Mind-Blowing Revelation: The Astonishing Connection Between Taissa and Vera Farmiga in the Conjuring Universe!

Hollywood has always been full of famous families. There’s the Deschanel sisters, the Mara siblings, the Hemsworth brothers, and many, many more. Then again, last names aren’t always a perfect indicator of whether or not one star is related to another. So if you’ve come across actresses Vera and Taissa Farmiga, you might wonder if they’re actually related or if they just happen to share a last name.

The answer is the former: they’re sisters! The Farmigas come from a large family of seven siblings altogether. Because Vera is one of the oldest and Taissa is the youngest, they’re a bit further apart in age than you might think of a “typical” sibling pair. There’s 21 years between the sisters (almost to the day): Vera was born on Aug. 6, 1973, while Taissa was born Aug. 17, 1994.

Age gap aside, the sisters have a lot in common. Both have had roles in horror/thriller TV series (Vera in “Bates Motel,” Taissa in “American Horror Story”), and both have also ventured beyond typical film and TV roles: Taissa has done voice work and appeared off-Broadway, while Vera has dipped into directing. The pair have even starred together in the same franchise, with Taissa appearing in 2023’s “The Nun 2” — a prequel to “The Conjuring,” which stars Vera as the famous paranormal investigator Lorraine Warren.

It turns out that Michael Chives, the director of “The Nun 2” and “The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It,” which starred Vera, would love to do more projects with the sisters in the future. “Basically, I just want to work with Farmigas for the rest of my career,” he told People on Sept. 6. They have a big family and I just want to see which other ones are actors and want to work with me on a movie.”

He also said that both Farmiga sisters are lovely to work with on set. “They’re great with their crew,” Chaves added. “There are so many people involved in making a movie, and having actors that are generous to the crew is so invaluable. Having actors that acknowledge the crew and work with the crew and are cheerleaders for the crew and give — you get what you give.”

At heart, Vera and Taissa’s sisterhood is honestly goals. Check out our gallery to see their best photos together over the years.
