In the film industry, there are mainly two types of actors: those who have succeeded thanks to key roles they have given life to and those who have assumed such varied roles, but whose careers have not been recognized as they deserve.
Among those considered undervalued, one of the names that comes to the fore is Patrick Wilson, who throughout his career has been immersed in multiple stories of different genres. This is how we have seen it since metahuman in Watchmen and Aquaman even in the award-winning drama Little children, in which he starred opposite Kate Winslet, who earned an Oscar nomination for her performance in the film.
While Wilson’s performance has been consistent and well received by viewers in the various feature films he has participated in, it was as a result of The spell when he achieved world star status. However, this saga and its different derived stories have not been the only ones that have positioned it as a reference.
Before becoming the demonologist expert Ed warren, the actor has been part of another scary franchise. Both roles have meant a rebirth of his career and, curiously, the respective deliveries have James Wan as the architect.
The 48-year-old actor’s beginnings in fear date back to 2010, when he found an unexpected niche: horror movies. That year he gave life to Josh Lambert in Insidious – known as La noche del demonio in Spanish-speaking countries – where he explored a vulnerable version of the firm fatherhood that films of this type are used to offering, although at first they have not. shown that way.
The character lived in denial in the presence of ghosts and other paranormal entities. However, the evolution of the story tells us that everything has its origin in Lambert’s experience with these dark figures. This opens an opportunity to learn about the context and the following plot twists.
A continuation brought Wilson back in the aforementioned role. However, this time the synopsis revolved around a Josh Lambert stuck in a demonic dimension, while his body wanders on the earthly plane with an entity as its new inhabitant. In that sense, we can affirm that Insidous gave us a glimpse of the diabolical siege of his target.
For his part, Ed Warren is the complete opposite of Mr. Lambert: In The Conjuring, Wilson brings to life a more stable figure and who takes the reins — along with Lorraine, his wife — in spiritual struggles. In this case, he puts aside his image as a victim to lead investigation cases that revolve around possessions and where a religious presence is the basis of the solution.
In fact, for Ed, a crucifix or citing the Latin paragraphs of a biblical manuscript cease to be simple accessories or means of support and are positioned as true weapons of war, where the religious conviction of the man of faith becomes something notorious to the view. It is as if your fear of the divine is almost as strong as your belief in evil. In that sense, the feeling of fear is projected in a more realistic way.
Despite the criticism that The Conjuring 3 has received compared to its previous installments, it is undeniable that the chemistry between the characters of Wilson and Vera Farmiga involves us in something more than an ordinary tape that seeks to scare, its purpose is that you live a complete experience. Likewise, both interpretations achieve, in addition, that the viewer feels empathy for them, that they feel them as if they were real and this is what the specialized opinion has highlighted the most.
