Los Angeles: Director Corin Hardy, who is gearing up for the release of his upcoming film “The Nun”, says there is truth and authenticity to actors Taissa Farmiga and Demian Bichir’s acting.
“Their charisma, individually and as a unit, really comes through in Taissa’s and Demian’s performances. There is a truth and an authenticity in their acting,” Hardy said in a statement.
Starring as the novitiate — Sister Irene, Taissa Farmiga was drawn in by the screenplay.
“I really enjoyed reading Gary’s script. I think it is telling about what kind of writer he is that, in a story that’s terrifying and haunting, he was able to weave in moments of levity for the audience to enjoy along the way. It feels like a roller coaster ride where you have all those thrilling ups and downs,” Farmiga said.
Bichir said that he loved “the spectacular setting and thought Father Burke was one of the richest characters I” ever read. And the script was very well-written-so complex, and deep in many different ways.””
“The Nun” explores another dark corner of the “Conjuring” universe. Warner Bros. Pictures brings the film to India in English, Hindi, Tamil and Telugu on September 7.
