Heather Callahan-Stevens Talks About The Tempted


Q: What is The Tempted?

Heather: It s a one-woman dramatic presentation written and directed by Stephen Mitchell. It is the equivalent of doing a one-act play in which I am the only actor and looks into an unexpected primal and emotional reaction she is having to someone in her life.


Q: How did you interpret the role?

Heather: I see her as a woman who has safeguarded herself by building a wall around every possible emotion that could upset her equilibrium, but that turns out to be an imperfect defense and she is rendered entirely vulnerable within a fraction of a second.


Q: What is the theme of The Tempted?

Heather: The story makes the point that whatever you have built your defenses to guard against will ultimately determine the battle you are destined to fight. One of life’s cruel ironies. She never again wanted to be raw and exposed to the seductive powers of a man and wouldn’t you know, it is exactly the turmoil she has invited into her life.


Q: Where can the project be seen?

Heather: The Tempted is coming soon to streaming video and DVD on Amazon.com.
