the haunting of hill house

Netflix’s chilling new thriller “The Haunting of Hill House” may only be one season in, but that hasn’t kept it from taking the nation by storm. Filled with supernatural encounters as well as heart-wrenching moments of grief, the show has already been categorized as TV’s first great horror show and for good reasoning.

In addition to the great writing, directing, and producing that Mike Flanagan delivered, each actor in the series found a way to resonate with everyone at least once throughout their appearance. During those times when you were trying to follow the storyline or keep track of all of the hidden ghosts wandering about the mansion, it may have been easy to miss the fact that you’ve probably seen all of the characters from the show in other roles, too.

Here’s where you might recognize the cast of “Hill House” from.

Carla Gugino played Olivia Craine.

Carla Gugino‘s role as Olivia Crain may have haunted you in your sleep, but that wasn’t the first time you’d seen her on your TV screens.

The actress has been making a name for herself since the late ’80s where she made small appearances in shows like “ALF,” “Who’s the Boss?,” and “Good Morning, Miss Bliss” – the show that started “Saved by the Bell.”

Over the years, she’s been seen in “The Jimmy Show,” “Spy Kids 2: Island of Lost Dreams,” “Spy Kids 3: Game Over,” “Sin City,” “Night at the Museum,” “American Gangster,” “Entourage,” “Californication,” and “Gerald’s Game.”

Timothy Hutton played Hugh Crain.

Timothy Hutton‘s role as the father that the children loved to hate was incredible given the surrounding facts, but that should be expected considering his resume.

The actor, who has been seen in season five of “How to Get Away with Murder,” has also appeared in “American Crime,” “Leverage,” “Kidnapped,” “The Good Shepherd,” “French Kiss,” “The Killing Room,” “The Alphabet Killer,” and much more.

Henry Thomas played the young Hugh Crain.

The younger version of the Crain patriarch – Henry Thomas – did his best to keep the family together, but things got a little weird throughout the 10-episode thriller.

Though it may not have been easy to notice, Henry Thomas – who played the role – has actually been a star for a very long time.

Most noticeably, Thomas starred in the hit 1982 sci-fi film “E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial” as the character Elliott. He also starred in the film “Cloak & Dagger,” “Legends of the Fall,” “Fever,” “Gangs of New York,” “Ouija: Origin of Evil,” and “Gerald’s Game.”
