Starstruck Season 2 Story
New Zealand woman thinks she slept with a famous movie star on New Year’s Eve after a one-night stand in Hackney, London. After the one-night stand, she is fired from her job as a nanny.
In Starstruck there is an awkward streak. Not in the forced, festival of cringe kind of way, but in the way that two people genuinely don’t know how they feel about each other. The pauses and goofy silence filters are part of the fun, too.
In this romantic comedy, Jessie (Rose Matafoe) and Tom (Nikesh Patel) start out on the uneven ground with an “unglamorous bathroom sink” as their chosen place to have a one-night stand. However, when Jessie realizes that Tom is Tom Kapoor, she gets a surprise when he turns out to be a luxury brand endorsement. Instead of engaging everyone in her circle in a new infatuation, Jessie keeps Tom’s number in her phone as “Tom Famous” and largely continues living her life as before.
Following a night with a guy she predicts she will never see him again; we see her dancing through a London neighborhood the morning after. Jessie’s friends who know about her memorable starts to the year know that she also has the confidence and impulsive nature to explore other options as she chooses. Jessie’s inner circle is already bolstered by people who have known her for years at the start of “Starstruck”. That’s because Tom is pretty much the only new person she meets.
She has a close relationship with her flatmate Kate (Emma Sidi) and the supervisor at her part-time job as a nanny (Sindhu Vee), who gives Jessie a stern rebuke when she slips into excessive self-destructiveness.
