Wendy Williams: Drea De Matteo Stalkers
To refresh your memory of Drea de Matteo, she played Adriana Le Cerva on The Sopranos and then Joey’s sister on Joey. She had a small cameo on a recent episode of The Mindy Project as an obsessive and paranoid pregnant woman. She’s had a variety of other roles on shows like Sons of Anarchy and Desperate Housewives.
Stalkers is based on a true story of an uncouth cop and pristine district attorney who team up and go after a stalker. The film is about the prosecutor who wrote the law on stalking in California. The film premieres on Lifetime on April 13.
De Matteo said she drew her character inspiration from personal experience. She and several of her friends were stalked at one time. She told NY Daily News that she only takes roles that she can relate to. She said she has played a lot of women who are scared and this role lets her kick some criminal butt.
