The Unreal Transformation of Bonnie Aarons Into ‘The Nun’

Published

Horror films have always featured some astonishing makeup transformations. Many times, fellow actors forget what their co-stars actually look like underneath it all. One star spooked audiences everywhere this year, and there’s a good chance you’ve seen her before.

Paint Me Down

For Bonnie Aarons, portraying the role of Valak has been a life changing experience. First appearing in The Conjuring 2, the character would soon have its own film with The Nun.

Warner Bros. Entertainment

Getting into character wasn’t that hard for Aarons. “There are no prosthetics, and my face was hand-painted by the incredible Eleanor Sabaduquia. She hand-painted my face every single time, and it had to do with performance and the direction of Corin Hardy,” she told We Got This Covered.

Face To Face

When it came to working on The Nun, Hardy needed to make sure his star was going to be returning. “Once I got the job of directing The Nun, I immediately said, “I hope we’ve made sure that the actress who originally played her is available. I didn’t want to think of casting anyone else,” he told Rue Morgue.

One of Aarons strongest features is her face, and that’s what made fans love her character. “I just felt [that] she has got such a unique presence, and her face, the physical look of her face, is so cinematic and terrifying,” Hardy told Daily Dead.

Bum Before Nun

Aarons’ first noticable role was the Bum in the critically acclaimed film Mulholland Drive. Landing the role from David Lynch was a “right place, right time” moment. “I actually met him at a Twin Peaks party, and he was like, ‘Look at that face!’” she told Vulture.

Universal Pictures

The actress also made appearances in The Princess DiariesThe Fighter, and Silver Linings Playbook. With future roles in Adi Shankar’s Gods and Secrets and Wizardream, we’re sure Aarons will deliver astonishing performances with or without makeup.
