Actress Joey King has shared that while filming the horror movie, The Conjuring, she developed a blood disorder “out of nowhere.”
Back in 2013 King played Christine Perron, a little girl tormented by demons in the film. But in a new interview on “The Drew Barrymore Show,” King recalled that her time filming the horror flick makes her “shudder.”
“It was pretty intense. Some weird stuff happened on the set, along with the movie being scary,” King shared. “I developed this bizarre, rare, out-of-nowhere blood disorder, and basically, my body, like all the red platelets from my body were like drained. They were just gone.”
Her condition grew worse and worse throughout the course of film. At one point, King had to go to the hospital before each taping to ensure she wouldn’t need a blood transfusion.
However, King shared that as soon as the project finished filming, her condition went away.
“Then, all of a sudden, I got home, and I’ve never had a problem with my blood since,” she shared. “Every time I think about it, I just shudder a little bit.”
