Jamie Lee Curtis
Basically the gold standard of stars who turned horror careers into just plain thriving movie careers, Jamie Lee Curtis starred as Laurie Strode in the original 1978 Halloween and then reprised the role in many sequels, including the recent reboot trilogy. (She even made two small cameos in Halloween 3: The Season of the Witch, which departed dramatically from the Michael Myers storyline.)
Curtis also appeared in many other hits, including Trading Places, A Fish Called Wanda and True Lies, before winning an Oscar last year for Everything Everywhere All at Once.
But she hasn’t turned her back on horror movies: Last year she also appeared in Halloween Ends.
