Molly Shannon, More of Me
The very funny Molly Shannon pulls off comedy and romance, playing an overwhelmed career mom in the fanciful Lifetime movie More of Me (Saturday, Nov. 17, 9 pm/ET). We recently chatted with the actress, who's in the midst of an incredibly busy year of her own.
TV Guide: Tell us about the film.Molly Shannon: It's about a [working] mother. She has two children, she is married — she's really busy and wishes that there was more of her to go around. She starts to lose it with the pressure to be everything [and] ends up literally splitting into three versions of herself.
TV Guide: Is this a character you can relate to? Shannon: Oh my god, yes. You think you can do it all... easier said than done. I'm an actress and also a mother of two toddlers. It's a real balancing act.
