The actress has played Laurie Strode in seven of the 11 Halloween films, including the latest installment, set to hit theaters on Oct. 19. She first appeared in the original 1978 film.
After congratulating Curtis on the new film, host James Corden asked how much the role changed her life. “Every single thing that I have in my professional life came from that movie, and I am flabbergasted that, at almost kissing 60, I get to sit here and talk about a movie that I made 40 years ago,” she said about the original film. “It is absolutely incredible. It’s just magic.”
“Every second has been magic. Even the hard seconds,” she said. “Life is hard sometimes for people, and in horror movies it’s hard for people — like, really hard for people.” The actress began to laugh at her comment. “Like the worst hard,” she continued.
She concluded the segment by stating that she is proud to be known for the film. “I must tell you, the fans of this genre have given me my creative life,” she said. “I’ve had opportunities to do other stuff, but far and away, when I’m dead and gone, it will be ‘Halloween Actress Dies,’ and I will be proud that that is in the paper.”
