Courtney Cox thinks she can relate to her character in the upcoming Starz series Shining Vale. The actress, 57, plays best-selling novelist Pat Phelps in the horror comedy series, who is unhappy with her life 17 years after the release of her hit book.
Pat and his family relocate from Brooklyn to suburban Connecticut as Pat struggles to mend her marriage to husband Terry, played by Greg Kinnear, while raising her two teenage children. However, Pat encounters a ghost, played by Mira Sorvino, who can only be seen by her. Cox told the Los Angeles Times in an article published Sunday that portraying Pat has given her “so many opportunities” to express herself through art. “Going through a midlife crisis — I understand that,” the Friends alum told the outlet according to PEOPLE.
She added: “Being at that point in life where, we don’t want to say the word ‘menopause’, but that’s what she’s dealing with.” However, coxswain has played a variety of roles, including Gale Weathers in the Scream film trilogy and divorced Jules Cobb in the comedy Cougar Town. The actor, on the other hand, thinks his role in Shining Vale is quite different from his previous work. She said, “This role helped me find new excitement.”
Interesting way, coxswain met acting coach Nancy Banks through former Friends co-star Jennifer Aniston to learn the role, which she says helped reinvigorate her as an actress. Meanwhile, Shining Vale airs March 6 on Starz.
