A young woman (Kat Graham) takes a trip to romantic Verona, Italy, after a break up, only to find that the villa she reserved was double-booked, and she’ll have to share her vacation with a cynical and very good-looking British man (Tom Hopper).

Kat Graham was most recently in Collide and Heatwave. The actress is perhaps best known for her role in The Vampire Diaries. Other notable credits include Cut Throat City, Emperor, The Poison Rose, How It Ends, Operation Christmas Drop, Trollstopia, Where’s The Money, All Eyez On Me, 17 Again, The Roommate, Addicted, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and Honey 2.

Tom Hopper currently plays Luther Hargreeves in Netflix’s The Umbrella Academy, which was just renewed for a fourth and final season. The actor can also be seen in Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City, Northmen – A Viking Saga, Kill Ratio, Game of Thrones, I Feel Pretty, Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard, and Black Sails.


I spoke with the duo about what makes the dynamic between their characters so special, their favorite romance tropes, which elements make the perfect rom-com, and more!
