Pinhead is one of the icons of horror films. In the new “Hellraiser” film, however, the character is supposed to be played by a woman.
The US actress Jamie Clayton (43) has landed a new role. The 43-year-old takes on the role of the legendary film monster Pinhead in the reboot of the horror classic “Hellraiser”, as reported by “Variety”. This is the first time that the horror character has been embodied by a woman.

The shooting for the reboot has already been completed. In addition to Clayton, Odessa A’zion, Brandon Flynn, Goran Visnjic, Drew Starkey, Adam Faison, Aoife Hinds, Selina Lo and Hiam Abbass are on board. Clive Barker (69), the author and director of the original “Hellraiser – Das Tor zur Hölle” from 1987, works alongside Marc Toberoff, David S. Goyer (55) and Keith Levine as a producer. David Bruckner directs.
The exact plot or the start date are not yet known. The reboot runs exclusively on the streaming service Hulu in the USA. Where or whether it will be shown in Germany is still in the stars.
Doug Bradley (67) played the role of Pinhead in the “Hellraiser” series from 1987 in eight films. Stephan Smith Collins (50) took over in 2011, followed by Paul T. Taylor in 2018.
