What did Isabelle have to say about reprising her role of Esther in ‘Orphan: First Kill’?
During an interaction with People, Isabelle said, “I definitely didn’t think I would ever be wearing those pigtails ever again. I also don’t think I wanted to when I was a kid. I was terrified everyone was going to only see me in one way, that I was going to get typecast and I wouldn’t have any sort of career.”
The 25-year-old actress further added, “I had so much excitement and love for Esther that coming back to this weirdly felt like going home. It was the first movie I’d ever done, so it felt like this chapter in my life, and I got to revisit who I was when I was 10 years old playing this role.”
Fuhrman concluded by saying, “I had to lean into the fact that it wasn’t going to be exactly the same, but that I could find something new and fresh that would still be what it was and would have the same essence. Because if I played her before, of course I could do it again.”
