On January 24, The Turning's Brooklyn Prince revealed to Young Hollywood that she only accepted the role of Flora when she heard that Stranger Things' Finn Wolfhard (Mike Wheeler) was going to play her fictional brother.
It started when the interviewer asked Finn (Miles Fairchild) and Brooklyn (Flora Fairchild) why they decided to accept their respective roles in The Turning (2020).
Check out Brooklyn's response below:
I "I didn't [want to], but then I heard [Finn] was playing my brother and then I was like, 'Uh, I'm doing it.'"
And Finn confirmed that this was a true story!
Finn then explained that he hadn't watched The Florida Project (2017) at the time, in which Brooklyn starred as Moonee in the movie. Finn revealed that even though he was already excited for the role, he would've been even more so had he seen the movie.
Check out what Finn said below:
I "I didn't end up watching Florida Project. If I did watch Florida Project, I would've [accepted the role] even more. I would've been even more, like, positive about it."
What was the hardest part about filming The Turning (2020)?
According to Finn, it was the time they got snowed in and was unable to leave their hotel in Ireland for 3 or 4 days.
Brooklyn still managed to have a little fun, though, because she took the opportunity to go sledding. However, it didn't last as by the second day, Brooklyn was completely over it, announcing that she was "done with snow".
