"Fawn" star Jessica Gunning said she was mistaken for a stalker in real life

The star of the acclaimed Netflix film "Fawn" Jessica Gunning told the Mirror about how she was mistaken for a stalker in real life. So, according to the plot of the series, based on real events, her heroine pursues a comedian named Donnie (Richard Gadd).

According to the actress, recently a certain woman decided that she was stalking her. “Last week I left the house and there was a woman standing on the street who saw me and screamed: “Ahhh.” It turned out that she had just finished watching episode seven, came out of the house, and there I was. Maybe it was a little strange " Gunning said.

Meanwhile, the popularity of the Netflix series has led to numerous scandals. Fans found a woman named Fiona Harvey, who was the real prototype of the stalker Martha, and began to harass her. Later, she came to an interview with journalist Piers Morgan, and began to argue that much of what was described in the series actually had nothing to do with the truth. According to her, she did not stalk Gadd, whom she actually knew, but simply wrote to him several times in instant messengers. At the same time, according to Fiona, he made her a victim because they began to bully her online. However, based on the results of the interview, viewers concluded that Fiona was indeed pursuing Gadd, and wondered why she did not receive punishment.

Fiona did not forgive Netflix and filed a lawsuit against them: she demands from the studio $170 million, part of which is compensation for moral damages, and $120 million as her share of the profits of the series. Netflix, in turn, does not admit guilt: studio representatives said that Richard Gadd had every right to tell his story.
