And Jake & Co. don’t know what horrors will quickly be in retailer for them.
Whereas Tilly’s reappearance is bound to thrill long-time followers, the actress herself was simply as enthused to step again into Tiffany Valentine’s devilish heels.
“It’s so enjoyable to be part of this franchise, and Tiffany is such a fantastic character,” Tilly tells TVLine. “Each time Nick Caruso Don [Mancini] goes, ‘I’ve bought a brand new Chucky film they need me to do,’ I all the time hope there’s an element for me in it.”

In Seed of Chucky, Tilly then performed her actress self, as she was stalked by the maniacal dolls and later possessed by the Tiffany doll. She continued making smaller cameos within the two most up-to-date movies, which brings us on top of things with the present.
“When [Don] was doing the Chucky tv collection, I truthfully thought I’d be strolling by means of. I’d present up, smoke a cigarette, snuff it out and depart, and everybody could be like, ‘Was that Tiffany?’” says Tilly. “Don mentioned, ‘No, I wrote a extremely massive half for you!’ Once I bought [the script], I used to be so excited! Don loves Tiffany, and he will get actually excited, too. It’s very infectious.”
Not solely did Episode 5 flash again to the night time Chucky and Tiffany first met, however we discovered that Nica truly shares her physique with the deranged serial killer. After she sees the sight of blood, Nica fights her option to the forefront to reclaim management. (Name it Chucky‘s model of Jekyll and Hyde.) Shortly after she makes an attempt to free the killers’ hostage, Chucky usurps the motive force’s seat as soon as once more and slits the poor chap’s throat. (For those who’ll recall, Chucky previously framed Nica for a collection of murders which bought her dedicated to a psychological establishment. It was there that she fell sufferer to his soul-swapping voodoo.)
“I like working with Fiona, she’s so f–king proficient,” Tilly says. “She’s so nice with improv. If I toss stuff at her, she’ll throw it proper again. I present up on set in my excessive heels, smoking a cigarette, and [Dourif’s] throwing herself round, crying and falling on the ground and screaming. I am going, ‘Thanks, Fiona, for carrying the scene. I actually respect it!’”
Whereas Tilly is greater than beneficiant in the case of praising her fellow costar, die-hard Chucky followers know by no means to underestimate Tiffany… or Tilly, for that matter.
“In the previous couple of episodes, you’re going to see a lot of emoting from Miss Tilly. I’m gonna give little Fiona a run for her cash within the crying division!” she previews with fun.
As for what followers can anticipate from the remainder of the season, the actress supplies the next tease: “The s–t hits the fan. It turns into completely bonkers. It’s not somewhat mischief, it’s havoc and mayhem. It’s spectacular!”
