Bree Williamson as Briana Wilson
Lifetime's newest movie is Mommy's Little Boy, which debuts on Saturday, March 18 at 8 p.m. ET. The film stars Bree Williams on as Briana Wilson, a mother troubled by her favorite son's drowning. After her depression and alcoholism puts her on a violent path, she commits murder and enlists her others on, 10-year-old Eric, to help cover it up before they go on the run. This also forces Eric to betray his baseball coach, Michael, who has become a much-needed father figure after his brother's death. The film was directed by Curtis Crawford and written by Christine Conradt, the same team that gave us Mommy's Little Girl.
In an interview with Seat42F, Williamson said she's never played a character like Briana before, which was appealing to her. "Briana is a very damaged character, which are always the most rewarding and entertaining to play. And also any chance to shoot in Canada, I’ll take it," the Canadian actress said.
Williamson is best known for plating Jessica Brennan on One Life To Live from 2004 to 2012 and Claudette Boland on General Hospital. She has also appeared in the TV movies Love You to Death, A Mother Betrayed and Portrait of Love. Click through to meet her Mommy's Little Boy co-stars. (Bree Williamson Instagram)
