Get to Know Young 'The Boogeyman' Star Vivien Lyra Blair (Exclusive)

Vivien Lyra Blair is stealing the screen in the new movie The Boogeyman!

The young actress stars in the horror/thriller film, which just hit theaters last Friday (June 2), and is based on the short story by Stephen King.

Here’s a synopsis: High school student Sadie Harper (Sophie Thatcher) and her younger sister Sawyer (Blair) are reeling from the recent death of their mother and aren’t getting much support from their father, Will (Chris Messina), a therapist who is dealing with his own pain. When a desperate patient unexpectedly shows up at their home seeking help, he leaves behind a terrifying supernatural entity that preys on families and feeds on the suffering of its victims.

You may also recognize Vivien from another big role – young Leia Organa (aka Princess Leia) in the Disney+ series Obi-Wan Kenobi.

  • 1. I have a simian line on both hands which is really rare, less than 1% of the population has it!
