Lawrence, in an Entertainment Weekly interview, shares the meme that transformed Davis into a haunting figure, cementing her as a perfect fit for the menacing character. Dive into Lawrence’s revelation and the meme that sealed Davis’ role!

It was a piece of fan art, and somebody had photoshopped, I think, an image of her standing by a window. It may be a still from The Help, but she had this sort of sinister little smile and they had made mocked up a fake horror poster as if she was the villain in this. I was like, ‘Wow, you know what? She may be really good for this.’ She has this gravitas, but she could be playful and quirky and get all of that. It’d be very different for her. I don’t think we’ve seen her do this kind of thing a lot.
