How The Haunting Of Bly Manor's Hannah Actress Felt About Episode 5's Huge Twist

Oh my God. So they were asking me as they collaborate, and I was still in London – I was shooting something else, Netflix’s Sex Education – and they sent Episodes 1-3, and I hadn’t got to 4 or 5 yet. And Mike was like, ‘Have you read up to 5 already? Have you read up to 5?’ I’m like, ‘No.’ So was Lynn [Falconer], the costume designer. And then when I got to it, I was like, ‘Shuuuut uuuuup. What? I’m a ghost! I’ve never played a ghost before. This is bloody exciting.’ And I love a good prank. I will prank you, scare you, and jump out, and you know, I live for those moments. So to play a ghost is super exciting. And then I was like, how am I going to play a ghost? I don’t know how to play that. I can’t base it on real life because I’m alive. I don’t know it feels like to be dead. [Laughs.] But she’s a ghost that doesn’t know that she’s a ghost, so then I was like, okay, I’ll just play her as somebody who wanders off into these memories and into these moments. I’m a bit ditzy in real life. I know I play these very educated, well put-together women, but I’m actually rather ditzy, so it sort of lended itself to Hannah in that way.
