Sosie Bacon Reveals the Extremely Dark Way She Got Into Character for ‘Smile’

Sosie Bacon, 30, had trouble picturing her role in “Smile” during a recent MVPs of Horror interview with Yahoo Entertainment.

Unlike its predecessors, Smile acquired a significant following before its release. The horror movie had an appealing trailer that contributed to the film’s box office results- it grossed over $100 million worldwide. The smile may seem creeptastic at first, but it’s hard to unsee once you get used to it. (Bacon also had the benefit of watching the 2020 short film Laura Hasn’t Slept, on which writer-director Parker Finn based Smile.)

“This movie was so well-written that it disturbed me,” Bacon says. “It’s rare to find a horror flick with this many jump scares that is also this fun and character-driven.”

Dr. Rose Cotter, the psychiatrist assigned to Bacon’s character, watches in horror as a patient describes paranormal events happening to her. The patient then flashes an eerie smile and proceeds to cut her own throat right in front of Dr. Cotter. Rose is stuck in a nightmarish scenario that’s similar to The Ring, where she’s being haunted by an evil force. She realizes that this entity is making people who see the suicides kill themselves within one week. But not before they go through psychological torment first.

Smile contains some truly harrowing scenes, but also spotlights Bacon’s brilliant performance. If the name sounds familiar, it’s because she is the daughter of Hollywood legends Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick. In addition to Smile, you might have seen her in her father’s 2005 directorial debut Loverboy or her mother’s long-running procedural The Closer. Most recently, she starred in Netflix’s adaptation of Jay Asher’s 13 Reasons Why. You could say that Smile members are quite lucky to witness such a star on the rise; plus, minus some brief flashbacks, Bacon is present in every scene.

(Photo: Amanda Edwards/WireImage) “Yeah, it’s not typical to be in every frame as the lead,” she says candidly. It’s an amazing accomplishment- especially because of the demanding nature of the material. Sedgwick had to draw from a lot of personal stamina for this role; something Kyra is no stranger to giving her past work on television (The Closer).

By appearing in the movie, Bacon is continuing in her father’s footsteps; in 1980 starred in.

Ever since then, he has had non-stop staring in horror films such as (1990), (1999), (2000), and more recently,  (2020).
