Character Interviews – The Villains
What is your relationship to Gianna?
Josh: I was her boyfriend until that stepbrother of hers broke us up.
Julie: I’m her mother, the person who loves her most.
What do you want more than anything?
Josh: For Gianna to understand she’s mine.
Julie: For life to be perfect, an adoring husband and wonderful, successful children.
What would be the perfect day for you?
Josh: Having Gianna all to myself, where no one can take her from me and she realizes that we belong together.
Julie: The day Gianna meets the perfect man deserving of her beauty. He’d be handsome and wealthy, of course.
Why do you want to break up Caleb and Gianna?
Josh: Because she belongs to me. The thought of him touching her drives me insane, but I’ll show her how she was wrong.
Julie: My stepson is a loser criminal. I’ve tried my best for his father’s sake, but my daughter is much too good for him. She can do so much better and I intend to see that she does.
Do you feel that you may be a tad obsessive and controlling?
Josh: That’s what my psychiatrist says, but Gianna belongs to me. How can I be controlling when she’s already mine?
Julie: She’s my daughter. As her mother I have a say in what happens in her life and what’s best for her.
What are your plans for the future?
Josh: Gianna is my future, once I teach her the error of her ways.
