The Haunting of Bly Manor's Flora is actually the voice of Peppa Pig
If you have yet to watch The Haunting of Bly Manor on Netflix, you need to watch The Haunting of Bly Manor on Netflix.
It's terrifying, it's touching, it's set in the '80s so the outfits are absolutely bangin' - I could go on, but I won't. The Mike Flanagan anthology is the greatest horror TV show to be released in years. That's all you need to know in regards to the reasons why it should be at the top of your watchlist. Fin.
Alas, a tidbit of information that you can enjoy without even having seen the series (but seriously, do watch it) is that one of its stars is actually the voice of Peppa Pig.
Yes, the Peppa Pig is starring in a scary TV show about ghosts and guilt and getting lost in memories. 2020, eh?
The star in question is Amelie Bea Smith, and she plays the equal parts terrifying and adorable Flora Wingrave.
In Flora's eyes, everything is "perfectly splendid." Her new nanny is "perfectly splendid." Her dolls' house is "perfectly splendid." Even the fact that her parents have died a gruesome death and her uncle refuses to have anything to do with her is "perfectly splendid," somehow.
So is the fact that she has also voiced Peppa Pig since this year. Fair play to her, like - the girl's got range.
Nine-year-old Amelie was first cast as the iconic British pig earlier this year. She is the second voice actor to take over the role since the kids' TV show began, all the way back in 2004.
She also appeared in several episodes of EastEnders in 2018 and 2019, before eventually landing herself a starring role on The Haunting of Bly Manor.
The series (watch it, honestly) tells the haunting story of the Wingrave children and their staff, who live in Bly Manor in the British country following the untimely death of their parents.
Based on The Turn of the Screw by Henry James, the series has received many positive reviews from fans and critics alike since its release.
