the audience and got them feeling the same things he was when dealing with this delicate situation.
However, the best part of this was hearing how passionate Paul became about the role and dealing with the issue of abuse. We actually got into an interesting discussion about the topic and how it should be handled in schools and in other real life situations. He hopes that people who see the movie get to thinking about these issues and figure out how to deal with them in a proper manner. The fact that the role seemed to get to him so much warmed my heart and showed me what a compassionate and loving person he is, making me an even bigger fan than I was before.
