Scream VI star Samara Weaving mocks ‘Illuminati’ conspiracy as she shows off her rarely seen ankle tattoo on The Late Late Show with James Corden

She had a scene-stealing role as the first victim in box-office horror hit Scream VI.

And Samara Weaving was having plenty of fun on Thursday as she was interviewed alongside Josh Gad on The Late Late Show with James Corden.

The Australian actress, 31, quipped about having an ‘Illuminati’ tattoo as she showed off her rarely seen inking on her ankle.

But all jokes aside, she said the tattoo wasn’t actually a sign of the shadowy elite group at the centre of many conspiracy theories.

In reality, she said, it was a tribute to her love of the Harry Potter franchise.

She said she was a lifelong fan of the Wizarding World and was so excited when she was cast in the 2019 film Guns Akimbo alongside Daniel Radcliffe, who played the Boy Who Lived in the Harry Potter films based on JK Rowling’s bestselling books. 

Samara said she had to keep her tattoo, an icon from the Deathly Hallows films, on the ‘downlow’ during the shoot to avoid freaking out Daniel.

This proved tricky, however, because the two actors spent a lot of time together during their four weeks of stunt training.

During their action sequences, Samara wore ‘super long socks’ to cover up her tattoo, but found herself in an awkward situation when she forgot to wear them to set one day.

‘I was trying to be really cool, like, “Oh, hey, Dan,’ she said, but she was eventually rumbled when the 33-year-old Brit clocked her tatt.

‘Is that what I think it is?’ he asked her circumspectly.

‘No, it’s not,’ Samara replied, which prompted Daniel to ask: ‘Then what is it?’ 

The Babysitter star then joked, ‘I’m in the Illuminati!’ before immediately conceding it was a Harry Potter tattoo.

However, she reassured him: ‘It’s not about you, it’s about the books.’
