Forty-four years is a long while to repeatedly play a character and maintain fans’ love for that character with good acting. Only a few movie stars have excelled at this – one of them is Jamie Lee Curtis. Jamie Lee Curtis is the actress cast as Laurie Strode in the Halloween movies. And as the Halloween film franchise finally draws the curtain on the making of the movie with the last installment, Halloween Ends, which will hit the cinemas soon, Jamie was interviewed by PEOPLE about the upcoming movie and how she feels about the end of her 44 years stint playing Laurie Strode.
Jamie Lee Curtis has this to say about the end of her chapter as Laurie Strode: “Well, you know, endings are a bitch, and endings are very difficult to do in a very satisfying way.” The actress thinks Halloween movie fans will find it unbelievable that the end has finally come, just as she did while shooting the movie. The actress remarked that it was difficult to digest the fact that the end of Laurie Strode had come “after 44 years of portraying her.” Nevertheless, she said the journey “felt very satisfying.”
