The 44-year-old actress revealed on The Graham Norton Show, airing Friday (January 11), that she didn’t even read the script when she was offered the role of Dr. Ellie Staple in the movie, which brings together the narratives from 2000′s Unbreakable and 2016′s Split.
“I burst into tears when M. Night Shyamalan called to tell me,” Sarah expressed on the show. “I really wanted to work with him. I said yes without even looking at the script. It was desperation and admiration.”
