In 2015, twins Lisa and Louise Burns, who sent shivers down viewers’ spines in their performance as the Grady daughters, spoke about their experience working on the classic movie. The pair say Jack Nicholson took naps on the floor between scenes to stay in character, often talked about missing his daughter Jennifer from his first marriage to Sandra Knight, and appeared to be a more devoted family man than his public image ever let on.
“Oh my God, we loved it,” Louise and Lisa Burns reminisce about their once in a lifetime opportunity working with Kubrick. “Everyday felt like we’d been invited to a very exclusive party and we were the youngest, luckiest people to be there.”
