News Nick Castle “The Shape” Talks New ‘Halloween’ Film, Putting on the Mask Again, and More Published 2 years ago on March 13, 2018 By Nick Bond Share Tweet At last month’s Mad Monster Party event in Charlotte, North Carolina, the legendary Nick Castle, who returns to play Michael Myers for a second time in the new Halloween film, packed his bags to take part in a very special Q&A for the fans. Castle talked quite a bit about his return to the Halloween franchise after 40 years, which was captured by the folks over at Halloween Daily News. On returning to Halloween 40 years later: “To be back in this franchise that I never thought I’d actually do any more work, because I never really considered myself an actor, and if you’d ever seen me try to act without a mask on, you would agree, so to go back and relive some of this is quite fun. To see Jamie Lee Curtis again, in uniform, so to speak, was fun. This new group of filmmakers that’s working on it, I think everyone is going to be pleasantly surprised – I mean not necessarily surprised, because they’re very talented to begin with. I think they honor the tradition of the original movie. I have high hopes for it, and I think everyone who is a fan, of the original especially, should look forward to it.” On putting the mask on again: “It was pretty crazy. It was. Not so much when I did it in the makeup trailer, but when I put it on for a shot, the first shot that I was in, I went, ‘Oh my God, I’m doing this.’ (laughs) It was really pretty fun. You know, I’m 70 years old now. (laughs) I’m happily retired, so doing it was fun. But I quickly realized how much the fans really enjoyed the idea of having me back to be part of this in some way or another. So that was really nice to hear. I really appreciated what I heard from social media and stuff like that, and then also noticing how the press picked up on that when it was announced. I thought that was kind of cool that people remember my work I did on that. And I get a lot of love from everybody here (at Mad Monster Party), and I return it because I appreciate it.” To read the full Q and A with Nick Castle from this year’s Mad Monster Party, head on over to Halloween Daily News.
