Meet The Cast – John Hensley
Known for roles such as Matt McNamara in Nip/Tuck, Brad in Teeth, and Justin in Hostel: III, John Hensley joins the cast of Restraint as Angela Burroughs’ writing teacher Rob. The weekly writers group held in Rob’s home offers Angela a small release from the confines of an unfulfilling suburban life, and though his character is only on screen for one extended scene, his presence is felt, hard.
Restraint’s writer and director Adam Cushman is a long time writing instructor, and the experience surely manifested itself into the character of Rob. John Hensley plays Rob skillfully, almost carefully, and rightly so. As Angela’s writing teacher he’s privy to elements of her hidden self that she hides from all others. He’s able to interpret the subtext of her work to see what horrors lie beneath.
