Shay Mitchell: “She’s Trying to Prove Something to Herself”

The TV series “Pretty Little Liars” made Canadian actress Shay Mitchell (31) famous. Now, in the exorcism shocker “The Possession of Hannah Grace”, she’s got her first big starring role.

As night watchperson in a morgue, Shay Mitchell’s character Megan Reed is finally confronted with pure fear when a series of bizarre acts of violence seems to have a supernatural origin. “I liked the fact that my character Megan doesn’t just die, but just keeps her head above water”, says Shay Mitchell. “She wants to prove to herself that she can do the job. To spend the whole night in a morgue would surely be a very lonely thing for you and me. But Megan has experienced many ups and downs in her life. So it’s almost reassuring for her to be surrounded by bodies”. The horror shocker “The Possession of Hannah Grace” will be showing at KITAG CINEMAS from Thursday.
