Claire Forlani Gets Over Her Fear Of Stephen King For New Miniseries

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – When it comes to playing alongside the supernatural, actress Claire Forlani is an old pro.

The actress – who is best known for playing alongside Brad Pitt’s lovestruck Grim Reaper in the 1998 flick Meet Joe Black – now finds herself in another creepy situation as one of the cast members in the upcoming Stephen King miniseries Nightmares And Dreamscapes.

Forlani – who is reportedly dating Keanu Reeves – admits that for a long time, she avoided the horror genre altogether because she freaks out easily. She admits she couldn’t even finish watching Misery, a film based on King’s novel about an obsessive fan, because “it was just too scary.”

Although her segment of the series takes place in a creepy London suburb, Forlani says the only thing that gave her the heebie-jeebies during filming were the child actors on set.

Says Forlani: “They looked like they were straight out of a time warp and with wind machines and the kids speaking with scary voices we all started to realize that this story is pretty f■■king creepy.”

Nightmares And Dreamscapes debuts July 12 on TNT.
