“She’s the girl Romeo dated before Romeo met Juliet at the Capulets masked ball, and she throughout the course of the film tries to separate the two of them to save her own relationship with Romeo,” Dever explained, in a generic interview accessed by Filo.news. I always thought it was very special, to tell a story that we know but from a different angle and a different perspective. It’s modernized,” reflected the actress, who previously starred in series such as “Inconceivable” for Netflix or “Justified.”
