With Millie Bobby Brown and Kyle Chandler playing a family in “Godzilla: King of the Monsters,“ it was a matter of time before another family member came. Variety reports that actress Vera Farmiga has been cast the sequel, playing the wife of Chandler’s character and Brown’s mother. No details have been revealed as to how this family and Godzilla fit together.
Farmiga got her big break with 2004’s “Down to the Bone” as a mother with a secret drug addiction. She would be cast in other films like the 2004 remake of “The Manchurian Candidate,“ “The Departed,“ and “The Boy in the Striped Pajamas.“ She got an Academy Award-nomination for Best Supporting Actress opposite to George Clooney in 2009’s “Up in the Air.“
Farmiga would go on to star in other films like “Orphan,” “Source Code,” “Safe House,“ and “Higher Ground,“ which was also her directorial debut. She primarily became known for her roles as Norma Bates in A&E‘s “Psycho” prequel series “Bates Motel“ and as real-life paranormal investigator and psychic Lorraine Warren in “The Conjuring” and its sequel. Besides film the fifth season of “Bates Motel,” Farmiga will next be seen in “Boundaries,“ “The Commuter,” and “Captive State.“
