Lauren Wood on what’s next for her new film Into the Woods
Shailene Wood was born with the rare genetic condition called ‘genetic epilepsy’.
She now lives in New York City where she makes her debut in Into the woods.
The film follows a young woman who is haunted by a serial killer in her home town.
She was born in New Mexico in 2006.
She has also been married to filmmaker Laura Benanti, but the pair split after three years.
She now resides in New Hampshire.
The star is no stranger to controversy, having been subjected to several negative reviews for her previous film, A Man for All Seasons.
Her latest film is a much different take on the subject.
A Man for all Seasons is about a man who is left with the condition and finds himself at the centre of an international mystery.
In a film that centres on a woman and her children, Shailean Wood’s journey is much different than her previous films.
The story of a woman who has been left with a rare genetic disorder that causes epilepsy, Into the Wood is set to release in 2017.
Its release comes just days after a number of critics called for the film to be pulled from release, after it was pulled from screenings due to a number on the internet were showing clips of the film on social media.
Shailene’s film, which is currently in pre-production, is set for release in late 2017.
