With the release of The Haunting of Bly Manor came more praise for Director Mike Flanagan and a lot of excitement over spotting familiar faces. However, if you listen closely, you'll hear a voice that sounds all too familiar — young Flora is also the voice of Peppa Pig.
Yes, the terrifying child in Bly Manor is also the voice of the children's cartoon character and popular internet meme, Peppa Pig, and fans find that to be "perfectly splendid."
Amelia Bea Smith is not the first child to voice Peppa Pig. As soon as an actor sounds too old, they're replaced with a younger British voice actor. Smith was passed the honors of voicing Peppa in 2019, and has held the role since 2020. So far, she's voiced the character in 13 episodes of the series.
Arguably why it's so shocking is the fact that Smith's voicing of Peppa is so innocent and childlike, while her performance as Flora is viciously haunting. However, her creepy moments are also defined by her kindness and innocence, making every character — and the audience — want to protect her at all cost.
