Preston & Steve Show Flashback: Actress Lin Shaye Visits The Studio
In 2015, the ever-talented Lin Shaye came into the station and talked to the Preston and Steve gang. Known for her unwavering passion for character acting and horror work in the Insidious franchise, it was a memorable day when she joined us on the show.
Her dedication to her craft was evident when she recounted her Dumb and Dumber role and landing the part, playing a prostitute in her first film, and the story of when she received the Insidious script at one in the morning and love it, though she humorously confessed to locking it in a closet to keep it at a safe distance because of how terrifying it was. It’s her innate ability to connect with her characters and immerse herself in her roles that has made her a standout in the industry.
Several years later we are still reminiscing on her interview:
As we take a walk down memory lane, we want to wish her a happy birthday, and share a hilarious memory from her and Nick all those years ago, which he posted to Instagram.
Her contributions to cinema, from iconic roles in cult classics like “Kingpin” to her performances in the “Insidious” series are nothing but admirable and enjoyable to those who have watched. We are so happy Lin is a friend of WMMR, and wish her the happiest of birthdays today.
