WWE superstar Liv Morgan finally got a chance to be a part of the Chucky universe in the latest episode of Chucky Season 2, and now she’s sharing new behind-the-scenes footage of her performance on the show. The video, which you can find below, shows Morgan embracing the Chucky doll and teaming up with puppeteer Tony Gardner on set. We also see them go through Morgan’s death scene and how it will play out, and then we see the team try on a prosthetic for the stab scene. Morgan then begins to run her scene with creator and executive producer Don Mancini before donning the prosthesis and the scene begins.
It’s always interesting to see how these scenes play out with the puppeteers in green suits and the work that goes into the prosthetics, and later in the video you can also see how the fake blood is processed and how they navigate Chucky throughout the sequence . You can watch the full video in the post below.

Morgan spoke about the experience in a new interview with USA Insider. “I feel like I’ve become a horror fanatic as I got older, but I’ve been a fan of the ‘Child’s Play’ franchise all my life. I’ve seen every movie and season 1 of ‘Chucky’ was something I Just loved it. My fandom for ‘Chucky’ goes very, very deep — I have about three Chucky dolls in my house,” Morgan said.
“So I watched season 1, and I was so excited about it — I loved it so much, loved the writing. I saw Chucky in modern society doing the same Chucky things that I did growing up,” Morgan said. “So I just went to WWE and I thought, ‘Do you think there’s an opportunity for me in any capacity? Because I’d love to be involved in any way, in any form.’ And so they reached out, and I was even put in touch with Don Mancini, the creator of the show – he’s been so nice to me, we jumped on a Zoom and he was able to write me into the script It was almost a utopia coming true. It started with a question that grew into something incredible.”
Morgan had wanted to be part of the series for a long time, and on a scale of 1 to 10, it went way beyond the 10-point scale. “It was about 100. I’m not just saying that, it really was. They treated me like family, you know? They made me feel so comfortable,” Morgan said. “It felt very familiar to be in that setting; it’s like I was working in WWE. I didn’t realize how much WWE prepares you for something like this – the cameras, the backstages – when I was filming ‘Chucky’ I felt like I was filming backstage for WWE, it felt the same, which was very reassuring.”
Chucky airs new episodes every Wednesday at 9 p.m. EST on USA Network and SYFY, and Morgan can be seen on Friday during SmackDown on FOX at 8 p.m. EST.
