Jamie Lee Curtis may be a movie star, but that doesn’t mean she doesn’t have time to connect with fans. During the Q&A portion of her recent panel at San Diego Comic-Con for the upcoming “Halloween” movie, audience member Jeffrey Scott recalled the moment he came face-to-face with a knife-wielding home intruder. He said that the actress’ portrayal of Laurie Strode in the “Halloween” franchise helped him through the encounter.
“I was scared out of my mind and out of nowhere this thought inside of me when, ‘Well, what would Jamie Lee Curtis do?” he said. “To make a long story short, I’m here today because of the way that you portrayed Laurie Strode. I’m a victor today instead of a victim.”
Scott started to get emotional during the story, which was Curtis’ cue to come down from the stage to console him and give him a hug. They spent a few minutes together, with Curtis even posing for a few photos with the fan. It made for a touching moment, especially since that kind of close interaction between celebrities and fans at conventions is pretty rare.
