Do you remember Mackenzie Rosman? She used to play adorable little Ruthie Camden on 7th Heaven but now she’s all grown up and ready to take on more mature roles. The 19-year-old actress will be starring in the new Edgar Allan Poe film, known as Edgar Allan Poe’s Ligeia, in which she will play the role of Loreli.
The R rated film is about a successful writer named Jonathan Merrick (Wes Bentley) who falls under the spell of the bewitchingly beautiful Ligeia (Sofya Skya), who is fighting a fatal illness. In attempt to defeat death, Ligeia steals other people’s souls and drags Jonathan into her dark, mysterious world.
Prior to be being cast in Edgar Allan Poe’s Ligeia, Rosman guest starred in one episode of The Secret Life of the American Teenager as the character Zoe— her first TV appearance after starring on 7th Heaven for 11 years.
Mackenzie Rosman, who is steering away from goody-goody roles, could might as well be one of the new up and comers in Hollywood depending on critics’ reaction to her latest movie. But just in case this turns out to be a big flop, she’s already working on yet another horror thriller entitled Fading of the Cries, which is expected to hit theaters next year.
