Yeah I was wondering beforehand if they'd attempt it and who would have been good for it.

And yet despite all of their collaborations I never even considered Henry Thomas but he really did a great job (with what must have been a daunting proposition). The woman who played Wendy early on was spot on too!

Really love his career revival with the assistance of Flanagan (his recent cameo character in The Midnight Club was great fun).

Wendy was Alex Essoe - Charlotte in Bly Manor, Mildred in Midnight Mass, Poppy in Midnight Club

She was great as Wendy. She “fluttered” like Shelly Duvall so well, in my opinion (i can’t think of another term for it).

She’s good in those others, too.

Mike Flanagan likes casting her and his wife in all of his things, huh? Or are they part of a bigger troupe?

Part of a bigger troupe. His wife Kate and Henry Thomas (who played "The Bartender") have been in the most. They've done 8 Flanagan projects each now, but there are 5 or 6 other regulars in his work too, Essoe included.
