Comic-Con 2017: Interview with Lulu Wilson from ANNABELLE: CREATION

Annabelle: Creation

San Diego Comic-Con 2017 kicked off this year with amazing events that included an Annabelle: Creation party followed by a screening of the film that drew thousands of fans. At the party, we spoke to the young Lulu Wilson who had a major role in the film as Linda. In fact, Wilson can be seen front and center on the one sheet poster for the film. 

Our very own Luis Lecca had a chance to interview Wilson about the film and here’s how it went.

Luis Lecca: We’re here at Comic-Con, inside of a VIP Party for Annabelle: Creation. Are you excited?

Lulu Wilson: I’m so excited, and I can’t even tell you.

Luis Lecca: You’re so young and this is a horror film. How many of the horror scenes were you involved with on the actual set?  Where you kept away from it? Or you saw everything?

Lulu Wilson: I saw everything. I don’t really get scared that easily.  Only if someone like jumps out at me then I might get a little scared.  But I was there to do everything on set because I know it’s just a script and I know it’s all pretend.  I don’t go in on set thinking: “Oh someone is going to jump out on me. Someone is going to freak out.  Something weird is going to happen.”  I know it’s not going to happen.

Luis Lecca:  Have you had a chance to see the film with a crowd?

Lulu Wilson: I did.  It was awesome. All the scenes that the doll was in, or I was fighting the doll. Everyone was cheering… I was like “Yeah!.”  It made me feel so good and I was just so happy. I was laughing when people were screaming and it was just a lot of fun.

Luis Lecca: I’ve seen the reviews from some of the pre-screenings.  Everyone loves it. Were you familiar with the franchise,  The Conjuring, and the first film coming into this?

Lulu Wilson: I was. Right before I started shooting it,  I watched the first Annabelle.  I loved it. I watched it so much.  I loved it so much.  I thought it was great. I just thought it was perfect.  And I did watch the first Conjuring and then after I shot everything I watched the second one. My mom started freaking out whenever she was watching it.  She was like “you can’t do this.  It’s too scary!” and I was like “I don’t know what you’re talking about. It’s not scary at all.” I did read a lot about the actual Annabelle doll and I probably shouldn’t have because that freaked me out a lot when I walked onto the set,  I mean I knew that the Annabelle doll didn’t actually look like the one on set. But, I walked in and I was like “Wow, what if crazy stuff starts happening.”  I was just having all these thoughts but nothing did happen and I was very happy about that.

Luis Lecca:  Are you familiar with “Scream Queens” (an actress who has become associated with horror films) like Jamie Lee Curtis? Would that be something you want to be known as your career progress, as a lady that is known to do some awesome horror movies?  Would that be a good genre for you?

Lulu Wilson: I don’t know.  I love doing horror movies and stuff. But I feel like it’s nice to have a range and do other things even though horror films are the most fun to do. I feel like I should do all sorts of things like drama, comedy, and maybe some fantasy.  I’ve always wanted to do fantasy.

Annabelle: Creation is set to release in theaters on August 11, 2017.
