2 months ago

Emily Alyn Lind is still haunted by her work on horror movie ‘Enter the Void’ when she was five years old.

The ‘Gossip Girl’ star played a young girl who sees her family killed in a car accident in the 2009 film, and she remembers the gory scenes vividly despite her young age and believes it inspired her to take on darker parts as an adult.

Emily, now 21, told The Hollywood Reporter: “That [film] was such an experience in and of itself. I don’t know if it’s paranormal, but it feels like the ghost of my past at this point. I was like five years old, and it was the craziest experience.

“People tell me: ‘Oh, you don’t remember being five or six years old,’ and I’m always like: ‘I do, because I basically lived through a traumatic experience’.

“Yes, it was fake, but it was an extreme and tragic experience of being in a car crash where my character’s whole family dies in front of her at age five. So that was just a wild experience with all the fake blood, and it’s the reason I do what I do today.”

She went on to appear in films such as ‘The Babysitter’ and ‘Doctor Sleep’ and was recently seen in paranormal sequel ‘Ghostbusters: Frozen Empire’, and Emily says she’s always been drawn to the genre. She added: “I’ve been in a lot of horror films and whatnot. I’ve perfected my scream way too well, and there’s blood that’s going to be on my scalp for the rest of my life.

“I just can never get away from it, but I love the horror genre. ”

She went on to insist she is going to try to find a less disturbing film for her next project, adding: “I’ll do something upbeat next time, and we’ll talk about that. I’ll just be a carefree, happy girl with a beautiful family and a dog. I’ll be a Norman Rockwell painting. That’s what I’m looking for next.”…Read more by Bang Showbiz
