Saturday Scream Queen: Aryana Engineer
This Saturday's Scream Queen is more a Scream Princess at this point. Aryana Engineer is an a Candadian child actress of Iranian/Scottish descent. She was born partially deaf and can use sign language as effectively as she speaks English.
Her skill with sign language led to her gaining her first film role at the age of six, appearing as a young deaf girl in the 2009 horror film "The Orphan". She most recently appeared in the just released "Resident Evil: Retribution", basically playing herself... as she might be if she was in a world where the T-Virus started turning people into murderous zombies.
In addition to her film roles, Engineer has appeared in television ads. She will hopefully continue to develop as an actress and in a decade or so, she will appear here as a full-fledged Scream Queen.
