Where Was Lifetime’s Flowers in The Attic: The Source Filmed?
According to St. Louis Today, Lifetime’s Flowers in The Attic: The SourceIt was shot in Romania. It was shot during the pandemic. Everyone had to keep their distance because of this. Jemima was happy about it.
They only had a short time to film the movie. Because she was not able to spend much time with her friends, she had plenty of time to prepare. “I’m not sure I would’ve been able to keep up with my lines if I had been able to.”
We were trying to achieve a lot in a short space of time and, it was weird because it was probably the first job I’ve ever done where I haven’t socialized with the rest of the cast.
Olivia ‘Pushed Down A Dark Path’
Jemima Roper, who has read the entire series of books to get the role, says that at the beginning there is nothing that suggests that Olivia will lock her grandkids up in the attic.
However, she warns: “Then, there’s a lot that happens to her. That keeps pushing her down this dark path.”
There will also be many Easter eggs in this series. Are you ready to watch Olivia’s origin story?
