‘Addicted’ Star William Levy Talks New Film in People En Español
Gorgeous Cuban-American actor William Levy (Single Mom’s Club) covers the September 2014 issue of People En Español, where he speaks on his role in Lionsgate’s upcoming erotic psychological drama/thriller, Addicted.
“My character is so incredible,” the 33-year-old tells People. “So complete. He’s one of the most complete characters one can play in a movie.”
He portrays a painter named Quentin Matthews, who falls in love with Zoe Reynard, (played by Sharon Leal (Why Did I Get Married Too?)), a successful, married African-American businesswoman who is also a sex addict.
Finding a therapist to help her, Zoe finally finds the courage to tell her torrid story — a tale of guilt and desire.
“This woman has this addiction. My character knows, falls in love, there comes a point where they want to take the relationship a little further to be seen in the evenings,” he says.
Directed by Bille Woodruff with screenplay by Christina Welsh and Ernie Barbarash, Addicted is adapted from erotic fiction writer Zane‘s popular novel of the same name.
The film also stars Boris Kodjoe (Baggage Claim), Tasha Smith (Jumping the Broom), Tyson Beckford (Biker Boyz), Emayatzy Corinealdi (Middle of Nowhere), and Kat Graham (Vampire Diaries).
Addicted will hit theaters nationwide on October 10, 2014. Check out the latest trailer below.
