Christian Actress Explains the Real-Life Story Behind Her New Multigen Film

by | Aug 30, 2019 | Woman

Catching Faith actress and writer Alexandra Boylan wanted to do something a bit different for her new project, Catching Faith 2, which releases on DVD Sept. 3, 2019. For Boylan, a multi-generational story seemed to connect with her because of her past and her passion for caring for others.

“I think a lot of people can relate; a lot of people are caring for their parents while they’re still trying to care for their kids, you know, [the] elderly,” Boylan said.

The first Catching Faith movie follows the Taylor family and their daily ups and downs. After debating on starting the sequel with a new family, Boylan felt prompted to continue the Taylor family’s narrative.

“[My team] really look[s] at it like a three-woman generation story,” Boylan explained. “‘Where would Alexa Taylor be four years later while her kids have gone to college, and she’s caring for her mother?’ We were like, ‘What if she’s caring for her mother, who now has dementia, and then her daughter comes home and wants to get married?’ That was where the heart of [the movie] started, with [a] three-women generation, a woman trying to care for her mother and also be a mother to her daughter at the same time.”

Boylan’s mother painted a great picture of what it means to have a servant attitude to those in different generations.

“My mother took care of my grandfather with dementia for 10 years in our home.” Boylan finds that not enough people talk about the changes in life’s seasons, so she wanted the camera and script to reflect that. “We wanted to show that people are not alone,” she added.
