Written by Katie Wech and directed by Francesca GregoriniThe Hypnotist’s Love Story centers on successful hypnotherapist Ellen, who after a string of failed romances is optimistic about her current boyfriend, Patrick (Canto), until he reveals a disturbing truth: a stalker ex-girlfriend Sasha (Graham) has been following him for years. Ellen finds herself intrigued and oddly thrilled by the stalker, entirely unaware that they’ve already met.

Canto’s Patrick is a devoted single father — warm, romantic, charismatic and quite possibly the one Ellen’s been waiting for. But he also lives with the stalker secret. Patrick longs for his relationship with Ellen to work but fears this new relationship can’t withstand the pressure of the unseen woman who’s always out there, always watching.

Canto has been a series regular on Designated Survivor. Like other original cast members, he signed a one-year deal to return for the former ABCdrama’s upcoming third season on Netflix, leaving him free to do pilots.

In addition to Designated Survivor, his series credits include ABC’s Blood & Oil and Netflix’s Narcos.
