Heather Michele O’Rourke (Carol Anne Freeling)
Steven Spielberg (Story)
Release Date: 19 August 1982
Company: Metro Goldwyn Mayer (MGM)
This horror classic from Spielberg has a very young 5-year old Heather playing Carol Anne, an innocent child who unconsciously stirs spirits and an evil entity from the forgotten graveyard below her house. She is a highly intuitive child and shares an eerie and unexplained psychic connection to the spirit world. Unfortunately for her, Carol Anne’s life force has attracted the attention of the restless souls, who engage her in small talk and pleasant conversation – through the television!
Considered her signature performance.
