All About The NUN II Actress Katelyn Rose Downey 

Katelyn Rose Downey (age: 14, born February 15, 2009) is an Irish dancer and actress who first entered the spotlight when she secured the role of Violet in the movie “The Princess,” directed by Le-Van Kiet.

The film was released on Hulu on July 1, 2022, featuring prominent actors such as Joey King, Olga Kurylenko, Antoni Davidov, Veronica Ngo, and Alex Reid.

Before her foray into the world of cinema, Rose had participated in various dance competitions, achieving the remarkable feat of winning a gold medal at the world championship.

Katelyn Rose Downey Played Sophie

Katelyn Played Sophie in The Nun II

Katelyn achieved immense fame for her portrayal of Violet in “The Princess,” but her role as Sophie in “The Nun 2” truly catapulted her into the spotlight.

In “The Nun 2,” Katelyn’s character, Sophie, is the daughter of Kate, played by Anna Katherine Popplewell, renowned for her role in “The Chronicles of Narnia.” Kate is a dedicated teacher at an all-girls boarding school in France, the film’s backdrop, while Sophie is one of the students.

As the story unfolds, Sophie forges a deep connection with Frenchie (Jonas Bloquet), who holds a passionate infatuation with her mother, Kate. Both Kate and Sophie play pivotal roles in aiding Sister Irene (Taissa Farmiga) in her mission to confront the evil nun.

Their mission revolves around the search for St. Lucy’s eyes. However, when Valak takes control of Frenchie’s body, Kate and Irene are incapacitated, leaving Sophie as the young heroine of the tale.

She ascends the bell tower with St. Lucy’s eyes, causing them to radiate, further infuriating the supernatural entity. Consequently, Sophie becomes Valak’s primary target, leading to the collapse of the bell tower.

Sister Irene and Debra rush to assist the young girl, and through the power of prayer and the influence of St. Lucy’s eyes, Valak is temporarily defeated.

The movie concludes with Frenchie, Kate, and Sophie walking together as a family, though they bear the emotional scars from the harrowing events they endured.
