Actress Sanaa Lathan Used Her Scary Experience With A Real-life Stalker To Help Her Prepare For Her Role In New Thriller The Perfect Guy.
Shawn Caples was sentenced to three years probation and psychiatric treatment after he was arrested in June, 2014, after contractors working on Lathan's house found him asleep in her laundry room.
The actress was terrified by the invasion of privacy, but she found a way to turn a negative into a positive as she prepared to play a woman who makes the mistake of falling for an obsessed stalker.
She says, "I swear to you in almost 20 years of being in this business, I've never had any problems. And then I had a stalker three months before we started shooting and it was really scary. He showed up at my house and thought he was my husband. He was mentally ill. I called the police. He came back three days later."
The idea of the perfect man doesn't always hold up entirely. Sometimes, a person can seem perfect on the surface - too perfect, in fact - and hold a deep, dark secret beneath. Leah Vaughn (Sanaa Lathan) discovers this when she finally leaves Dave (Morris Chestnut), her long-term boyfriend, because he isn't ready to commit to the idea of children. Dating begins, and she soon meets Carter Duncan (Morris Chestnut) who seems like the perfect man for her. But when she accidentally discovers his darker side, she does her best to get away from him, only to find herself pursued by a very dangerous suiter.
