After binging all 9 episodes of Netflix’s newest horror-drama The Haunting of Bly Manor, I needed to know who performs the notorious but faceless woman within the lake who stalks across the manor, ready for her subsequent unlucky sufferer, also called Viola Willoughby-Lloyd.
Enjoying Viola is actress and screenwriter Kate Siegel, who’s greatest recognized for her work in horror motion pictures and TV sequence. Netflix’s newest horror drama, The Haunting of Bly Manor, doesn’t stray from this sample of spooky horror and thriller works. The sequence is a primarily based on the basic novella by Henry James, The Flip of the Screw, and it doesn’t disappoint. It is stuffed with all of the drama, morbidity, symbolism, and some of the identical solid members as its predecessor, The Haunting of Hill Home. These embrace Victoria Pedretti, Oliver Jackson-Cohen, Henry Thomas, Carla Gugino, and naturally, Siegel.
Siegel is tragic, terrifying, and relatable in her portrayal of Viola, a spunky girl who dies at Bly Manor. After being betrayed by her family, Viola continues to hang-out the grounds.

Not like in Siegel’s predominant function in The Haunting of Hill Home, Viola would not present up till the ultimate two episodes of the primary season. Viola is among the late girls of Bly Manor and is forward of her time, a girl decided to defy sexist gender roles compelled upon her (she made some extent to omit the road the place she was meant to vow to obey her husband from her wedding ceremony vows).
Except for performing and screenwriting, Siegel is a mom to 2 youngsters; she talked about breastfeeding her new child child whereas filming The Haunting of Hill Home, crediting it as a grounding approach. Judging from her efficiency as spunky but troubled Theo, Siegel’s grounding approach did the trick.
