Silent Hill


Laurie as Cybil Bennett in Silent Hill.

Laurie was hired by director Christophe Gans to star in Silent Hill in 2005. According to Gans, he felt her hips looked manly, and so thought she would make a great police officer character.[1] Initially, Laurie cried when she learned she would have to chop off most of her blonde hair, but Gans comforted her by telling her she was his "White Wolf" character.

Laurie most enjoyed filming a scene in which Cybil fights a group of fanatical cultists, even though she had to go to the hospital due to a hand injury sustained during filming.


  1. "Her slim hips give her a way of moving that's very "Western", very masculine. I thought she’d be fantastic as a policewoman, in the tight leather trousers and so on." Gans, Christophe (2009). Silent Hill: Metropolitan Édition Haute Définition [Blu-Ray; Disc 1/2].
