Kate Siegel will next star as Jenn in Netflix’s new film, Hypnotic. The psychological thriller premieres on October 27. The actress can also be seen portraying Erin Greene in Midnight Mass. All seven episodes of the series are currently streaming on Netflix.
Feeling stuck both personally and professionally, Jenn (Kate Siegel), a young woman reeling from a series of traumatic events, enlists a renowned hypnotherapist, Dr. Meade (Jason O’Mara), to help on her road to recovery. After a handful of intense sessions, terrifying events, and mysterious blackouts, Jenn soon finds herself caught in a dangerous mind game. With the help of Detective Wade Rollins (Dulé Hill), Jenn looks to put the pieces together before it’s too late and there are deadly consequences.
Siegel is best known for her roles in The Haunting of Hill House and The Haunting of Bly Manor. The actress both starred in and co-wrote Hush as well. Other notable film credits include Oculus, Ouija: Origin of Evil, Steam, and Gerald’s Game.
