Rose Byrne puts on her leg warmers and heads to the mall in the new series ‘Physical‘ premiering this month on Apple TV+. Get ready to feel the Byrne! (sorry)
Byrne stars as Sheila Rubin, a quietly tormented housewife in ’80s San Diego, who, behind closed doors, battles extreme personal demons and a vicious inner voice. But things change when she discovers aerobics, sparking a journey toward empowerment and success.
She told the Los Angeles Times:
Sheila doesn’t know how to articulate it, but she wants a seat at the table. She is trying to harness this ambition while harboring secret, terrible shame, and a destructive illness. Women can be incredibly self-destructive in what we do to ourselves and to our bodies, and I don’t think that’s what’s represented enough in the stories I see.
The series also stars Rory Scovel, Dierdre Friel, Paul Sparks, and Della Saba.
