10-Year-Old Girl Who Acted As Squid Game Doll Forbidden From Watching Netflix Show
A South Korean actress who voiced the chilling Squid Game Red Light, Green Light doll has revealed she’s not allowed to watch the Netflix series because she’s too young.
Reagan To, who acted as the giant doll during the popular Red Light, Green Light game, is only 10.
As a result, she is forbidden by her mother from watching most of the ultra-violent show, which has captivated viewers across the globe.
In an interview with Larry Emdur and Kylie Gillies on Channel 7’s The Morning Show, To said her parents only discovered her voice work when they watched the show for the first time.
‘I have not watched any of it,’ To told The Morning Show on Tuesday. ‘My mum has shown me just a little bit but right before the violent part she stopped it.’
She added: ‘Even my brother – he’s 14 – my parents don’t even allow him to watch it.’
It all started when my dad asked my mum to watch Squid Game since it was the most popular show in the world at the time. They had no idea it was my voice, and when it got to that scene they were like, ‘wait second, that’s Reagan, that’s her voice’.
My mum searched it up on social media and she found that people were using my voice on YouTube videos and it was even featured on Saturday Night Live for a skit.
I have not watched any of it. My mum has shown me just a little bit but right before the violent part she just stopped it. And even my brother, he’s fourteen and my parents don’t even allow him to watch it.
Squid Game has been given the recommended 15 age rating for ‘sexual violence references, injury detail, crude humour, sex, suicide, sexual images, violence.’
Given the amount of people who die in the first episode alone, this is far from surprising.
The scene in question, in which Reagan voices a giant doll overseeing a deadly children’s game, features the show’s highest body count as losing contestants are mercilessly gunned down.
In October, some schools warned parents not to let their children watch the drama due to its gruesome content.
Squid Game season two was confirmed earlier this month, with creator Hwang Dong-hyuk announcing the news.
Speaking to the Associated Press, he said;
So there’s been so much pressure, so much demand and so much love for a second season. So I almost feel like you leave us no choice! But I will say, there will indeed be a second season.
The screenwriter added that the ideas ‘in my head right now’, as he is in the ‘planning process’ at the moment.
But I do think it’s too early to say when and how it’s going to happen. So I will promise you this… Gi-hun will come back, he’ll do something for the world.
