The beautiful Vera Farmiga has transformed into a star thanks to her successful roles as Norma Bates from BATES MOTEL and Lorraine Warren from THE CONJURING. At this point in time we are only a few week's away from BATES MOTEL's television return and it can't seem to get here quick enough. Vera recently spoke out in an interview with AintItCoolNews shedding some light on the topics of what we can look for in season 2 of BATES MOTEL as well as the possible follow up films to THE CONJURING.
She was asked about working with director James Wan, co-star Patrick Wilson, and THE CONJURING she says:
"As you know, I cherish my collaborations with Patrick [Wilson] and with James [Wan], and I really have an admiration for the woman that I play. I think it’s an important story; I’m not just making another horror flick,. I really think this is the go-to gal for over the last five decades that people have gone to for discernment on certain negative mysticism. It’s a crazy subject matter. It’s bigger than my brain can contemplate. So, I’m hoping to see CONJURING 2 sooner than later."
She was asked about the possibility of us getting to see more of Lorraine and Ed Warren and she said:
"I think so. There are so many more stories to tell, and obviously it was a vital thing for New Line, and it seems implausible to not go for number 2 and even number 3. But, I don't know anything concrete just yet. I think it’s being figured out right now. Because of course, we’d love to have James Wan at the helm, and he’s experienced a certain measure of…stress recently."
Switching gears over to the topic of BATES MOTEL Farmiga says:
"Season 2 is going to be pretty splendid I think. I've never had the luxury of shooting a season 2 on a television show. I’ve done two before this, and I’ve never had the opportunity to do a 13-episode arc. So, it’s really cool what happens in Season 2, when you solidify your collaboration with the writers;they honor what your fortes are as an actor. You go deeper, even deeper because there’s a viable friendship that’s set up with your castmates, and there's a kind of trust and a way to push each others buttons. There’s just a bigger trust and a love that’s established, so it’s really cool and wacky what happens with Season 2."
Look for BATES MOTEL season 2 on A&E March 3rd.
