Sarah Paulson is a huge fan of M. Night Shyamalan’s work, and she actually accepted her role in Glass sight unseen. Paulson plays Ellie Staple, a psychiatrist who aims to prove that David Dunn (Bruce Willis), Elijah Price (Samuel L. Jackson), and Kevin Wendell Crumb (James McAvoy) are not as powerful as they perceive themselves to be.
“It’s a grounded superhero movie,” said Paulson. “There’s something about it that feels that this is somehow possible and it makes you ask that question, ‘what if’ which I think is such a wonderful way to enter a world and a portal which I always feel like we’re doing when we go sit in the dark with a bunch of strangers and watch a movie. You really enter this universe.”
