“The Conjuring 2” star Madison Wolfe has confessed that she has a connection to the supernatural, which makes her unafraid of ghosts on the set of the horror sequel.
In an interview with People, Wolfe, who recently graduated from high school, has spoken about her experience in filming the film.
“I’m never ever scared on set,” she said. “I was never haunted by my character, but I did do a lot of research on Janet and the Enfield Poltergeist before and during filming, actually.”
She also narrated one instance when she and her agent uploaded her audition tape, not knowing that the timestamp’s year was 1979, the same year “The Conjuring” is set in.
Meanwhile, returning film director James Wan has admitted that he fears the sequel might not have as much impact as the first movie, the Inquisitr reported.
“I was really apprehensive about making it,” Wan said. “’The Conjuring’ was a massive success, and honestly, it set the bar quite high. So I was nervous about making the sequel and I wasn’t sure if it will still have the same impact as the first one did. But that’s what moved me to make the sequel.”
He also lamented about how indie films have been saving the horror genre as mainstream cinema has been delivering so many duds quality-wise in recent years. He aims to “bring that kind of respect back” to horror films made by major studios.
Original film stars Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson reprise their roles as the paranormal investigators Lorraine and Ed Warren in the sequel. It will focus on the true story of a family who was haunted by one of the scariest poltergeist activities ever recorded by paranormal experts.
“The Conjuring 2” will arrive in theaters this summer on June 10. Advance screenings have also been set up by Warner Brothers Studios.
