Congratulations to James Wan, 42, who recently got married. The lucky person that managed to steal the heart of the prolific the Malaysian-born Australian director, is none other than actress Ingrid Bisu, who worked with the director in “The Conjuring” spinoff, “The Nun”.
Cheers and congratulations aside. We feel that not a lot of people really know much about the 32-year-old Romanian actress. So in order to enlighten those that are in the dark about her, here are 5 facts about the newly wedded actress.
1. She Co-Wrote The New Horror Movie “Malignant”
“Malignant” is the next movie to be directed by “The Conjuring” director, with many horror fans anticipating it’s release. But do you know that the movie will also be a first for the actress, who put pen to paper for a feature film for the first time.
The star’s previous venture into writing involved a web mini-series called “Super Yolo Show” and a talk show called “Cafeaua De Dimineata”, both of which targeted her native country of Romania. So it would be interesting to see what she can do for a wider audience and a different medium.
2. Starred In One Of Romania’s First Sit-Com
Bisu’s first major break came in 2003, when she, at the age of 16, did a photoshoot with a teenage magazine called “Cool Girl”. She then landed commercial role with Orange S.A. Mobile, that aired in Israel and Romania. All of these resulted in her getting the part of Flori, in Romania’s first sitcom “Casatorie de proba” (“Probation Marriage”) in 2004.

Before “The Nun”, the Romanian’s biggest commercial success was from the film “Toni Erdmann” where she played the character, Anca.
