The 61-year-old actress shared a heartwarming tale about how a fan named Anthony Woodle was able to see a private screening of ‘Halloween Kills’ – which has had its cinematic release delayed to October 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic – and she also offered to share secrets of the set with him.
Jamie who plays protagonist Laurie Strode in the iconic horror series – explained: “They said that a young man that works (at the Terrace Theatre), Anthony Woodle, was diagnosed with cancer and didn’t have long to live.
“So David (Gordon Green, ‘Halloween’ producer) showed him a movie that no one in the world has seen. He showed Anthony and his fiancée, Emily, the chance to see the ‘Halloween’ movie which I thought was beautiful gesture and I simply followed it up by calling Anthony and started having a conversation to say, I could tell him any secrets.”
Jamie also revealed that she had offered to marry Anthony and Emily before he passed away through her role as an officiant.
She told The Talk: “And it turned out that I also offered to marry him, because I am an officiant and it turned out that his wedding wasn’t going to be able to happen because he was so near death.
“It was a privilege. He was the greatest ‘Halloween’ fan in the world, and I know a lot of them.”
Jamie recently hailed ‘Halloween Kills’ as a “masterpiece” and hinted that it will be “really really intense”.
She said: “The power, of the rage of voices, big groups of people coming together enraged at the set of circumstances, is what the movie is about. It’s about a mob, which infects an entire community. But when you see it, it’s a seething group of people moving through the story as a big angry group. It’s really, really, really intense. It’s a masterpiece.”
