Watch the After Ever Happy Trailer
Voltage Pictures published the After Ever Happy official trailer on July 14, 2022. The following installment continues where the last one left off. Tessa and Hardin, our two young lovers, are maturing and their troubled relationship is approaching a turning point. After his mother’s wedding, Hardin makes the decision to remain in London and descends even farther into grief after discovering his family’s horrible, long-kept secret. Tessa, meantime, is tired of trying to save Hardin and their romance. To Hardin’s disappointment, she suggests the pair take some time apart to focus on themselves first. Tessa travels to Seattle in the hopes of leading a regular life while Hardin learns to embrace his history, but before long a personal catastrophe strikes.
Tessa and Hardin will always find a way back to one other’s warm, passionate embrace, despite the fact that the odds are always stacked against them. But might this be the beginning of the end for them, or will their passion be enough to keep them together? All the solutions are in After Ever Happy.
What Is After Ever Happy About?
Based on Anna Todd’s bestselling After book series, After Ever Happy Todd first made her works available on the social storytelling website Wattpad, where she amassed a sizable following. The narrative of the movie may have suffered a few small creative changes here and there, but mostly it maintains close to the novel’s original plot.
Not too long after the events of After We Fell, there is a movie called After Ever Happy. To attend Hardin’s mother Trish’s (Louise Lombard) wedding to her fiancé, Tessa and Hardin are in London. But the evening before the nuptials, Hardin witnesses Trish engaging in sexual activity with Christian Vance, Tessa’s publisher (Stephen Moyer). Hardin is informed by Vance that Ken Scott is not his real father. Tessa also learns about this from Kimberly, Vance’s fiancée (Arielle Kebbel). In a state of shock and rage, Hardin storms out of the hotel bar only to have Tessa pursue him. Just as the credits begin to roll, the couple kisses and embraces.
The aftermath of the aforementioned incidents is the main topic of the film. After learning who his real father is, Hardin experiences a downward spiral, and Tessa comes to the conclusion that only Hardin can save him. Hardin is even more upset when Tessa proposes they take some time apart to recuperate. When their paths cross again in the future, they will have the choice of either rekindling their romance or making the same mistakes all over again. It’s ultimately up to the two lovers to make a decision.
Who’s In the Cast of After Ever Happy?
Tessa Young and Hardin Scott’s respective parts will be played again by Josephine Langford and Hero Fiennes Tiffin. Tessa has previously appeared in films as a devoted student and a similarly devoted daughter. Her world spins out of control when the mysterious Hardin Scott enters it after living such a guarded life in college and having nothing but lofty goals. The skeletons Hardin has been hiding in his closet are the reason for his infamous reputation, and it’s only a matter of time before they all break free.
Trish Daniels, Hardin’s mother (Louise Lombard), also reappears in After Ever Happy. Trish loves her son as much as a mother loves her child, despite the distance between them. Ken’s ex-wife, Trish, divorced him because of his alcoholism. Trish has a forgiving nature and rarely gets angry, despite the anguish she experiences as a result of a tragic occurrence that happened in her own house. Louise Lombard is scheduled to feature in Christopher Nolan’s Oppenheimer and has a long list of cinema and television projects to her name.
In the third film, After We Fell, Stephen Moyer portrays Christian Vance, Tessa’s supervisor at Vance Publishing, who is subsequently revealed to be Hardin’s father. Previously, Trish and Vance became close when Trish split from Ken. Vance establishes a working relationship with his secretary Kimberly after relocating to America to start his prosperous publishing company (Arielle Kebbel). Initially platonic, their relationship quickly develops into something passionate and results in their engagement. Fans of True Blood would recognize Moyer from his portrayal of the vampire Bill Compton on the HBO series.
Landon Gibson, a fictional character played by Chance Perdomo, is a fellow Washington Central University student who befriends Tessa and grows to be her closest friend and confidant. Smart and well-behaved Landon’s mother Karen (Frances Turner) is engaged to Hardin’s estranged father Ken Scott (Rob Estes), making Landon the prospective stepbrother for Hardin in the future.
Kiana Madeira, who first appeared in After We Fell, is back on screen in After Ever Happy as Nora, the boisterous and disobedient love interest of the quiet and uncomfortable Landon. In the fourth film, Carter Jenkins will return to the role of Robert, Tessa’s love interest. Returning as Tessa’s severe and commanding mother, Carol Young (Mira Sorvino) exhibits parenting behaviors as a result of being abandoned by her now destitute ex-husband Richard Young (Atanas Srebrev).
