'The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It' Full Cast List: Meet Patrick Wilson, Vera Farmiga, other stars of horror film
It's almost time for 'The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It' and we couldn't be more excited to see what spooky adventures Ed (Patrick Wilson) and Lorraine Warren (Vera Farmiga) have up their sleeves. The American paranormal investigators will be shifting to the court instead of busting myths in an abandoned attic as they handle one of the toughest cases of their career.
The spoiler-free trailer gives a decent preview of what can be expected from the third installment. The protagonists are met with copious doses of drama, action, and chills as they set out on their journey to uncover the truth of Arne Cheyenne Johnson, the primary suspect. But in doing so, they experience demonic forces that push them to the edge of their sanity.
Wilson has been a part of the franchise since its very inception so for him to portray Ed ideally should have been a cakewalk, except it is not because the universe has evolved over the years. In doing so, he discovered that the third entry has elements that have never been explored before. Talking at a press event, the actor dished on how his equation with co-star Farmiga is and the way they work towards bringing the characters they play in the film to life.
"Because I would say that this film probably had some of the darkest moments of any in the universe, but as you had with the Elvis moment in the second one, or us dancing at the end of the second one, you have those moments in this of just this deep, profound romance," Wilson explained and added: "You can’t; we don’t go halfway with either. If you’re going to have these terrifying scares, then we want to have as many love moments as you can."
Currently, two of his upcoming films 'Moonfall' and 'Aquaman 2' are in post-production.
Even though she and Wilson have been part of the franchise for as many as four films, each time the experience is different and it only gets better this time because Michael Chaves will be stepping up instead of James Wan in the director's role, which served as a shift in crew dynamics thereby making it challenging for all on board.
"You can literally feel divine inspiration at play when you listen to him talk about Ed and Lorraine and their mission and their love," Farmiga spoke about Chaves and their reading sessions to IOL and added: "He referred to it as a love story, and to me, it's not so much a ghost story as it is a love story. I knew then we were in the right hands. And then, of course, there is his energy and his enthusiasm, his enjoyment, his eagerness that was so palpable it was infectious."
Farmiga will be next seen in 'Hawkeye', the TV series.
O'Connor brings vibrant and vulnerable energy to his Arne Cheyenne Johnson. The innocence in his portrayal comes from the fact that he is not as experienced as the rest of the main cast and that is exactly what makes his performance special. Previously, he has starred in TV series 'The Spanish Princess', 'The Postcard Killings' and 'Delicious'.
In an interview with Nerds of Color, Ruairi said that he needs to be more careful because the role he plays is based on a true story and that the individual doesn't exist anymore because of the events depicted in the film. "It was definitely strange and I didn't know how to process it because I don't know what happened really that day."
Sarah Catherine Hook and Julian Hilliard play Debbie and David Glatzel, respectively.
'The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It' is based on a true story. On February 16, 1981, Arne stabbed Alan Bono, 40, 20 times with a pocket knife, which left the small town of Brookline in shock. Later, at the court, he claimed he was possessed by the demon. Directed by Michael Chaves, the horror film hits HBO Max on the same day as theaters — June 4.
