I was today years old when I learned that the creepy little girl from The Haunting of Bly Manor is also the voice of Peppa Pig. It’s probably safe to say that life will never be the same.
The freaky Netflix series has sent chills down the spines of fans all around the world, but this discovery might just be the freakiest thing about the show.
Amelie Bea Smith is the actress behind the chilling little Flora Wingrave and a boisterous cartoon pig. And though the nine year old actress only took over the role of Peppa Pig from Harley Bird in January 2020, her voice is so Peppa that it can’t be unheard.
Fans of the series have been spiralling since the fun (freaky) little fact was uncovered.
APPARENTLY FLORA FROM THE HAUNTING OF BLY MANOR IS THE VOICE ACTRESS FOR PEPPA PIG??? I CAN’T UNHEAR THIS ANYMORE pic.twitter.com/sitHb4Cw45

The girl who voices Peppa Pig is in Haunting of Bly Manor and legitimately any time this girl speaks all I can see is a pig

The perfectly splendid feeling when you find out Flora from Haunting of Bly Manor also does the voice of Peppa Pig: pic.twitter.com/gFNzanOh8U

This is the literal definition of range.
And while most of us were appropriately shocked by the news, the debate raged on if knowing Flora and Peppa were the same person/pig/actress made The Haunting of Bly Manor even creepier, or ruined the whole show.
ok i’m just gonna say it: haunting of bly manor would be infinitely creepier if the girl who plays flora didn’t also voice peppa pig

If you’re watching The Haunting of Bly Manor, try to avoid finding out that the little girl is the voice of Peppa Pig because that completely changes it.

So the actress who plays flora ( the creepy lil English girl ) in the haunting of Bly manor voices peppa pig. I swear to god if I see any clips of that pig saying “perfectly splendid” I’m out #TheHauntingofBlyManor #peppapig

I’m leaning towards never watching either again because I don’t think my mind or heart can take it.
And, in another little fun fact for fans of movie classics: Uncle Henry (played by Henry Thomas) was bike-riding Elliott in ET.
You think that’s crazy I had no idea Uncle Henry was Elliott from ET ??? #HauntingOfBlyManor pic.twitter.com/4HWA2GwTlk
