I grew up with the original film and of course the sequels as they would come out. So I have to ask—when you came in for Curse, did you have any idea at all where Nica was going to be heading? Because all of this is blowing my mind. I’m only up to episode six of this show, but holy crap, this is amazing. Fiona Dourif: I know [laughs]. And it only gets so much crazier. By the finale, we were all sitting behind the monitors with all the puppeteers, just giggling our asses off.
But did I have any idea how much it was going to be embraced and how long it was going to last Fiona Dourif how many places I could go? Absolutely not. I mean, she was originally written as And then in the series, I mean, Don just gave me so much to play with. It seems like I could do whatever I wanted. He wanted it to be as imaginative and bizarre and as interesting as we could get it.
It’s really juicy material that I feel incredibly fortunate to be able to play. And plus, people really Fiona Dourif it. So the whole thing feels like winning the lottery. In Chucky, you’re getting to play both sides of the coin here, where we get these flashes of Nica, and we also are getting these flashes Fiona Dourif Chucky.
Is that really fun?
Chucky TV Show: Fiona Dourif Played Her Dad’s Role for Flashback Scenes
You mentioned Fiona Dourif the freedom to go places creatively. Fiona Dourif: That’s a great way to put it. No, it was really cool. And when the idea was first floated for me to play Charles, I didn’t think the studio was going to say yes.
And then it turns out they were really enthusiastic. They thought it was a great idea if the prosthetics worked well enough, and I was worried that they weren’t going to. I even went into a bar when we were not shooting with all the prosthetics on, just to see if I would pass Fiona Dourif a cis man and I percent did. Also, the opportunity to just walk around like that was really interesting. It’s a different way of interacting with the world. It really is. I felt really lucky, and I talked to my dad about how he has played Chucky over the Fiona Dourif, and then I made the decision to make it my own.
It was like that [laughs]. But I just had the confidence that enough of him was going to come through. I have his laugh anyway. I have a combination of my mom and my dad’s laugh, but I have this loud cackle in real life that you can hear from blocks away. It’s a nightmare. There’s nothing I can do to stop it. And I think that’s why Don actually first had the idea, Fiona Dourif he thinks I have Chucky’s laugh in real life anyway.

But I just talked to my dad a little bit about who he thinks Chucky is, and then felt like I could make it my own. And I did. And there are two little anecdotes to say here. One is, it’s really cool to get to play somebody who’s so free and having so much fun. I think that’s why people like that character so much is Fiona Dourif he’s such a dick, and he is irreverent, and he really loves his job.
Fiona Dourif really free, and he enjoys every minute of it. He loves being in a woman’s body. He’s driven by fear, but aren’t we all? And it’s fun to get to step into those shoes for a while. And then my second anecdote is It takes about four and a half hours. And I was listening to podcasts, which I do often, just to relax or whatever and I realized I was listening to this physicist and he’s explaining how the universe and basic physics work, to the extent that we can understand it.
And I realized that my dad used to read only physics books when he was in his 40s. And I didn’t do that on purpose, but once his face was on my face, I looked in the mirror at the end of it and it was like looking at my father. Then I realized I was listening to this fucking physics podcast, and I had some kind of existential—well, I wouldn’t call it a crisis, but it was some moment that was quite memorable [laughs].
I was like, "Oh, my God, all we are is genetics. You’re a slave to DNA. I know we’re getting close on time, but I wanted to talk about working with Jennifer, because your scenes together are Fiona Dourif much fun, and I love the back-and-forth between you two. And that poker scene was hilarious and had Fiona Dourif in stitches.
She has so much fun energy. How much fun is it to work with her? Fiona Dourif: It’s so fun. And she’s also one of the freest actresses I’ve ever worked with. So you don’t know what she’s Fiona Dourif to say or do, which keeps you in the moment and keeps it grounded, and keeps it changing a lot.
And it turns out the first time we kissed was in Winnipeg, but it was so cold. You couldn’t tell what was going on.
It was negative 45 degrees when we did this. She’s really smart and interesting and funny and generous. She’s a cool person. And then I liked kissing her, so we were lucky. I was lucky. She’s hot [laughs]. But I’m curious, from your experiences working on Curse and Cult, and now being part of the Chucky TV series, what’s been your biggest takeaway from being involved with this franchise and being able to play with these characters and everything? Fiona Dourif: This series has changed my life.
I Fiona Dourif been acting for about six years before I was first cast in Curse. And I’ve done things that were quite popular, Fiona Dourif I hadn’t done something that has such a loyal fan base as Chucky. I mean, he is zeitgeist-y, man. People just adore him.
It’s something that’s been in Fiona Dourif life since I was seven years old, that all my friends talked about. I also became very good friends with Don. He’s one of my closest friends. The online response to it has been really surreal and wonderful.
I’m so glad that people like it. But getting to make things with people that have been very integral to my life, and then we make something that people really like and is celebrated, and I get paid for it, it feels like winning some bizarre life lottery.
