In an interview with Collider, Julia Stiles – who will be one of the stars of the long-awaited sequel “Orphan 2” (“Orphan: First Kill”, in the original) – said she was shocked by the new movie. and how the tech team managed to do it.
“The title of the production was ‘Esther’, which I liked a lot, and that’s the girl’s name. What is amazing is that Isabelle Fuhrman, who played the girl in the original film, is now taking over the role, the same age, despite her advanced age… And I was shocked. Because they haven’t used CGI. The tricks they did with the camera and with different perspectives, plus the costumes and prosthetics… She looked like a girl. And her performance is spectacular, because she embodies a child in both the way she talks and walks, ”she commented.
In another interview with the same press consortium, Fuhrman assured that the new film will be far from predictable and will wow audiences.
“Definitely the movie is not what I think most people expect, it’s mind-boggling and that’s the most exciting part, which really pushed me to play this role.”
She went on to say that the film will be groundbreaking as this is the first time that an adult actress has reprized a child role.
“Something that got me so excited is that it’s never been shown in the movies, you know?” There has never been an adult actress who reprized a role she played as a child. And it was exceptionally difficult and a lot of fun to do, because when I was a kid and I played Esther, I constantly played a 33 year old woman posing as a kid. Now I am living this reality, I am over 20 years old and I need to play a 10 year old girl. It’s quite a burden on my shoulders.
