Two more familiar faces are returning to the “Halloween” franchise for the upcoming “Halloween Kills,” including one of the original 1978’s youngest co-stars.
Actress/producer Kyle Richards is confirmed to be reprising her role of Lindsay Wallace, one of the two kids Jamie Lee Curtis’ Laurie Strode was babysitting in the original 1978 “Halloween,” for the upcoming sequel to the 2018 revival and tenth film overall in the series.
Brian Andrews played the other kid, Tommy Doyle, in the original but isn’t returning here. Paul Rudd played a version of Doyle in the sixth film and Anthony Michael Hall will take on the part for ‘Kills’. Richards said last year she got in touch with the film team for the 2018 revival to request a return engagement:
“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.”
It didn’t happen for that, but with ‘Kills’ announced they’ve now found a way for her character to return. Richards, who was just eight when she starred in the original (and it wasn’t her first role), is the longest-tenured member of “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” and has been a recurring or regular actress on shows ranging from “ER” to “Little House on the Prairie” to “Down to Earth”.
That’s not all though as young Jibrail Nantambu, who played the sassy and survival-focused Julian whose babysitter is butchered by Myers in last year’s film, says his character will be back in the sequels. He tells Halloween Daily News that “I will be in the next movies” and adds that Julian “will not die”.
“Halloween Kills” opens October 16th 2020.
