Collider has word Kiana Madeira and Olivia Welch will play a pair of gay teenagers “trying to navigate their rocky relationship when they’re targeted by the crazy horrors of their small town, Shadyside” over the course of all three Fear Street movies. The outlet continues, “each actress will be playing two different characters—one in the mid-‘90s, and one in the 1600s, when gay women faced even greater adversity and repercussions.”
That I can say, only because other people have been saying it. So, yeah, I am in that, yes. My part takes place completely in the real world. So I didn’t have to interact with any of those weird little whatevers.
