Sydney Sweeney was determined to "push the boundaries" in 'Immaculate'.

The 26-year-old star leads the cast of the new psychological horror movie as Cecilia and had no issues with taking risks in the film's harrowing closing scenes.

Sydney told Variety: "I love finding places that I didn't know I could unlock – pushing the boundaries and the limits of what people expect to see from me.

"I wish that I had a formulaic answer for how I did it. But whenever a director calls 'action', it's just like a switch. And I allow all of Sydney's thoughts and feelings and emotions to disappear. And I am now whatever character I'm playing – I'm Cecilia at the moment.

"I don't like to rehearse; I don't plan what is going to happen. What you saw (in the film's final moments) was the first take."

The 'Madame Web' actress had always wanted to star in a horror film and embraced the "emotional trauma" that her character goes through in the picture.

Sydney said: "I always want to do something new. I don't want to do the same thing over and over again. It's a lot of the draw, character discovery – I love Cecilia's journey, and I loved the emotional trauma that she goes through.

"And being in the horror genre is fun, because in that genre, there's no limitations or boundaries. I always find it so funny when people pick apart a horror film's rules, or its storytelling. I'm like, 'It's a horror film. You're just having fun.' It's not a movie for the Oscars; you know that going into it.

"We want to create something good, but it's fun having characters that can go to such extreme, absurd places, and people don't question it."
