New Damien Spared Devil's Son Talk
The young actor who plays devil child DAMIEN THORNE in the remake of horror classic The Omen was never told exactly who he was playing in the film over fears the realisation he was Satan's son would freak him out. Little Seamus Davey-Fitzpatrick was simply told he was playing Damien by director John Moore and castmates Liev Schreiber and Julia Stiles, who play his parents in the film. Stiles says, "They didn't get into telling him he would be playing the devil. They spared him that because he was too young to understand it. "But he was really obedient when John asked him for the Damien face."
