Colin Farrell is ready to sink his teeth into Sofia Vergara’s younger sister!
The younger sibling of the Modern Family star, Sandra Vergara, has been tapped to star opposite Farrell in Fright Night, a remake of the 1985 teen horror movie about a teenager who finds out that his neighbor is a vampire.
We know what you’re thinking: Sofia Vergara has a sister who is also an actress? The answer is yes. But up until now, Sandra’s only acting credits have come from work she’s done as an extra on FX’s Nip/Tuck and CBS’ CSI: Miami.
Fright Night marks her first high profile role in a studio movie. Sandra will play Ginger, the girlfriend to a magician who is recruited to fight off the vampire, played by Farrell.
Fright Night is currently filming in New Mexico and is being directed by Craig Gillespie (Lars and the Real Girl). The movie will be released next fall.
