Joey McIntyre on His Role as Michael Sutton in Lifetime’s “Dawn”
In an interview for TV Line (which took place before SAG-AFTRA officially announced a strike on July 13), Joey McIntyre talked about the relationship of his character Michael Sutton with his student Dawn.
“It does takes place in the 1970s. It was a different world (…) Obviously, we’re still slowly reckoning with this misogynistic… this power that he really played over her. She is very young, so I think in that world, you can understand why she would have made those choices, and why he really took advantage of her.”Joey McIntyre for TV Line
