Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers — 10 Things You Didn’t Know

5. Danielle Harris wasn’t scared at all on set

For many child actors, it can be a harrowing experience working on a horror film. The sets are dark, the killer is creepy, and it could be weird for some kids to see so much gore, even if it’s all pretend. That wasn’t the case for Danielle Harris, who really enjoyed her time spent working on the movie. And although the crew did everything possible to make Harris feel safer (George P. Wilbur was constantly showing her his face underneath the mask between takes), many child actors would be freaked out to be doused in fake blood. For her part, however, Harris was having the time of her life.

In an interview with us here at 1428 Elm, Harris revealed she had a total blast while on the set. For the ten year old actress, she didn’t realize at the time the scenes she was filming were so freaky. Even for the iconic scissors scene at the end, Harris didn’t pause to realize how creepy it really was until thinking about it years later.
