Known for her role in Jumanji and Annabelle, actress Madison Iseman joins the cast as not one, but two characters.
“The most challenging part for me was the technical side to playing two characters. It was longer film days, which means I had double of everything. As far as making them different people, that’s always been fun for me, I love making characters and being able to channel my creative side,” says Madison Iseman, Actress, I Know What You Did Last Summer.
Actress Brianne Tju is co-starring alongside Iseman, bringing her skills from previous horror films to Amazon’s newest series.

Hawaii residents will be able to recognize familiar local hot spots, as the series was filmed and takes place in Hawaii.
“Being able to work with a lot of the locals was so much fun and for them to share their culture with us was a huge privilege,” says Ashley Moore, actress, I Know What You Did Last Summer.
