Olivia Cooke - Olivia Cooke heard 'ghost' on set

Olivia Cooke was convinced she heard a ghost while filming 'Ouija'.

The British actress admits she and her castmates were so nervous about the unexplained noises, they asked a set assistant to go and check an empty room.

She said: ''Just before Christmas we were in a bedroom filming and there was noise going on upstairs. We sent a PA to go up and ask whoever was up there, could you just hold the work? She went up and then came back down and told us there was no-one up there!''

As well as shooting 'Ouija', 'The Bates Motel' actress is currently promoting horror/thriller 'The Quiet Ones' - which also stared Sam Claflin and Jared Harris - and can be seen in sci-fi 'The Signal' later this year, but she insists she isn't only drawn to supernatural stories.

She said: ''I think I'm drawn to the characters more so I think I'm definitely moving away from horror. 'The Signal' was sci-fi so that was more of a branch out, but I love thriller, I love sci-fi and I'd love to explore that more but I think I'm just open to anything.''

And the actress admitted to finding filming 'The Quiet Ones' very different to her role as Emma in American series 'The Bates Motel.'

She told BANG Showbiz: ''There's a lot of me crying in it, so I was emotionally drained. With the stunts and when I was attacking people I had like bruises and cuts all over me and I knew I had worked hard that day.

''I didn't really prepare myself for the intense scary scenes, I kind of just threw myself into it. I just went in to it expecting nothing and tried to react off what the surroundings were. When you read a script it's always so different to what you actually do so I just went in open to everything.''

'The Quiet Ones' opens in cinemas on April 10th.
