“Harlan Coben’s Shelter” – Abby Corrigan on the importance of an LGBTQ+ character in the YA Series

"Who am I? What's going on? I've definitely struggled with those questions throughout my life,” admits Abby Corrigan (Castle Rock; Homeland), in a press conference at the Monte Carlo Television Festival last week in Monaco. She is promoting the new Prime series: Harlan Coben’s Shelter, which is based on “Shelter,” the first novel in the best-selling young adult book trilogy by the writer Harlan Coben, and premiered at the festival.

Jean Reno at the Monte-Carlo Television Festival

After making a name for himself in his native France - particularly with his collaborations with action director Luc Besson, including Le Femme Nikita (1991) and Léon: The Professional (1994) - actor Jean Reno then crossed the Atlantic to become a sought-after character actor in big budget Hollywood films including Mission: Impossible (1996),  Ronin (1998), The Pink Panther (2006), The Da Vinci Code (2006) and Da Five Bloods (2020). The 73-year-old national treasure shows no signs of slowing down, he tells press at the recent Monte Carlo TV Festival, where he admits almost with embarrassment, that he has three TV shows about to launch.
