'Petals on the Wind' stars talk whirlwind filmmaking -- and whether they're rooting for Christopher and Cathy

If you own a television, chances are you’ve seen either Rose McIver or Wyatt Nash pop up on it at some point in the last few years. She’s had notable roles on Masters of Sex and Once Upon a Time; he’s appeared on Pretty Little Liars and Rake, and was also a contestant on Survivor: Redemption Island in 2011. (Back then, Nash went by his given name, Matt Elrod; he switched to his middle name and Nash, for Nashville, after leaving the show. “I kind of wanted to start at ground zero and really work my way to where I am now,” he explains to EW. “I didn’t want to use [my experience on Survivor] as a leg up.”)

But even if you’re familiar with either actor’s work, you’ve never seen them like this before: playing grown-up siblings Cathy and Christopher Sheffield (formerly Dollanganger), a pair of blonde bombshells who are secretly in love with each other. READ FULL STORY

'Petals on the Wind' trailer: Thought 'Flowers in the Attic' was nuts? You ain't seen nothing yet -- EXCLUSIVE

A brief, uber-dramatic recap of Flowers in the Attic? Check. A shot of Heather Graham in a gorgeous ball gown, torching her ancestral home with an ornate candelabra? Brother-boning, ballet, and literal petals on literal wind? Check, check, and mate.

In short: Why are you not already watching the very first trailer for Petals on the Wind, Lifetime’s juicy followup to its smash hit Flowers in the Attic adaptation? The film features returning stars Graham, Ellen Burstyn, and Dylan Bruce, as well as Rose McIver and Wyatt Nash in parts originated by Kiernan Shipka and Mason Dye. (The sequel picks up 10 years after the events of Flowers, meaning it’s really an adaptation of the second half of Petals. Which is not necessarily a bad thing, because the second half of Petals is just as insane as the first.)

Check out the deliciously melodramatic teaser below, all set to the haunting strains of Kelly Sweet’s take on “In the Air Tonight” — or risk Withered Old Ellen Burstyn haunting your dreams forevermore. READ FULL STORY

'Flowers in the Attic' sequel: Sexy first photos and premiere date -- EXCLUSIVE

Ready to see grown up Cathy and Christopher?

Here are the first two character images from Lifetime’s Petals on the Wind, the sequel to ratings sensation Flowers in the Attic. Plus, we can also exclusively reveal the film’s premiere date: Scrap your Memorial Day plans, because you’re going to watching Petals on the Wind Monday, May 26 at 9 p.m.

The film stars Rose McIver (Once Upon a Time) as Cathy Dollanganger and Wyatt Nash (Pretty Little Liars) as her brother/secret attic lover Christopher Dollanganger. These two young-ish Flowers parts were recast because the sequel picks up a decade after the conclusion of the first film. Heather Graham also returns as their mother Corrine, while Cathy’s new boyfriend is played by Will Kemp (90210).

One photo shows a family portrait with a trio of blue-eyed Dollangangers decked out in swinging retro threads. Cathy in particular looks rather intense, doesn’t she? Then there’s a photo of Cathy and her abusive dancer paramour Julian, a relationship that leads her to confront the forbidden romance she had with her brother in the first film. Ellen Burstyn and Dylan Bruce will also reprise their roles in the film as grandmother Olivia and Corrine’s husband Bart, respectively.

'Flowers in the Attic' sequel gets new Cathy: Rose McIver to replace Kiernan Shipka

Is this the face of a beautiful prima ballerina who burns for her beautiful brother — and yearns for revenge against her equally beautiful mother?

Lifetime thinks so. EW can confirm that 26-year-old Rose McIver will star as Cathy in Petals on the Wind, the network’s upcoming sequel to its hit adaptation of V.C. Andrews’s Flowers in the Attic. McIver will inherit the role from Kiernan Shipka, who played Cathy from ages 12 through 15 in the first film. The novel on which Petals is based picks up immediately where Flowers leaves off, covering a sequence of events that take place over the course of 12 years; Lifetime’s movie version will take a different approach, beginning a decade after the events of the first movie. (Which is a good thing, since it means viewers will be spared scenes of Sally Draper seducing a 40-year-old man.)

McIver, a New Zealand native, may be known best to American audiences as Vivian Scully on Showtime’s Masters of Sex or Tinker Bell on ABC’s Once Upon a Time. As her Facebook page notes, McIver also used to study ballet and jazz dance — which may come in handy when playing dancer-turned-teacher Cathy. She joins returning Flowers cast members Heather Graham and Ellen Burstyn, who will reprise their roles Cathy’s wicked mother and grandmother, respectively.
