Lily Collins Claims She Was Visited by Ghosts of Victims While Shooting Ted Bundy Biopic
In a recent interview with the Guardian, actress Lily Collins claimed to have been visited by the deceased victims of Ted Bundy while preparing for her role in the Netflix biopic Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile.
Ted Bundy was a serial killer who murdered over 30 girls and women in seven states during the 1970s. Collins plays his long-term girlfriend, Elizabeth Kloepfer, who espoused his innocence at the time of his trial before eventually distancing herself from Bundy after becoming sober.
Collins said that she would consistently awaken every night at 3:05 a.m. over the Christmas holidays.
“I would go downstairs and have a cup of tea, trying to figure out why I had woken up again," she said. “I started being woken up by flashes of images, like the aftermath of a struggle. I discovered that 3 a.m. is the time when the veil between the realms is the thinnest and one can be visited.”
Collins suspected that perhaps the women murdered by Bundy were trying to contact her.
“I didn’t feel scared—I felt supported,” she said. “I felt like people were saying: ‘We’re here listening. We’re here to support. Thank you for telling the story.’”
Collins reportedly related her experiences in a very matter-of-fact manner; something not altogether uncommon, especially among celebrities.
In December of 2018, actress Jennifer Aniston spoke frankly to James Corden on The Late Late Show about her experience living in a haunted house. And in April of that year, actor Martin Freeman admitted to being open to the idea of the "afterlife, and supernatural activities, and ghosts."
