Working on a Lifetime thriller is intense, right? That is unless you are Peter Benson and Zibby Allen. On Sunday, on Instagram, Peter wrote, “Check out this fun thriller Lies Between Friends tonight on @lifetimetv! For a serious little film, I had way too many laughs with the incomparable @zibbyloo. What an absolute treat to work with you my friend. Also loved @matreyascarrwener who gives a fantastic performance. Big thanks to our leader @annforry and the whole crew!”

In return, Zibby Allen wrote on her Instagram page on Saturday about working on this movie, and laughing despite the terror plot of this movie.

Lies Between Friends premiers tomorrow night on @lifetimetv in the U.S. It’s a thriller movie you guys🔪🫣 But the real thrill for me was working with sir @peterbenson889 who made me laugh so stupid much! It was maybe the first time ever that I felt legit terror that I might not actually manage to get through this scene without breaking. Also, the lovely @matreyascarrwener plays our highly suspicious house guest disturbingly well… 😳

Peter responded to her post declaring how hard he laughed as well, despite the terror in this movie plot.

@zibbyloo – the pleasure was all mine my friend! What an absolute joy it was going on this ride with you. I haven’t laughed that hard in a long time which is weird because there’s nothing funny about this movie 😂 You are an absolute delight and I hope we get to do it again 🙂
