Cady McClain Sexually Abused By Her Own Father 

McClain uncovered her bitter past during an interview with Entertainment Tonight in June 2014.

Talking about her new book "Murdering My Youth: A Memoir", she revealed that her parents used her for the sake of money. She was inspired to write the book because of the same pain and torture she faced when she was a little girl. 

She said,

"It was a story that lived inside of me and really tortured me for many years. There were people that came into my life as a child, my parents, and a few people from show business who took away my innocence very young."

Initially, she was unaware what her father was doing to her at the moment. She was completely unknown with the fact that her father abused her sexually.

"I was never angry at my dad when I was a kid. I loved him. He was my savior. To me when I was a little girl, he just made a mistake and he thought he was loving me. He didn’t know that it was – he didn’t mean to hurt me. I actually believed that he didn’t mean to hurt me."

Years of sexual abuse by her father even affected her while she was shooting a sex scene in the AMC. 

She was completed devastated when she filmed a rape scene with Matthew Cowles.

"I did the scenes. I did my job and then I went down to my dressing room and just went into the fetal position for awhile because it was just rattling such old bones in me. I didn’t have ownership of my sexuality really. It had been marked in a way by my father when he was drunk, and sexually abused me. It’s taken a long of time and a lot of work to reclaim all those parts of myself."

However, her husband helped her a lot to overcome the abusive past and to become a person what she is today.

"I was honestly able to overcome the sexual abuse by my father because of the love of my husband. The incredible love that Jon has given me, the total acceptance of who I am, that I am not the sum of my experiences, but who I am in spite of that."
