Irish actress Alisha Weir has shared a terrifying trailer for her forthcoming movie, ABIGAIL. The 14-year-old from Dublin shot to fame in the title role of the 2022 hit film, MATILDA THE MUSICAL. Due to be released April 19, distributor Universal Pictures describes the movie as ‘a brash, blood-thirsty new vision of the vampire flick’. The cast also includes DOWNTON ABBEY star Dan Stevens, BREAKING BAD‘s Giancarlo Esposito and late Irish-American actor Angus Cloud, who passed away in July 2023 at the age of 25. The film is directed by Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett, who helmed the two most recent SCREAM movies that revitalised the horror franchise.
