US actor Bobby Cannavale recalls ‘personal connection’ to ‘The Watcher’ series

Bobby Cannavale, who stars in a new Netflix series about a family who moves into their dream home only to be plagued by ominous letters, has recalled a similar personal experience.

he Will And Grace actor, 52, stars alongside Naomi Watts in The Watcher, which is based on the true story of Derek and Maria Broaddus.

The seven-part thriller sees the family’s dreams of settling in a new neighborhood shattered when a mysterious stalker known as The Watcher begins to terrorize them.

Cannavale told the PA news agency: “Two years ago we got a letter in our backyard, on our patio… it looked like it was written by a kid saying, ‘If you make the noise you’re going to have a problem ‘.

“It freaked me out.”

The US actor said he decided to keep it a secret from his partner, Australian actress Rose Byrne, who starred in Bad Neighbors with Seth Rogen, Dave Franco and Zac Efron.

He told PA: “When I first got it I freaked out in private. I didn’t let Rose know I found that letter, I was just really discussing it – should I go to anyone, what should I do, what the hell is this?

“If I tell Rose, she’s going to freak out and want to move, and I’ve really been through that mentally.”

Cannavale said he noticed the handwriting resembled cards he’d received from a neighboring family and thought, “I think that might be the little boy next door.

“In short, it turned out to be a prank that it was the neighbors’ children.

“But I was kind of freaking out at that moment, and then we sorted it out, but there was this feeling, ‘Does anyone know we live here?’

“It’s that fear of losing control, you can’t do anything about it, and that’s the worst part.

“We want to try to hold on to the things that we can control. It’s my only personal connection to that feeling.”

The series also stars Jennifer Coolidge, Margo Martindale, Christopher McDonald, Isabel Gravitt and Mia Farrow. US actor Bobby Cannavale recalls ‘personal connection’ to ‘The Watcher’ series
