Vera shared that working in the dark world of horror ultimately made her stronger.

“I’d be lying if I said it didn’t affect me, the first two films. But I think I’ve toughened up,” she shared. “I had to do a lot of really weirdo research for this project. I’ve gone down some dingy holes.”

She also shared that when she had just taken on the role she received some valuable advice from the real Lorraine Warren, who was the real life inspiration for her character in the films.

“One of the first things Lorraine said to me is that, from her perspective and her knowledge of the diabolical, all of that negative stuff feeds on fear. That is probably something I’ve learned to push away year after year,” she laughed. “And that’s really, honestly, the trick — how does one do that? I don’t necessarily have a recipe for that, other than knowing the knowledge of that.”

The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It is in theaters and streaming on HBO Max.
