Fans who have enjoyed watching Hayley Erin deliver Emmy-winning performances as Kiki on General Hospital and now Claire on The Young & The Restless can finally enjoy the actress in her first movie, New Life, which premieres in select theaters and streaming Friday, May 3!

“I’m so excited,” Erin enthused to Soaps In Depth. “It’s my first film and we shot it in 2022. It’s a really interesting genre-defying female-led real character piece. I just had the best time filming it and I’m so proud of the finished project. It’s got a little something for everyone and it takes some unexpected twists and turns. So I highly recommend going in blind and just buckling up. It is a roller coaster.”

New Life stars Erin as Jessica Murdock, a mysterious young woman on the run, and Sonya Walger as Elsa Gray, the fixer assigned to bring her in. But as the two women’s parallel paths become intertwined, the stakes rise to apocalyptic proportions.

“It’s a really interesting new take on this cat and mouse, the suspect on the run and the law enforcement officer who’s in pursuit,” Erin previewed. “[Writer/director John Rosman] has done a really beautiful thing crafting this narrative where the storylines are so beautifully parallel for the two characters experiencing completely different things. And it’s just really well done in the way that you watch it and there’s no clear hero and there’s no clear villain. Everyone is just so human and dealing with these really big life changes.

“It’s really exciting and I’m so proud of it,” she added. “And it’s a really touching, touching story. It can be gruesome in parts — heads up — but there’s such a huge emotional payoff that I highly recommend it.”

New Life is receiving a limited theatrical release, but it can also be bought or rented from Amazon or iTunes as well as other streaming services. And while Erin suggests that viewers go in as blind as possible to fully enjoy all the twists and turns the film has to offer, she’s okay if you watch the trailer below! “I think the trailer was really well-crafted,” she confided. “It doesn’t really give away too much. I feel like usually when you watch a trailer now, it’s like you’ve seen the whole thing. So they did a great job with that.”
