It turns out that the character of Jeffrey Dean Morgan had a sequence in which he offered to the memory of a person: “It breaks my heart, but there was a wonderful scene between Diogo Morgado, who plays Monsignor Delgarde, and the character of Jeffrey”, Evan confessed: “In order not to give so much detail, there is a character who dies and the two mentioned have a moment seated, drinking to the memory of the deceased. They have a conversation about faith and its nature and why Satan wants to corrupt it. We had to cut it because it slowed down the plot, as it would come in after a terrifying scene and then we would go into this wonderful but static conversation. “

On the other hand, Spiliotopoulos revealed a peculiar story, since the house he lived in belonged to Jeffrey Dean Morgan, but the actor did not know: “The role was written for Jeffrey. I didn’t know him, but I have a curious connection to him. My previous house that I lived in for seven years I bought from Jeffrey.

WILL THERE BE A SEQUEL TO ‘PRAY FOR US’?
Pray for us It is not conceived as a film that has a continuation, however, the director does not rule out the possibility of making it, although there is a problem with the characters: “There are always ideas. The joke with the sequel is that all the actors tell me they want to come back. It’s a problem because, I’m not taking anything for granted, but half the characters die in this movie, so I honestly tell you that I don’t know how to get them back. “
Finally, Evan Spiliotopoulos confessed the time it took them to create the demon of the film, María Elnor, who was played by Marina Mazepa: “The development of the costumes and the mask took about three or four months in pre-production. The casting from Marina it was very fast; she is a wonderful contortionist. ” The funny thing about this is that the actress came to the film thanks to social networks: “We auditioned with five or six actresses and I saw a video of Marina on Facebook in which she plays a crazy Catwoman, so I asked the studio to call her for an audition; she was the right person. Once we were on set it took about two hours to apply makeup each day. “
