“The Boy” Facebook Q&A


On December 2, 2015 Lauren did a Q&A on The Boy Movie Facebook page. I missed it unfortunately but I’ve copied her answers here:


Elisa Grimes: Hi Lauren! Thank you for being such an inspiration to young people. I love Maggie Greene so much and I wish you the best! So, first of all, did you like the locations where the movie was filmed?

The Boy Movie (Lauren): Thanks Elisa! Im so honoured to hear you say that.


Renee Hudson: hey lauren, will there be an explanation about how brahms got into the doll’s body?

The Boy Movie(Lauren): definitely!
The Boy Movie (Lauren): great question


Tina De Dycker: Hi Lauren, so awesome of you to do this, thank you! :)I have a few questions. Any idea when the movie will be released in Belgium? What drew you to the role exactly? And what is your favourite horror movie? Can’t wait to watch The Boy!

The Boy Movie (Lauren): will be out in Belgium on January 29th!


Camila Oliveira: hey lauren, what do you think your career would be if you weren’t an actress?

The Boy Movie (Lauren): i would like to work in a library


Sammi Payne: Hi Lauren! It’s Sammi
I am so excited to see you in this new movie! My question is did you watch any other horror movies to help get into this new role? I love horror movies and can’t wait to see my favorite actress starring in this one

The Boy Movie (Lauren): Thank you, sweetie! So excited for you guys to see it! I was always a fan of horror, so i had a good baseline for preparing for the role.


Jack Kidd: Hello, Lauren! I’m looking forward to your new movie! You are a phenomenal actress, on The Walking Dead and your previous appearances! I have a couple questions about your upcoming movie: 1.) With the horror happening in the film, how does your character, Greta, seem to overcome the fear of a live-doll? 2.) what was it like to be filming in BC for this film? Can’t wait to see your new movie, and I wish the best of luck to you and your career, you are so talented!

The Boy Movie (Lauren): At first, Greta doesn’t realize he’s alive, but when she does… you’ll see…

Shooting in BC was incredible, its one of the most beautiful cities.


Lauren Cohan Fanclub Hi Lauren & CONGRATULATIONS from your fans all over the World. First of all we are so proud of you and happy for your first experience as main character in a movie. We watched the crazy trailer and it looks like you were perfect for the role.

Much love, Cristina.

The Boy Movie (Lauren): Hi Cristina! Thanks for the question. When i was scared reading it, I knew it was something I had to do.
