Teresa Palmer Interview – Lights Out – “There were many scenes which were almost like flashbacks to my memories of what my own mum went through”



Teresa Palmer expects to be sleeping with the lights on for quite some time.  Folllowing her work on the new horror film, LIGHTS OUT, the Australian actress has developed an unnatural fear of things that go bump in the night.


Q:  There’s also the theme of mental illness as a backdrop to the story.  That’s a subject that is very relevant to both you and co-star Maria Bello?

PALMER:  Both Maria and I felt a very deep and powerful connection to that aspect of the story. My mother had been affected by mental illness and so it’s something that’s very familiar to me.   Maria’s portrayal was so accurate and authentic that I truly felt thrust back to moments in my childhood.
