Olivia Scott Welch has become the new unofficial queen of screams thanks to her role in Netflix’s “Fear Street” trilogy. She played Deena’s (Kiana Madeira) on-again, off-again girlfriend, Samantha Fraser. She thought by moving out of Shadyside, she would be free of the witch’s curse, but she soon finds herself smack-dab in the middle of a centuries’ long conspiracy to keep the people of Shadyside in chaos while everyone in Sunnyvale lives in relative luxury. Welch appeared in all three installments and was a major highlight of the series.
By the sound of it, the young starlet will remain firmly in the genre that helped bring her to the general public’s attention. She signed on to star in the upcoming film “The Blue Rose,” which Deadline describes as a “surreal genre-bender.” That kind of description certainly makes it sound as though elements of horror could be in the mix, but it remains to be seen what this mysterious project is truly all about. Here’s everything we know at this point about “The Blue Rose.”
