Why Now? ”I was in an infertility nightmare and really didn’t feel like being on screen,” says Vardalos, 46, who ultimately adopted a toddler last year with husband Ian Gomez. ”Then my manager found this script, and I was able to add my own personal angst of a woman who has lost her mojo and runs away to find it.”
