In the psychological horror The Portrait, after a tragic accident that takes Alex (Ryan Kwanten)’s memories and his ability to speak, his devoted wife, Sofia (Natalia Cordova-Buckley), moves him to a mansion owned by his family, hoping familiar surroundings might jar his memory. When she finds a mysterious portrait that looks exactly like her husband, she becomes obsessed. She soon meets Alex’s relative, Mags (Virginia Madsen), who believes the painting is inhabited by their ancestor Calvin, a man who was violent with women and committed murder before he disappeared and was never seen again. When strange things start happening, Sofia questions her sanity. Is the painting possessed by a malevolent force or is she losing her mind? Sofia must confront her fears and find the truth before it’s too late.
Recently, Cordova-Buckley and Madsen spoke with SciFi Vision about working on the film, including their characters’ relationship, working with the cast and crew, filming at the mansion, what their favorite horror films are, and much more.
