Interviewed on the In My Dreams set, Mike Vogel describes how Nick and Natalie get together-in their dreams at least. "There's an old wives' tale involving the Hayward Fountain in our mythical town," he recounts. "If you make a wish, then toss a coin in the fountain, you'll meet the man or woman of your dreams, and you'll have the most fantastic dreams for seven nights. But if the dream couple haven't actually met in the real world before that time limit expires - well, it's all over. So it's really a race against time."
Charlotte (JoBeth Williams), Nick's meddling mother, is determined to introduce her son to Ms. Right. Mike Vogel says that mother--son dynamic is one of the things that attracted him to the script and the project. "Nick's Mom is a meddler," says Vogel. "But she's not mean-spirited. Her heart's in the right place. She means well, she really does. She just can't help herself!" Vogel describes In My Dreams as "a romance with hints of comedy."
His co-star, Katharine McPhee, agrees with that description. "This is a romance, first and foremost," she says. "I firmly believe that Mr. or Ms. Right is out there for all of us. And who's to say that throwing a coin in a fountain won't lead you to the pot of gold at the end of the romance rainbow. I mean, if that can work for Nick and Natalie, why can't it work for all of us? The trick is to find the right fountain!"
