CT HorrorFest 2018’s ‘Child’s Play’ Panel with Alex Vincent

On Saturday September 15th, CT HorrorFest presented a Child’s Play panel and Q&A from the Danbury Ice Arena in Danbury, CT.  On the 30th anniversary of that seminal horror film, HNN staff writer Sean McLaughlin was honored to interview actor Alex Vincent in front of the packed crowd.

At just six years old, Vincent portrayed Alex Barclay, the youngster terrorized by the murderous doll Chucky, in the 1988 film.  The New Jersey native would go on to reprise the role in the 1990 sequel Child’s Play 2, before taking a break from the franchise (and acting in general) for more than two decades.  2013 would see Vincent’s surprise return to the Child’s Play lineage in the after-credits scene of Curse of Chucky.

Vincent took questions from the fans as well, covering everything from his experiences on the set of the first two films, working with veteran actors like Chris Sarandon and Brad Dourif at such a young age, his feelings on the direction of the franchise, and his overall thoughts on the movie industry as a whole.  He even shared amusing stories on his first audition, his little sister playing Chucky on screen, and much more.  Enjoy the full panel interview and Q&A below!
