Orphan’s Isabelle Fuhrman on Playing a Very Bad Girl

She’s really not scary off the screen!

-Stephanie Elliot

The frightening new Warner Bros.’ movie Orphan introduces us to Esther, a seemingly angelic adopted child who turns out to be demonic. In the week since its release it has stirred up plenty of publicity – from horror fans who rave about it to adoption organizations who are outraged. At the center of it all is 12-year-old actress Isabelle Fuhrman who plays Esther.

Betty caught up with Isabelle to ask her what it’s like to play such a bad girl and more.

Did playing a bad girl make you act like a bad girl at home while you were filming?

Fuhrman: Not at all! When I’d come home from the set I would paint, sculpt, watch mindless TV or read a book. I could dip in and out of character easily.

What did you think watching yourself on the big screen?

Fuhrman: It was really cool to see myself on the big screen. It was so different! But I didn’t really see it as myself; I watched the movie just like others in the theater; laughing at the funny parts and feeling scared at the scary parts.

    She is cute, I’ve yet to see the movie but she looks frightening in the trailers

  3. Shanece says:

    Isabelle Fuhrman will remain an evil little kid, until she does a movie that casts her in a completely different role.

    Remember Daveigh Chase? She played Samara in The Ring. That little girl still gives me nightmares!

  4. Fern says:

    She sounds very bright, but I worry about how this kind of role might mess you up down the line. Hopefully she’ll be OK

    How is it that children can be soooo scary?
