However, what most people don’t know is the actress had a second role in the film. Check out below what it is (and be prepared for spoilers).
Halloween is now in theaters and has reunited many of the original masterminds behind the series.
“The Shape” finally made his long-awaited return to the big screen. Along with him, came scream queen Jamie Lee Curtis, the shape himself Nick Castle, and mastermind John Carpenter.
The sequel follows a crew of filmmakers as they investigate the events of Halloween 1978. They enter the prison where Michael Myers is being held and taunt him with the famous mask. Myers escapes and seeks revenge on Strode.
Obviously, Curtis plays Strode. However, she also has a second “secret” role, a fact director David Gordon Green recently revealed during an interview with Collider.
If you haven’t seen the movie and don’t want any spoilers, we recommend you stop reading here. If youo already know what happens or are OK with finding out, go on.
Curtis second role is revealed during a moment in the film in which Michael Myers is invading houses and killing residents. At one point, we can hear a baby crying and we see the killer moving in that direction.
The sound we hear was made by Curtis.
“That’s Jamie Lee Curtis’ baby sound,” Green tells Collider when asked about the scene. “She’s making that sound of the baby.”
We’re not really sure if it makes the scene better or creepier, to be honest.
Jamie Lee Curtis’ biggest regret with Halloween
Curtis recently shared one of her biggest regrets with the franchise had something to do with another milestone film in the series, Halloween: H20, or Halloween: 20 Years Later.
Recalling the film, she shared that when the anniversary was looming near, she contacted the film’s original director, John Carpenter and its late producer Debra Hill, about doing an anniversary to celebrate the fact they’re still “doing the job.”
While the idea was good, it didn’t pan out exactly how Curtis envisioned.
With varying circumstances getting in the way of the trio getting together to pen a script and get the film back in the hands of the original players from the 1978 film, Curtis shared that she regretted not being more specific on how she wanted the production to go.
