Why Mrs. Miller From The Seventh Day Looks So Familiar

Demonic possession has remained at the forefront of the horror genre since "The Exorcist" sent shivers down the spine of the American public. From "The Conjuring" series to "The Taking of Deborah Logan," there are numerous films out there that will make you believe there are evil forces out there, even if you don't believe in demons and things that go bump in the night. If you're in the mood for watching something to watch in the middle of the night when you're all by yourself, then Netflix has the perfect option with "The Seventh Day."

The horror flick follows Father Daniel Garcia (Vadhir Derbez), an inexperienced priest, who teams up with a more experienced man of the cloth, Father Peter Costello (Guy Pearce), to perform an exorcism on a young boy. The mother of this child, Mrs. Miller (Hannah Alline Culwell), assists them in this process. 

The actress has several close-ups in the movie, so it's only natural if you feel like you've seen her before. She has an extensive resume from drama series to superhero shows, so no matter what you enjoy, you've likely seen her in the past.

She played Rose during the strip club scene on Ozark

"Ozark" is Netflix's answer to "Breaking Bad." It follows a dysfunctional but otherwise good family who finds themselves on the wrong side of some dangerous folks. To better help pay off their debts, they move to the Ozarks, where they run into Ruth (Julia Garner), who's affiliated with running one of the local crime families. She manages the Lickety Splitz strip club in her spare time, where she's not afraid of getting her hands dirty. In Season 2's "Reparations," she pays a visit to the establishment and has a brief conversation with one of the servers, Rose (Hannah Alline Culwell). Rose tells her about some improper activities going on in the back before promptly leaving. It's a brief role, but it follows the tradition of high-profile TV roles Culwell has gained over the years. 

Before showing up on "Ozark," Culwell landed roles in "24: Legacy" and "The Resident." All of that hard work was ultimately child's play to what would become arguably her most prominent role to date.

She entered the superhero realm on Doom Patrol

"Doom Patrol," now available to watch on HBO Max, isn't your average superhero team-up show. The series follows a group of superheroes who all suffered trauma in their lives, and through their powers, they're generally rejected by polite society. Nowhere is this more evident than with Kay Challis, who developed 64 separate personalities, each one with its own powers. One of these identities is Pretty Polly, played by Hannah Alline Culwell. She's rarely come to the surface, but she's manifested whenever Kay has looked inward to battle her demons. 

The show establishes that Pretty Polly was one of the first personalities Kay developed after her abuse. She's bossy and prone to getting upset over minor inconveniences. She appeared periodically throughout Season 2, and a cameo in "Doom Patrol" Season 3 wouldn't be out of the question. It's even possible that next season could result in audiences finally seeing what Pretty Polly's power is. 

She had a small role in the controversial "The Hunt"

Before "The Hunt" even came out in theaters, it garnered a ton of negative attention, particularly from conservative media members. The film followed a group of individuals from red states placed in a pasture together and subsequently hunted by members of the "liberal" elite. Universal originally slated the movie to come out in 2019, but due to the controversy, the studio pushed the film back into 2020, where the marketing campaign utilized the debate surrounding it to great effect. 

It came out in theaters right before massive closures took place due to the COVID-19 pandemic. As such, not many people likely saw Hannah Alline Culwell as the flight attendant who ensures the richest of the rich are comfortable on their journey to take part in the deadliest game. Culwell's kept the horror train moving, as she's followed "The Hunt" up with "The Seventh Day," which is a lot easier to watch now that it's available on Netflix.
