The protagonist in the Lifetime movie The Wrong Friend is high school student Riley. The young beautiful woman falls for Chris who she finds handsome, charming and affectionate. But after a party at his house, Riley sees another (dark) side of Chris (Jared Scott) and decides he’s not prince charming. Quite the opposite. Then he becomes obsessed with her, but she doesn’t know exactly what Chris wants from her. You’d think Riley could trust the high school principal, Principal Atkins (Vivica A. Fox), but maybe that’s not a good idea either.
Young Riley is portrayed by Li Eubanks. This is her big acting debut. Eubanks is currently filming the film If Not Now, When? as young (and pregnant) Tyra; see photo on set below. The Wrong Friend premieres on Lifetime Movies on Friday, September 14 at 8pm.
