Make way for Lily Sheen - and also a brand new subseries of Collider Ladies Night called Collider Ladies Night Pre-Party! In an effort to shine an even bigger spotlight on emerging talent, we’re expanding the Ladies Night brand to include a series of stripped-down long-form interviews with industry newcomers to give you the opportunity to get to know them, learn more about their first big projects, and to get a sense of their career goals moving forward. No games, no cutaways — just an in-depth conversation focusing on the guest’s passion for their craft and future ambitions. And who better to start with than Lily Sheen? Someone who’s had a foot in the industry her entire life courtesy of her parents, Kate Beckinsale and Michael Sheen, and is now breaking out on her own with a major role in The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent.
The movie stars Nicolas Cage as a fictional version of himself. Not only is he struggling to find fulfilling work and pay off some serious debt, but Nic is also drifting away from his daughter, Sheen’s Addy. He desperately wants to share all of his passions with her, but has a hard time understanding and staying open-minded when she expresses different interests. In an attempt to make progress with one of those challenges, Nic reluctantly accepts a $1 million offer to attend a superfan’s (Pedro Pascal) birthday party in Mallorca. However, while there, Nic is shocked to find a kindred spirit who shares his love of storytelling, and also someone who inspires him to prioritize other elements of his life, like his family.
With The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent in theaters nationwide, Sheen helped us kick off Collider Ladies Night Pre-Party with a 20-minute conversation covering her journey in the industry thus far. Enjoy!
