Lydia Hearst has a particular affinity towards the roles she plays in her acting career.
With many past projects, she starred in various horror and thriller films from a horror film like Cabin Fever 3: Patient Zero to supernatural films with Between Worlds and The Haunting of Sharon Tate.
In Lifetime Channel’s Psycho Sister-In-Law, Hearst expands her acting chops into a vengeful deranged woman in this thriller. Not to mention, it is a leading role for the actress rather than a supporting role.
Here’s the synopsis of the film:
Haley and Nick Downes are a happy, successful young couple pregnant with their first baby, but when Nick’s father dies unexpectedly, his estranged sister Zara suddenly shows up to town with a diabolical plan in store to make the baby and their father’s fortune her own.
The film also stars Brandon Eaton, Andrea Bowen, and Diora Baird.
