Taylor Schilling Says 'The Prodigy' Is Story of a 'Real Mother Warrior'

Taylor Schilling keeps it bright while striking a pose on the set of Despierta America held at Univision Studios in support of her brand new film The Prodigy held on Monday morning (January 28) in Miami, Fla.

The film follows Taylor‘s character Sarah, a mother whose young son Miles’ disturbing behavior signals that an evil, possibly supernatural force has overtaken him.

“I remember reading this script and being completely shocked by where Sarah went with her choices,” Taylor told Marie Claire. “It’s pretty radical: This woman doesn’t go belly-up; she doesn’t submit. She keeps following her instincts, trusting her gut, and fighting. I really love and appreciate her.”

“It’s the story of a real mother warrior who had to go places she never could have dreamed of to protect her son,” Taylor continued. “And who’s forced to discover a far more resilient part of herself that she hadn’t accessed before.”

The Prodigy hits theaters on February 8 – Watch the trailer here!
