After bingeing all 9 episodes of Netflix’s newest horror-drama The Haunting of Bly Manor, I needed to know who performs the notorious but faceless girl within the lake who stalks across the manor, ready for her subsequent unlucky sufferer, also called Viola Willoughby-Lloyd.
Taking part in Viola is actress and screenwriter Kate Siegel, who’s finest recognized for her work in horror films and TV sequence. Netflix’s newest horror drama, The Haunting of Bly Manor, during which she performs Viola Willoughby-Lloyd, doesn’t stray from the sample of spooky horror and thriller works. The sequence is a primarily based on the basic novella by Henry James, The Flip of the Screw, and it doesn’t disappoint. It is filled with all of the drama, morbidity, symbolism, and some of the identical forged members as its predecessor, The Haunting of Hill Home (Victoria Pedretti, Oliver Jackson-Cohen, Henry Thomas, Carla Gugino, and naturally, Siegel).
Siegel is tragic, terrifying, and relatable in her portrayal of Viola, a spunky lady who dies at Bly Manor, betrayed by her circle of relatives, and continues to hang-out the grounds. The actress additionally performed Theodora, the center little one in The Haunting of Hill Home, Maddie within the horror flick Hush, and Jenny in Ouija: Origin of Evil. She has additionally labored as a voice actor on the No Sleep podcast and co-wrote Hush together with her husband, including to her already spectacular record of initiatives within the horror style.

Not like in Siegel’s major function in The Haunting of Hill Home, Viola does not present up till the ultimate two episodes of the primary season. Viola is without doubt one of the late girls of Bly Manor and is forward of her time, a girl decided to defy sexist gender roles compelled upon her (she made some extent to omit the road the place she was meant to vow to obey her husband from her marriage ceremony vows).
Except for performing and screenwriting, Siegel is a mom to 2 kids; she talked about breastfeeding her new child child whereas filming The Haunting of Hill Home, crediting it as a grounding method. Judging from her efficiency as spunky, but troubled Theo, Siegel’s grounding method did the trick.
