Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

[why she did so many horror films at first] Well, I was too young - 19 or 20 - to turn away work. And why should I, when the characters were good people? I didn't have to swear, I didn't have to wear tight jeans or bounce my tits! I played Intelligent women, usually the lead. See more »

Trivia:

She has played the same character (Laurie Strode) in films released in five different decades from the 1970s to the 2010s: Halloween (1978), Halloween II (1981), Halloween H20: 20 Years Later (1998), Halloween: Resurrection (2002) and Halloween (2018). See more »
