The 30-year-old took to Instagram this week to share a video of herself in bed with her boyfriend, actor Scoot McNairy, kissing him on the forehead.

Using a filter, Sosie's face then transformed in slow-motioned as she smiled directly at the camera, something that made many of her followers feel uneasy about. In the comments, one wrote: "Thanks, I was going to bed, now that's not going to happen," while another wrote: "This is terrifying!" A third added: "This really scared me."

Afterwards, a patient alarms her with a tale of seeing something unexplainable - an entity smiling at her. "I need to find an explanation for what happened," she says after this patient ends up dead.

Rose goes on to discover the existence of 19 murder cases all linked by the same creepy smile.

The Footloose actor suffered a very public breakdown during a slump in his own career and he didn't want his children to suffer that. Kevin told the Telegraph in 2013: "You're only as happy as your least happy child. We were only thinking about the struggle.

Kyra is in agreement and said in a previous interview: "Honestly, I really just want them to be happy. It is difficult being in this business, knowing how hard it is even when you're successful. The hurt, the rejection, the insecurity of thinking you're never going to work again... I don't want that for my kids."
