Lifetime's 'Secrets of a Marine's Wife' is based on the true story of 19- year-old Erin Corwin's murder who was involved in an illicit affair
Lifetime's upcoming film 'Secrets of a Marine's Wife' follows the tragic story of happily ever to disaster, for a young couple, 19-year-old Erin Corwin (Sadie Calvano) and her husband Major Jon Corwin (Evan Roderick). The nation was left holding its breath when Corwin who was pregnant went missing. However, it was only after two months that Erin's body would be discovered at the bottom of an abandoned mineshaft. Suspicions mounted quickly in the tight-knit Marine community that the killer was one of their own. It was also discovered during the course of the investigations, that a friendship between Erin and her neighbor, Marine Christopher Lee (Tom Stevens), turned into a relationship that consumed them both, leading to questions about the paternity of Erin’s baby.
Sadie Calvano, who is best known for her role in 'Mom', stars as Erin Corwin in the Lifetime film which brings the sensational Erin Corwin case to the screen. If you enjoy true crime, some of Lifetime's other films based on real events such as 'Gone Mom: The Disappearance of Jennifer Dulos' and 'Girl in the Basement' should make it to your watchlist.
Sadie Calvano as Erin Corwin
Sadie Calvano plays 19-year-old Erin Corwin, who went missing and was later found dead at the bottom of a mineshaft. Erin found herself in the middle of a complicated love triangle with her husband Major Jon Corwin and her neighbor, another Marine, Christopher Lee who she entered into an illicit relationship with.
Sadie Calvano may be best known for her comic skills on the comedy 'Mom' where she plays Violet Plunkett, but it looks like Calvano brings her dramatic skills to the fore in 'Secrets of a Marine's Wife'. Apart from 'Mom', Calvano has also acted in the made-for-TV movie 'The Perfect Daughter' beside her guest roles on shows like 'NCIS' and 'Melissa & Joey' and 'Why Women Kill'.
Evan Roderick as Major Jon Corwin
Evan Roderick plays Major Jon Corwin, Erin's husband who finds himself betrayed by his young wife as she embarks on an extramarital affair. Major Jon Corwin initially found himself at the center of the investigation of his wife's disappearance and murder. However, his involvement was quickly ruled out when Christopher Lee who Erin was having an affair with became the prime suspect.
Canadian actor Evan Roderick, a former champion hockey player, made his television debut with a guest role in a 2015 episode of the docudrama series 'Untold Stories of the E.R.'. His first major role however was as Officer Nick Anastas in the DC Comics series 'Arrow', a recurring role he played for the last three seasons of the show from 2017 to 2019. Roderick also went onto star as Justin Davis in the Netflix series 'Spinning Out'.
Tom Stevens as Christopher Lee
Tom Stevens plays Christopher Lee, Erin and Jon Corwin's neighbor and fellow Marine who was involved in an extramarital affair with Erin. Lee finally confessed to killing Erin but said it was a crime of passion as he suspected that Erin was molesting his daughter who she sometimes babysat.
Tom Stevens gave up acting for several years and worked a variety of odd jobs, but he missed acting too much so he decided to try his hand at it again. It seems to be a decision that has worked out well for the actor with this complex role.
