Interview with Lauren Cohan of ‘The Boy’


It would be easy to dismiss The Boy as typical January horror trash. I know that was my plan before I saw the film. However, to my great surprise, it turns out these filmmakers actually had a few tricks up their sleeves. The film is actually much more rooted in psychological horror than the trailer lets on, providing a new angle on the classic “alive doll” story we’ve seen done to death in these films. It may not be perfect, but it is clear that this was not a low budget cash grab. A great deal of the film’s success comes from the great work of Walking Dead star Lauren Cohan, who I had the pleasure of getting to chat with a few days ago. Both sweet and insightful, Lauren sheds some light on the creative process that went into The Boy.

When Michael Fairbanks first saw Sam Rami's Spider-Man film back in 2002, everything changed. The experience began a lifelong passion for cinema that has gone undeterred since. In 2009 he began reviewing movies on Youtube, which ultimately sprang into a lifelong passion for film criticism and entertainment reporting. He is currently studying screenwriting at Chapman University. Aside from seeing movies, Michael enjoys making bad puns while playing video games, going on long late night drives, and socializing over large plates of food.
