Lily Collins has totally been prepared to play the girlfriend of Ted Bundy. She believed she was receiving help from the beyond. Alongside Zac Efron as Ted Bundy, Collins portrays Elizabeth Kloepfer. She is Bundy’s long-time girlfriend who struggled with the idea that her lover could be a killer.
It premiered on Friday, May 3, and it may not be the true crime-based movie audiences are expecting. While getting ready for a complicated role, Collins found herself waking up every night at 3:05 a.m.
she said “I started being woken up by flashes of images, like the aftermath of a struggle,” Collins said in an interview.
Moreover, she added, “I discovered that 3 a.m. is the time when the veil between the realms is the thinnest and one can be visited.”
Collins told that she believed Bundy’s victims may have been trying to get in touch with her. This was a positive sign she felt while shooting. She needed the love and support that she received. It helped her focus more.
“I didn’t feel scared, I felt supported. I felt like people were saying, ‘We’re here listening. We’re here to support. Thank you for telling the story.’”
Collins even spent time with the real Kloepfer. The two looked through photo albums of the couple’s time together, from boating trips to birthday parties. And Collins even read aloud letters Bundy had written to Kloepfer. She also met Kloepfer’s daughter, whom Bundy cared for as a stepfather.
In last, Bundy is thought to have murdered at least 30 women in his criminal history in the 1970s. During his killing spree, Bundy dated Kloepfer for six years. Reports say fans might find it’s not really Ted’s movie; it’s Elizabeth’s movie. She turned him into the police in 1974.
