Deborah as Dahlia Gillespie in Silent Hill.

Previously, Deborah had a close friendship with Silent Hill director Christophe Gans, whom she considered a mentor. Gans felt Deborah was perfect for the role of embattled mother Dahlia Gillespie, who appears at two different ages in the film. When he first approached Deborah for the role, he told her not to slap him, as he was sure she would be angered at being asked to portray a ragged old woman. Instead, Deborah was delighted by the character and quickly accepted the role.
