‘Haunting Of Bly Manor’ Fans Realise 'Creepy' Girl Is Actually Voice of Peppa Pig
Taking to Twitter after apparently Googling nine-year-old Amelie Bea Smith, one user shared her findings alongside the tweet: "the girl who played flora voiced peppa pig? Excuse me I can't." The page in question clearly states: "Amelie Bea Smith, best known for voicing Peppa Pig, is the star of Netflix series The Haunting of Bly Manor." Mind blown.
Oh, and not just that, she also appeared as Daisy in Eastenders. Quite the little talent!

"No wonder Flora sounds so familiar she's literally Peppa Pig. It's perfectly splendid!!" said another, while a third tweeted: "Not me just realising now that Flora in Bly Manor is the voice of Peppa Pig."
"I can't stop laughing at the fact the little girl who plays flora in bly manor voices peppa pig...imagine peppa pig just like "perfectly splendid" tweeted a fourth.

Me: Why does Flora's voice in Bly Manor seem so eerily familiar?
Me: OH MY GOD SHE'S PEPPA PIG

Amelie took over the role of Peppa Pig from 18-year-old actress Harley Bird, who was the third actress to voice Peppa, after Lily Snowden-Fine, who starred in its first series in 2004, and Cecily Bloom, who joined for the second run in 2006. The show has been a worldwide smash for its makers Entertainment One, which was brought by Hasbro for £2.8 billion on New Year's Eve.
Meanwhile, Flora has been riling up some Haunting Of Bly Manor fans by overusing the phrase "perfectly splendid", as she seems to use the phrase in pretty much every other sentence.
Based on Henry James's 1898 novella, 'The Turn of the Screw', this offering is set in the 1980s and also stars Henry Thomas (The Haunting of Hill House) as the children's uncle, while newcomers Amelie Bea Smith and Benjamin Evan Ainsworth play Flora and Miles, Henry's niece and nephew.
Haunting Of Bly Manor is available to binge on Netflix now.
