Taking a break from filming a tense scene for Annabelle Comes Home on a Warner Brothers soundstage in Burbank, California, young star McKenna Grace is excited to chat with reporters about a special feature of the horror sequel’s production. TheAnnabelle Comes Home set was blessed by a priest to safeguard it from any nasty paranormal business, and the 12-year-old actor didn’t find it strange at all.
“Mr. Father Tom, who was our priest — he was very, very kind and nice and he gave me a rosary that was blessed by the Pope Francis,” Grace tells the group of reporters. “He brought holy water and he recited this prayer in the artifact room. And he blessed me and [co-stars] Madison [Inman] and Katie [Sarife] … It was a really cool experience.”
It was also a matter of life imitating art. The trailer for Annabelle Comes Home, the third film in the franchise (out June 28), starts off with The Conjuring’s paranormal investigator couple Ed (Patrick Wilson) and Lorraine Warren (Vera Farmiga) bringing home the possessed toy doll and having a priest bless it behind a sacred glass case in their artifact room. Grace plays Judy Warren, the couple’s 10-year-old daughter who becomes Annabelle’s next target, along with her babysitters Mary Ellen (Inman) and Daniela (Sarife).
