Original 'Halloween' Star Kyle Richards Wanted Badly to Return for New 'Halloween' Sequel

We all know her as Lindsey Wallace in John Carpenter‘s 1978 horror classic Halloween, but did you know that Kyle Richards wanted to appear in David Gordon Green‘s upcoming Halloween sequel? The actress wanted a role so badly that she practically begged the producers at Blumhouse to be in it in any capacity.

In an interview conducted today with, Richards revealed to the site how she reached out to the producers of Halloween 2018:

I really wanted to be so badly. And I’ve never done this in my life … I literally reached out and said, ‘Can I be in it in any capacity? I’ll be an extra. I’ll do anything.’ But they didn’t think that it was going to fit in with the story or something.

Kyle Richards on being proud of her role in the original Halloween:

I’ve done so many movies and TV shows since I’m a baby. And that’s probably the number one thing next to Little House on the Prairie, or now the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, that people ask me about. So it’s just something that I feel really proud to have been a part of. It’s such an iconic film. And I have a lot of memories from that, which I don’t have from all the things I’ve done. For some reason, it really sticks out in my mind.

The film stars Jamie Lee Curtis, who returns as Laurie Strode, Nick Castle, who reprises his role as Michael Myers, stuntman and actor James Jude Courtney will also don the mask, Judy Greer plays Karen, the daughter of Laurie, Andi Matichak plays Allyson, the daughter of Greer and the granddaughter of Laurie Strode, Virginia Ginny Gardner plays Vicky, Miles Robbins plays Dave, Dylan Arnold plays Cameron, and Drew Scheid plays Oscar.

Synopsis: “Laurie Strode comes to her final confrontation with Michael Myers, the masked figure who has haunted her since she narrowly escaped his killing spree on Halloween night four decades ago.

John Carpenter executive produced the film with Malek Akkad for Trancas and horror specialist Jason Blum of Blumhouse. Gordon Green and Danny McBride also executive produced under their Rough House Pictures banner. Special FX specialist Christopher Nelson created the new Michael Myers mask.
