Olivia Cooke was a relative unknown when she was cast as like a sickly Dancy Drew-like character in Ema Decody in the “contemporary prequel” to the Alfread Hitchkock suspense classic Psycho, on A&E back in 2013 called Bates Motel.
Later the next year she was cast in her first leading film role for the horror film “The Quiet One”
one of a number of otherwise critically successfully preceding horror films such as Wake Wood, Let me in and Woman in Black by Hammer Films
She went on a spree of leading roles in a number of films
with varying degrees of overall success including 2014’s horror film “Ouija” and the science fiction thriller “The Signal” which was only given a limited US release but received favorable reviews.
