The whole month of February we will be celebrating the incredible ‘Women Of Horror’. We will be shinning a spotlight on a different woman everyday that has made an impact on the world of horror.
Today, February 2, 2015, we honor an original ‘Scream Queen’ Jamie Lee Curtis.
Even though Jamie Lee Curtis made her first appearance in the TV show ‘The Hardy Boys/Nancy Drew Mysteries’ in 1977 her first outstanding role was in ‘Halloween’ in 1978. Curtis was cast as Laurie Strode, the younger sister of notorious slasher Michael Myers.
In 1980 Curtis stared as ‘Elizabeth Solley’ in ‘The Fog. That same year Curtis went on to play the role of Kim in ‘Prom Night’, but she always returned to ‘Halloween’.
Curtis returned as Laurie Strode in the 1981 ‘Halloween II’ and again in 1982 for ‘Halloween III’ and yet again in 1998 for ‘Halloween H2O’. Curtis’ last role as Laurie Strode came in 2002 in ‘Halloween: Resurrection’, proving that with out a doubt, she will forever be remembered as “The Queen Of Halloween”.
Jamie Lee Curtis has had many roles and a very successful career that still continues. In fact, Curtis is about to star in the new TV series ‘Scream Queens’ from the creators of ‘American Horror Story’.
We tip our hats to you Mrs. Jamie Lee Curtis.
