Taissa Farmiga

Taissa Farmiga Cast In Title Role For The Nun

In a Valley of Violence star Taissa Farmiga has been cast in the title role of Warner Bros.’ planned horror film The Nun.

Farmiga, of course, is best known for her multiple appearances on American Horror Story, the horror anthology series that saw her play a lead role in the first two seasons and a guest role on the last. However, she has also acted in several films, the most recent of which is We Have Always Lived in the Castle.

As a spin-off of The Conjuring franchise, the movie will revolve around the titular apparition, which vexed paranormal investigator Lorraine Warren in the last film. By remarkable coincidence, the actress who played Warren, Bates Motel‘s Vera Farmiga, happens to be the older sister of the newly-cast Taissa., the source of this story, shares the following information about the growing horror franchise:

The Nun is the second spinoff to come from The Conjuring series, following in the footsteps of Annabelle, which will see its prequel film Annabelle: Creation hit theaters August 11, 2017. What makes this spinoff perhaps so remarkable is that The Nun character was a late addition to last year’s The Conjuring 2, but was quickly a favorite by horror fans and was announced to have her own feature film in development just one week after The Conjuring 2 opened.

An aspiring writer, longtime film junkie, and former disc jockey (where I graduated with a BA in Political Science), I've made the jump from penning book reviews and current events editorials for to writing movie and TV news and reviews.

When I'm not working towards my certificate in Radio and Television/Video Production at Fullerton College, I enjoy reading (horror, science fiction, and historical/political nonfiction are particular favorites), participating in my school's TV and theatre clubs, attending movie screenings, plays, concerts, and other events, and trying to come up with pithy things to say on social media. Believe it or not, there are occasions where I find time to write for my own leisure.
