In The Possession of Hannah Grace the main character is played by dancer and model Kirby Johnson.
“Kirby was great,” says director Diederik van Rooijen. “She has this ability to pop her arms and legs, and it’s scary. That helped create something special because most of that stuff is real, we did it live. There’s not a lot of CG in it.”
Diederik explains “We could actually play and have real reactions, which I think is nice for those kinds of scenes. We had an awesome time that day, but a lot of people were really scared [about] doing it. We had one person walk off the set and say, ‘This is too much for me.’ You have the feeling, Oh, we’re on the right track.”
“She can move in amazing ways,” adds Adrien Morot, who designed the special effects makeups for the film. “It’s really incredible what she can do with her body. The way she can cock her head looked almost like her head was already falling off.”
