On ONE LIFE TO LIVE, Nic Robuck played good guy James Ford, but in the new movie Dark Desire, he’s inhabiting a much darker character. Shane is a young man who has suffered a rough upbringing, and upon seeing his new college roommate’s family decides he’d like that kind of family for himself… or maybe that family in particular!
“His roommate takes him home and Shane kind of sees this family life that his best friend has that he’s always wanted,” says Robuck. “He really wants to become a part of that and is willing to do whatever it takes. And he kind of goes to desperate measures. He kind of seduces the mom and… some people die!”
And while OLTL fans are going to see a whole new side to the young actor, they’re also going to be seeing a whole lot more of him, too. “The mom is played by Kelly Lynch, who is just fantastic and talented and very, very sexy. I was nervous about having to be so… nude with this woman,” Robuck says with a chuckle. “But you know, you just don’t think about it. You go in for the kill and you do it. It was stressful, but it was well-directed and it looks great.”
Dark Desire will be debuting on Lifetime Movie Network this Friday, November 23, at 8:00 pm EST. “And it’s going to run like crazy through the holidays,” Robuck reports, “so it’ll be hard to miss. I’d love for people to tune in!”
