Scream VI star Samara Weaving mocks the ‘Illuminati’ conspiracy while showing off her rarely seen ankle tattoo on The Late Late Show with James Corden
She had a scene stealing role as the first victim in the blockbuster Scream VI.
And Samara Weaving was having a blast on Thursday when she was interviewed alongside Josh Gad on The Late Late Show with James Corden.
The Australian actress, 31, joked about having an ‘Illuminati’ tattoo as she showed off her rarely seen ink on her ankle.
But all jokes aside, he said the tattoo wasn’t actually a sign of the shadowy elite group at the center of many conspiracy theories.
Actually, he said, it was a tribute to his love for the Harry Potter franchise.
Samara Weaving (pictured at Paris Fashion Week March 6) had a blast Thursday when she was interviewed alongside Josh Gad on The Late Late Show with James Corden.
She said she was a lifelong fan of the Wizarding World and was very excited when she was cast in the 2019 film Guns Akimbo opposite Daniel Radcliffe, who played the Boy Who Lived in the Harry Potter films based on the best-selling books of JK Rowling.
Samara said she had to keep her tattoo, an icon from the Deathly Hallows movies, on the ‘downlow’ during filming to avoid scaring Daniel.
However, this was complicated by the fact that the two actors spent a lot of time together during their four weeks of training as stuntmen.
The Australian actress, 31, joked about having an ‘Illuminati’ tattoo as she showed off her rarely seen ink on her ankle. Actually, the tattoo is a reference to the Harry Potter books.
During her action sequences, Samara wore ‘super long socks’ to cover her tattoo, but found herself in an awkward situation when she forgot to wear them to set one day.
“She was trying to be really cool, like, ‘Oh hi, Dan,’ she said, but was finally shocked when the 33-year-old Brit got a tattoo.
‘Is it what I think it is?’ she asked circumspectly.
Samara had an awkward moment a few years ago when she was shooting a movie with Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe, and he recognized the symbol on her ankle.
‘No, it’s not,’ Samara replied, prompting Daniel to ask, ‘So what is it?’
The Babysitter star then quipped: ‘I’m in the Illuminati!’ before immediately admitting that it was a Harry Potter tattoo.
However, she reassured him: ‘It’s not about you, it’s about the books.’
