ICYMI, “The Fall of the House of Usher”‘s Mike Flanagan and Kate Siegel Are Married
Did you know that there’s a real-life couple behind the chills and thrills of Netflix’s biggest horror hits? Writer-director Mike Flanagan – who created “The Haunting of Hill House,” “The Haunting of Bly Manor,” “Midnight Mass,” “The Midnight Club,” and 2023’s “The Fall of the House of Usher” – is married to actor Kate Siegel, who’s appeared in almost all of his Netflix series. In “The Fall of the House of Usher,” Siegel plays Camille, a public-relations maven and one of the many children of Roderick Usher.
It turns out, horror is pretty intrinsic to Flanagan and Siegel’s bond. They met on the set of a horror movie and have been working together on a bunch of scary thriller projects ever since. Back in 2021, Siegel opened up about why she thinks Flanagan’s projects end up being so special and beloved. “I think most of the people who get hired on a Flanagan project love their jobs. . . . What Mike gives everybody is permission to be as obsessed with what you love as you are,” she told Slash Film when discussing “Midnight Mass” in 2021.
Ahead, here’s everything to know about Flanagan and Siegel’s relationship and their many horror collaborations.
