Nun Theory: Irene & Lorraine Warren Are The Same Person


Perhaps the biggest mystery of The Nun is the possible connection between Sister Irene and Lorraine Warren, who is played by Vera Farmiga. Directed by Corin Hardy, The Nun is a spinoff from the Conjuring Universe, and stars Vera's younger sister Taissa Farmiga as Sister Irene, a nun who is recruited to investigate a mysterious death at a remote convent in Romania. The Nun and The Conjuring are set about 20 years apart, and there's a 21-year age gap between the sisters, who bear a strong family resemblance.
