The Haunting of Bly Manor star revealed as the voice of Peppa Pig
Did you recognise that voice?
The Haunting of Bly Manor is one of Netflix's most anticipated shows of the year.
It is the follow-up to 2018's The Haunting of Hill House, and while it features a new setting and characters, it does including some returning cast members like Carla Gugino and Oliver Jackson-Cohen.
However, there is one cast member who will be familiar to any parent watching the show - or at least their voice will.
Young actress Amelie Bea Smith, who plays Flora Wingrave in The Haunting of Bly Manor, is also the voice of Peppa Pig.
The spectacular revelation was made on the Netflix Philippines account.

Amelie Bea Smith started voicing Peppa Pig in 2020, taking over from Harley Bird. Several different young actors have actually voiced Peppa since the TV show began in 2004, as they age out of role and become to old to voice the cartoon pig.
The revelation has obviously left fans confused
