Sutton Stracke And Meg Tilly Almost Broke The Chucky Doll Behind The Scenes (On Accident!)
"The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" star Sutton Stracke holds that it's not her fault!
Chucky has taken his fair share of beatings over the years since he first graced the silver screen in 1988's "Child's Play," but it turns out he's not even safe behind the scenes of his own television series!
In the fourth episode of USA Network and SYFY's "Chucky" Season 2, "Death on Denial," everyone's friend 'til the end takes something of a backseat in order to focus on Tiffany Valentine, Glen, Glenda, and a cadre of Jennifer Tilly's Hollywood friends. However, behind the camera, the episode's guest stars had plenty of opportunity to interact with the real Chucky doll.
When USA Insider's Stephanie Gomulka spoke with series guest and "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" star Sutton Stracke, she detailed how fun it was to see Tilly, her IRL best friend, being a "leader" on set as well as interacting with the other guests: Gina Gershon, Joe Pantoliano, and Meg Tilly (Jennifer Tilly's sister). However, Stracke and Meg seemed to have maybe too much fun with the doll.
"We did get to see the Chucky dolls," Stracke confirmed. "Meg Tilly ... we played with the Chucky doll. We were swinging him and, this is a true story, Meg let go. It was her fault! And Chucky went flying over and landed on his face and I really did think we had broken Chucky. But thankfully he was fine. He actually can endure a lot of things to his face.
"He's got a lot of scars and stuff — he's not very attractive," she added.
Thankfully, Chucky's been through worse, and it'll take more than a few bumps on the head to keep that doll down. Chucky's taken down parents, babysitters, teachers, cats, and even WWE Superstar Liv Morgan — so he knows a thing or two about significant injuries, accidental or not. (Usually with Chucky, the injuries are very much not accidental. Kinda comes with the whole "serial killer" thing.)
Here's hoping Chucky's in a forgiving mood, though, if he ever runs into Stracke or Meg again. He's been known to hold a grudge.
New episodes of "Chucky" premiere Wednesday nights at 9/8c on USA Network and SYFY. You can catch up on past episodes on Peacock.
