Who Is Chica In The Five Nights At Freddy's Movie?

Fans of the video game franchise "Five Nights At Freddy's" are eagerly awaiting the upcoming big screen adaptation, possibly with a twinge of anxiety over whether or not the filmmakers will capture the spirit of the games in the movie. That includes the cast, who will be in some instances portraying characters who have been a part of the virtual "Freddy's" world for almost a decade. That's the case with Chica, one of the main evil animatronics of the franchise, and the actress revealed to be portraying the killer singing duck will be making her screen debut in the role.

It's film and TV pro Jess Weiss, who according to IMDb is slated to play Chica in the "Five Nights At Freddy's" movie. And her IMDb page also reveals that "Five Nights At Freddy's" will likely be her first acting credit, with her other work in film and television being in behind-the-scenes production roles.

Jess Weiss will be making her screen debut in the movie

Jess Weiss has several credits to her name, but other than "Five Nights At Freddy's" and an upcoming Yorgos Lanthimos (director of "Dogtooth" and "The Killing of a Sacred Deer") production, none of them are for acting. Most of her credits are as a production assistant and other behind-the-scenes positions on projects like "65" and "Queen Sugar." She also has a few credits as a stunt performer.

How did someone with such limited experience as a screen performer manage to get the role of Chica in the "Five Nights At Freddy's" movie? That remains to be revealed, but ideally that will be clear once her performance in the movie is experienced by viewers. Hopefully for fans, her work in the film will live up to the multiple versions of Chica that have menaced "FNAF" players throughout the years.

The "Five Nights At Freddy's" movie is slated to hit theaters and the Peacock streaming platform on October 27.
