In 2021 she will dress again in the role of Laurie Strode in the 12th film of the Halloween saga, the beautiful career of the actress
Going from horror to comedy with ease is just one of Jamie Lee Curtis' many talents. And if the actress’s incredible resume is not enough proof, then you could look at the awards she has won over the course of her glittering career.
After all, Jamie Lee Curtis is a daughter of art and the world of cinema has known him since childhood. She was born in Los Angeles on November 22, 1958 from two big hits of the seventh art: Tony Curtis and Janet Leigh. The debut came with a small part in an episode of Colombo, the detective series that aired from 1968 to 2003. But the consecration came very soon: in fact she was entrusted with a cult role for the horror genre, that of Laurie Strode who first starred as John Carpenter's direct in the film Halloween – Night of the Witches. The film was irate in 1978 on a low budget and became legendary. Jamie, then, was Laurie in six of the ten films of the Halloween film saga, in fact she will return to play her role in Halloween Kills (12th film in the series) whose release is scheduled for 2021 and is the sequel to Halloween of 2018.
Another distinctive trait of her talent as an actress emerged in the comedies, where she proved to be able to express herself very well by giving us masterful interpretations. Just think of films like John Landis' Armchair for Two and Charles Crichton's A Fish Named Wanda.
Then there are more action films like Kathryn Bigelow's Blue Steel, The Tailor of Panama with Pierce Brosnan and True Lies with Arnold Schwarzenegger directed by James Cameron.
The actress's filmography is really long and includes roles in Crazy Friday, Again You! and Cena con delitto, to name a few. There was also a small screen where she took part in TV films and series, including Scream Queens with Emma Roberts.
There are also many awards: 2 Golden Globes, 1 BAFTA and 2 Saturn Awards. In private life, Jamie Lee Curtis is very active in the social sphere. Instead on a sentimental level she has been married since 1984 to the actor, director and musician Christopher Guest, both of whom are barons (a title inherited from her husband's father in 1996). The couple have two children Annie and Thomas, both adopted.
