Miller’s Girl’: Jenna Ortega Joins Martin Freeman In Lionsgate & Point Grey


The Miller’s Girl series, written by both Jenna Ortega and Martin Freeman, is an amazing piece of work. I was only able to binge read the first book in May, but it was well worth it. The story of Max Miller and Renee Miller is one that features secrets, twists, romance, and friendship.The main characters Max and Renee are living a “new normal” after a car accident takes away their 12-year-old son Kyle. The heart-wrenching scene was hard to read, but it only got better from there. Max and Renee Miller are surrounded by amazing friends, their 11-year-old daughter Jessa Miller, their dog (my favorite character), and a beautiful new house. Their lives are on an upswing until an unwelcome visitor comes knocking on the door. Karen has been Max’s girlfriend for 8 years and he has been starting to feel trapped in this relationship. He finds out that she is pregnant and because he doesn’t want anymore kids after losing Kyle, he cuts off all ties with her. But she doesn’t go away that easily.

What inspired the director to write Miller’s Girl series?

The series is inspired by the director’s own life with her husband. The inspiration for this series came from the author when she was thinking about what would happen if she ever found out that her husband cheated on her during their marriage.

Who are the directors favorite characters and why?

The favorite character for the director is Max Miller because she feels that he was able to pull himself through all of his experiences. The director also states that the favorite character of hers happens to be the dog! She loved the dog because of its snarky attitude towards Max and Renee that she thought was hilarious.

What is the director’s favorite movie?

The director’s favorite movie that she has seen for a long time is The Notebook. She loves the fact that this movie offers a lot of romance, drama and secrets, something that she thought was what her story was lacking. As soon as she closes her eyes and thinks about this film, she gets chills down her spine.  Her favorite scene from The Notebook happens to be when Noah Kinsley kisses Allie Shaw at the end of their class dance where it shows how much pressure he is putting on himself to not just like Allie for being Allie, but liking Allie for being herself.

What themes does the Miller’s Girl series explore?

The themes that the Miller’s Girl series explores are romance, family drama, and LGBT themes. Because of this fact, I believe that this series will appeal to lots of people. The director has had many people love her book and she believes that the reason that she writes this series is because the LGBT theme resonates with her life in a way and her experience as a bisexual woman.
