Kristen Cui On Knock at the Cabin
In the movie, Kristen Cui plays Wen, the 7-year-old adopted daughter of Andrew (actor Ben Aldridge) and Eric (actor Jonathan Groff).
As per the synopsis, as the story takes off Wen and her parents are seen vacationing at a remote cabin when they are taken hostage by four armed strangers who demand that the family make an unthinkable choice to avert the apocalypse.
In her recent interview with viewties.co.uk, Kristen talked about auditioning to get the role of Wen and what she had to do to play it as genuinely as possible. She opened up about how she had taped an audition, and had a few callbacks with Mr. Night on Zoom, before landing the role. “It was so exciting”, she chimed.
When asked what was it that helped her in becoming this character, she answered that she did it by pretending to be in the cabin knowing that every move she made could make a difference in the setting.
