Christopher Nolan revealed that he cast his daughter Flora Nolan in a cameo role in his film Oppenheimer at the last minute. According to a new report, the 22-year-old plays a character in the film who has her face melted off.Oppenheimer features actor Cillian Murphy in a role based on American theoretical physicist and scientist J Robert Oppenheimer, who is known as the ‘father of the atomic bomb’
During an interview with The Telegraph, Christopher said, “We needed someone to do that small part of a somewhat experimental and spontaneous sequence. So it was wonderful to just have her sort of roll with it.”
The report stated that Flora plays a nameless woman, who gets the ‘flesh’ on her face ‘flayed’ off in a dream that Cillian Murphy’s titular character has.
Flora has previously played an extra in Christopher’s 2014 film Interstellar. She is currently a student at the New York University Tisch School of Arts, as per a recent Deadline report.
