The movie centers on Kathryn Newton as Millie, a quiet high school girl with a couple of badass friends Nyla and Josh, played by Celeste O’Connor and Misha Osherovich. Her besties go through what the audience does during the body swap that leaves Millie in the body of Vince Vaughn’s Blissfield Butcher, thinking they’re going to die. At first, they are well aware that characters such as themselves are usually the first to go in the horror genre, with the funny line Osherovich repeated during our interview, but the actor feels as though it’s something that often rings true on film. In Freaky, the gay and Black best friends are not casualties in a major studio film! Yay, finally!
