It seems that everybody likes Jamie Lee Curtis. No matter what she's doing or what she's in, you just gotta love her. It has served her well!

Born to actors Tony Curtis and Janet Leigh, the couple divorced in 1962, when Jamie Lee was 4 years old. She was raised by her mother and her new husband Robert Brandt.
After high school in Los Angeles, Jamie Lee attended Choate Rosemary Hall in Connecticut, graduating in 1976. Returning to California, she attended her mother's alma mater, the University of the Pacific in Stockton. Having been bitten by the acting bug, she dropped out.

Jamie Lee got her first break playing a "Girl in Dressing Room" in an episode of Quincy M.E, starring Jack Klugman, aired over NBC in February 1977. Landing a series regular spot as Lt. Barbara Duran in 23 episodes of Operation Petticoat with John Astin aired over ABC from September 1977 to July 1979, didn't hurt, but in the meantime. . .

Producer Debra Hiill cast Jamie Lee because she liked the fact that her mom was Janet Leigh, famous for the thriller Psycho (released in June 1960). Hill tought it would be good for the picture to put her in the lead of Laurie Strode in Halloween with Donald Pleasence (released in October 1978). The film was a whopper hit, leading to more "Scream Queen" sort of roles, such as . . .

Playing Elizabeth Solley in The Fog with Adrienne Barbeau (released in February 1980), playing Kimberly Hammond in Prom Night with Leslie Niesen (released in July 1980), starring with Ben Johnson in Terror Train (released in October 1980), and starring with Stacy Keach in Road Games (released in February 1981), before starring in a follow-up to her great success, Halloween II with Donald Pleasance (released in October 1981).

Somehow, without doing any nudes scenes for the television movie Death of a Centerfold: The Dorothy Stratten Story with Bruce Weitz as Paul Snider, aired over NBC in November 1981, Curtis gratified millions of boys around the world by going topless in Trading Places with Eddie Murphy (released in June 1983).

Her trim figure was on display quite a bit in while co-starring with John Travolta in Perfect (released in June 1985). Changing gears some, Curtis played sports agent Lynn Taylor in Amazing Grace and Chuck with Gregory Peck (released in April 1987). She got to play a romantic role in Dominick and Eugene with Tom Hulce (released in March 1988).

One of her best films has her playing the title character in A Fish Called Wanda with John Cleese (which played the Chinese in July 1988), Hillarious film - you gotta check it out. She co-starring with Ron Silver for 56 episodes of in the sitcom Anything But Love with Richard Lewis aired over ABC from March 1989 to June 1992.

By now, Jamie Lee could headline in films. First up, the cop drama Blue Steel with Ron Silver (which played the Chinese in March 1990), then, True Lies with Arnold Schwarzenegger (which played the Chinese in July 1994). After these heights, you would think that Curtis would not choose to play Laurie once more, so they gave her a double role as Laurie Strode and Keri Tate in Halloween H20: 20 Years Later with Josh Hartnett (released in July 1998).

She played Kit Foster in Virus with William Baldwin (released in January 1999), then returned to the Halloween pay window with Halloween: Resurrection with Busta Rhymes (released in July 1, 2002).

Now came time for Jamie Lee to play some moms: Tess Coleman in Freaky Friday with Lindsey Lohan (released in August 2003), and mother Krank in Christmas with the Kranks with Tim Allen (released in November 2004). Curtis played Dean Cathy Munsch in 23 episodes of Scream Queens aired over the Fox Network from September 2015 to December 2016.

She played the decidedly weird Linda Drysdale in Knives Out (released in September 2019), and won the Best Supporting Actress Oscar for playing the frumpy, menacing Deirdre Beabeirdre in Everything Everywhere All at Once (which played the Chinese in April 2022).

Curtis, who has always rather enjoyed her "Scream Queen" reputation, has been coy about whether Halloween Ends (which played the Chinese in October 2022) will, in fact, be her final performance in the series. Time will tell.

Meanwhile, Curtis appears as a spirit in yet another Disney movie called Haunted Mansion (released in June 2023). She absolutely burns down in the "Fishes" episode of The Bear (aired over FX in June 2023).
