Fame and Troy were joined by the stars of newly released film The Boogeyman for a chat!

Sophie Thatcher (Yellowjackets) and Vivien Lyra Blair (Bird Box) answered a couple of quick questions about being scared while filming a horror flick and what their biggest fears are.

'How terrified were you guys filming the Boogeyman? Was there an actual boogeyman in front of you, or was a guy in a suit?,' Fame asked.

'I like to joke that the scarier a film is, the nicer the people are because they know that they're being scary in the movie, you know?', 10-year-old Vivien answered.

'I was actually pretty close with the guy who did the mocap stuff for the Boogeyman. He was a contortionist so he could do like a bunch of crazy movements.'

'But they never actually had a full size model.'

Troy then asked the pair what would be in their wardrobe if it contained their real life fear.

'It would be a Bird Scooter (e-scooter),' Sophie answered. 'Because I got in an accident. And Bird Scooters are evil and nobody should ever ride a Bird Scooter.'
