kristy swanson kiernan shipka flowers in the attic gi Kristy Swanson tweets 'Flowers in the Attic' love to Kiernan Shipka

Kristy Swanson was one of those who tuned into Lifetime’s remake of “Flowers in the Attic” Saturday (Jan. 18). The actress played Cathy Dollanganger in a 1987 film based on V.C. Andrews’ book and was happy with how Kiernan Shipka did in the role.
“@kiernanshipka good job honey on the role of Cathy in #FlowersintheAttic proud of you,” she tweets. Swanson adds, “I am happy to watch the remake on @lifetimetv it brings back fond memories of the original film.”
Reaction to the Lifetime movie was mixed, with some saying it needed to stick closer to the novel. Still, the network is already at work on a sequel, “Petals on the Wind,” based on the second book in Andrews’ Dollanganger series. It will be set ten years after “Flowers in the Attic.”
