We recently told you about a situation where an older industry man is dominating or controlling his younger girlfriend’s career.
This story offers a little twist on that theme.
Friends are worried about this successful, foreign-born young actor.
His partner is twice his age and he now parents an entire brood of children.
He is thinking of quitting the business.
She has always been like a Svengali to him, starting when he was a teenager and she was his boss.
He loves acting and his career should be at peak right now, and he has, in fact, received a dozen offers in the past year.
Yet he won’t take them on because she has convinced him that it is his responsibility to stay home and care for the children (including her children from a previous relationship) so she can go off and work on her own projects.
It is like she is like the mum and he is the compliant child.
He does not even think for himself anymore.
He is killing his career to please her.
By the way, when we say young, we mean YOUNG.
Our handsome actor is still in his twenties!
