Jamie Lee Curtis is a bona fide queen of horror and an indispensable part of the Halloween franchise.
In the early days, however, she was convinced she wouldn't last through the first movie without being fired.
The fear came when director John Carpenter called Curtis on the phone after her first day of filming.
?I remember the phone rang in my apartment and my roommate said, ?Jamie, John Carpenter?s on the phone,'?
He wanted to tell her how great she was, but ComicBook.com reports her first reaction was fear.
Curtis would go on to play the role of Laurie Strode three more times in Halloween films.
