What drew you to this role? It’s fun to explore this question about what comes after death. Also, I hadn’t done straight-up horror before, so that felt like a cool challenge— and there were stunts! What was it like working with this cast? It was a blast; we couldn’t have gotten along better! We hung out all the time and chilled at each other’s places. Nina [Dobrev] organized a cottage weekend for us. Have you ever had a near-death experience?

According to court documents, Burnett, 55, who lives in Georgia, claims C.M. keeps the baby boys in “deplorable” living conditions in his invalid parents’ Georgia basement, and that her brother allegedly suffers from “serious personality and mental problems,” raising critical questions about the single father’s abilities to care for the kids. C.M.’s attorney Robert Walmsley says the accusations are “filled with false claims.” Cook, whose attorney Harold Cassidy plans to argue the case in the U.S. Court of Appeals in California next month, says, “It’s a horror story.…
