Taissa Farmiga, younger sister of the actress Vera Farmiga who plays Lorraine Warren in the saga “Conjuring”, will join the franchise by interpreting the young nun in the second spin-off.
In the first two seasons of the hit American Horror Story series, Taissa Farmiga will play the spin-off nun, The Nun, but only in scenes where the villain of the film is still young, Deadline tells us. It would therefore be mainly flashbacks, or introductory scenes since the nun turns quickly to nightmare!
Taissa Farmiga is the sister of Vera Farmiga who plays Larraine Warren, one of the first two roles in the Conjuring saga. She will not meet her sister – twenty-one years old! – in The Nun, since the Warren spouses are not in the credits of these spin-offs, supposed to take place long before their investigations.
Directed by Corin Hardy (The Sanctuary) and produced by James Wan (Conjuring), The Nun is scheduled to release in July 2018. In the credits, Taissa Farmiga will confront Demian Bichir (The Eight Husbands, Alien: Covenant). This is the second spin-off of the saga Conjuring after Annabelle, whose sequel will be released in the French theaters on August 9, 2017.
