Character Analysis

(Avoiding Spoilers)

Overview... a free-spirited single-mother. Donna owns a rundown hotel called Villa Donna on the Greek island Kalokairi, where she raised her daughter Sophie. The two have been a team their whole lives, but now that Sophie is getting married that’s all about to change. Her daughter’s big destination wedding reunites Donna with the two members of her former girl group, The Dynamos. She also comes face-to-face with three former flames – one of whom is Sophie’s father. If only she knew which one!

Personality... free-spirited, giving, and overworked. Donna is a gracefully aging hippie who’s mostly put her bohemian ways behind her to rule her hotel – not that she doesn’t occasionally don her 1970s jumpsuit for an impromptu performance or two. She loves her daughter and mostly loves her life, but she’s given up on the idea of ever finding romance again. But has she given up too soon?
