Horror fans were shocked when they learned that “The Orphan” would be earning a sequel with the return of Isabelle Fuhrman as Esther.
In the original, Fuhrman was just 12 when he played slayer Leena Klammer disguised as a missing child.
Currently 24, the star spoke to Collider and assured that the new film will not be predictable at all and will confuse 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 it 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 a huge burden on my shoulders. “
Previously, actress Julia Stiles spoke to the portal and revealed that the new film will have a major twist.
“I don’t watch horror movies and when they sent me this script I was like, ‘I don’t know. I don’t really like this genre ”. And I was also afraid of going back to work because of the COVID pandemic. But the script was really good! I couldn’t stop reading it, and I was very surprised at the turnaround. I won’t go into details, but I think you’ll love it.
She adds, “It’s incredibly psychological. I’m not really interested in blood and violence. I find it disgusting, but it’s not particularly scary. What I find really scary are the things that happen in this movie. Esther, Isabelle Fuhrman’s character, is fascinating – especially since she is an adult. He’s a fascinating sociopathic character, on par with Norman Bates.
