You're Right If You Guessed the Lady in the Lake in The Haunting of Bly Manor Is From Hill House

After playing all nine episodes of Netflix's latest horror drama The Haunting of Bly Manor, I needed to know who played the infamous but faceless lady in the lake who sneaks around the mansion waiting for her next unfortunate victim, the also known as Viola Willoughby. Lloyd.
Viola plays the actress and screenwriter Kate Siegel, best known for her work in horror films and TV series. Netflix's latest horror drama, The Haunting of Bly Manor, doesn't deviate from this pattern of creepy horror and thriller work. Based on the classic novel by Henry James, The Turn of the Screw, the series does not disappoint. It's full of drama, morbidity, symbolism, and some of the same cast members as its predecessor, The Haunting of Hill House. These include Victoria Pedretti, Oliver Jackson-Cohen, Henry Thomas, Carla Gugino and of course Siegel.
Siegel is tragic, terrifying and understandable in her portrayal of Viola, a spunky woman who dies in Bly Manor. After being betrayed by her own family, Viola continues to chase the grounds. The actress also played Theodora, the middle child in The Haunting of Hill House, Maddie in the horror film Hush, and Jenny in Ouija: Origin of Evil. She has also worked with her husband as voice actress on The NoSleep Podcast and Cowrote Hush, adding to her already impressive list of projects in the horror genre.

Unlike Siegel's leading role in The Haunting of Hill House, Viola only appears in the last two episodes of the first season. Viola is one of the late Bly Manor ladies and ahead of her time, a woman determined to defy the sexist gender roles imposed on her (she made a point of leaving out the line promising her husband of her wedding) to obey vows).
In addition to acting and scripting, Siegel is the mother of two children. She talked about breastfeeding her newborn while filming The Haunting of Hill House and wrote it off as a grounding technique. Judging by her performance as the spunky but restless Theo, Siegel's grounding technique did the trick.
