Shahadi Wright Joseph went to ‘darkish house’ for ‘Us’ character


The 14-year-old who performed Zora and her demonic doppelgänger Umbrae in Jordan Peele’s “Us” mentioned it took two weeks after filming ended till she felt the creepy character depart her.

“I positively needed to go to a darkish house . . . The film was very eerie,” Shahadi Wright Joseph informed us. “Since I’m so younger, I by no means had any private experiences to narrate to Umbrae, so I actually simply needed to put myself into her footwear and discover out what it was wish to be her . . . I must go deep into my head.”

Within the horror movie, a household is confronted by their very own devilish doubles.

Fortunately, “Umbrae is not part of me,” mentioned Wright Joseph — who’s moved on to star within the extra kid-friendly “Lion King” remake.
