On this episode of The Filmcraziest Show, I was able to talk with Vancouver-based British actress Georgia Waters, where we spoke about her roles on Freeform’s fantasy mermaid show Siren, where she played the role of Eliza in the second and third seasons; as well as her role as Rose in the 2020 horror film Toys of Terror.
A bit about each project: Siren spanned three seasons and is available to stream on Disney+ as a drama/fantasy show about the coastal town of Bristol Cove that is known for its legend of once being home to mermaids and is turned upside down when a mysterious girl (Eline Powell’s Ryn) appears and begins wreaking havoc.
In Toys of Terror, Georgia plays a nanny called Rose, who travels with a family as they move into a secluded mansion over the Christmas holidays as the parents of the family plan to renovate it. The kids find a chest in the attic with a group of toys that come to life and then bizarre events start to take place as we settle into the horror film that pays homage to Joe Dante films.
We first discuss her role on Freeform’s Siren as we talk about coming onto a show where the mythology is already established, how primal the mermaids are, as well as getting used to the swimming on the show and that training, as well as learning the clipped way of speaking of these characters, some of her favourite character moments and much more.
Then we transition into Toys of Terror and we speak about what attracted her to the character of Rose, horror movies, writing to JK Rowling in hopes of being cast in Harry Potter as a kid, as well as what it was like interacting with the actual toys on set, and there’s more. You can stream Siren on Disney+ and you can find rental options for Toys of Terror here.
