Plus, co-star Cameron Seely talks about being directed via Skype.

Ahead of the release of Illumination’s The Grinch, Rotten Tomatoes borrowed Fandango kid correspondent Ariana Raetz for the day and sat down with stars Benedict Cumberbatch – who plays the mean one himself – and Cameron Seely, who voices Cindy-Lou Who. Cumberbatch reveals the first time he came across the infamous character, while Seely recalls her time in the recording booth (a lot of the time she was directed via Skype). Both actors also reveal how this 2018 take on the story differs from the original book, the beloved Boris Karloff cartoon, and Ron Howard’s 2000 film.

The Grinch is currently in theaters everywhere.
