The protagonist of the Lifetime movie “Long Lost Daughter” is Michelle Jacobs (Sofia Mattsson). She and her boyfriend Jonathan (Richard Brancatisano) move to the suburbs together. There she befriends an older woman, neighbor Cathy who’s a children’s book author. Cathy seems harmless at first. But then Michelle finds out the hard way that Cathy believes Michelle is her daughter who went missing 20 years ago. The situation is both sad and demented.
Cathy is portrayed by Molly Hagan. She’s known for her roles on Jane the Virgin (Patricia Cordero), Law & Order True Crime (the Menendez brothers’ aunt, Joan Vandermolen), iZombie (Eva Moore), Unfabulous (Sue Singer), and in the films Sully (Doreen Welsh), Election (Diane McAllister), and Some Kind of Wonderful (Shayne), among others.
