Emma’s ‘The Shining’ obsession
American actor Emma
Roberts (above) says she was hooked on to Stephen King’s novel The Shining while she was working in the TV series, American Horror Story.
The 26-year-old, who’s a self-confessed book lover, says she prepares for every character she portrays after a thorough book reading, reported Elle.com.
“When I was doing American Horror Story, I was reading a lot of Stephen King and
became obsessed with The Shining. And then I also read Shutter Island. Books are a fun way to get yourself in a certain mindset or mood as an actress,” says Roberts. “I always pick out a bookshelf for every character I play. I get around three or five books to have with me while I’m playing a character,” she adds.
The Scream Queens actor and her friend Karah Preiss have started Belletrist, a book club any avid reader can sign up for.
