Actress Jamie Lynn Spears on her role
Jamie Lynn Spears had an interview recently and she shares her experience of the character. Noreen Fitzgibbons is a young woman who gets pregnant at a very early age. In Sweet Magnolias, Noreen’s sudden pregnancy spread rumours all around the town.
Noreen was with a married doctor (played by Chris Klein). She lived in a small town and people saw her with questionable eyes. Noreen faces the rumours and at a very young age decides to raise to the kid. As it is seen she has to take an adult decision at a young age.
Spears says she didn’t feel like she was acting. It felt as if she was narrating her own story through Noreen. Jamie Spears, sister of Britney Spears, came to Hollywood when she was a teen. Jamie Spears was a singer and an actor but she had to leave the film industry at 16 years of age. She left because she became pregnant when she was 16.
Like Noreen, she also faced the consequences of spread rumours. Although, she decided she will leave for a small town in Louisiana and will raise her kid. Similar to Noreen, she had to make adult decisions when she was a teen. Later on, the father of Jamie’s daughter Maddie, Casey Aldridge moved on and they separated. She did find love with Jamie Watson and married in 2014.
From the experience of her own story, Spears indicates that there is more to the character of Noreen then just a delicate mother. She really hopes for Season 2 where Noreen could continue her story.
