New Delhi, Nov 9 (IANS) “Doctor Sleep” star Kyliegh Curran says the supernatural thriller will bring a closure to the story of “The Shining”, the cult horror flick that legendary filmmaker Stanley Kubrick created in 1980.
Curran, 13, is seen as Abra Stone in “Doctor Sleep”, which is directed by Mike Flanagan, from his own screenplay based upon the novel by Stephen King.
“It’s amazing. It’s a supernatural thriller. And I think it’s quite different. And I think it’ll make people happy because it kind of brings closure to ‘The Shining’. We’re all waiting to see what happens,” Curran told IANS.
“Doctor Sleep” takes forward the story of Danny Torrance (played by Ewan McGregor), 40 years after his stay at the Overlook Hotel in “The Shining”.
Actress Rebecca Ferguson is seen as cult leader Rose the Hat, who feeds off the shine of innocents in her quest for immortality, in the film. Warner Bros. released the film in India on November 8.
“I really like horror movies. So I think taking experience and watching horror movies really helped me relate to the film. And I worked with my acting coach a lot for Abra (who has the shine),” she said.
Talking about the cast, the child actor said: “It was amazing working with Mr. Ewan and the whole cast. They’re all very nice. They made me feel very comfortable because I was quite nervous when we started. And I learned a lot from them… They were awesome, amazing and absolutely the sweetest people I’ve ever met.”
