Scream Queen Danielle Harris is coming to Disturbia Haunted Attraction October 19 and 20! You've seen her in The original Halloween 4 & 5 as well as Rob Zombies Halloween films.
After a twenty-year hiatus starring as “Jamie Lloyd” in HALLOWEEN IV & V, and to the delight of horror fans everywhere, Danielle Harris returned to the HALLOWEEN franchise – this time starring as “Annie Bracket” in the Dimension Films, Rob Zombie-directed of the classic HALLOWEEN and HALLOWEEN 2 earning Danielle the Horror Icon “Scream Queen” title.
It has been quite a busy year for Danielle. Most recently, she stars as “Marybeth”, opposite horror greats Kane Hodder, and Tony Todd in HATCHET II, the much-anticipated sequel to HATCHET. The controversial unrated and uncut film opened nationwide in theatres October 2010 – and because of the enormous response in DVD and VOD sales, HATCHET 3 has been green lit and will start production fall 2011.
Her vampire drama, STAKELAND with Kelly McGillis, premiered at the prestigious 2010 Toronto Film Festival, winning the Midnight Madness Audience Choice Award. While filming the feature, Danielle was asked to direct one of a series of prequels introducing the characters and their back story which was released on the web and received accolades from critics and fans alike.
Danielle is no stranger to being behind the camera though. Danielle took a stab at directing Prank: Madison starring Jennifer Blanc and Dana Daurey. The film was one of a series of shorts in a horror anthology all directed by famous women in horror and premiered at the Scream Fest Film Festival in Los Angeles and will also be highlighted at the Viscera Film Festival in July 2011.
Danielle has also lent her voice as the lead character of “Barbara” in the Sony Pictures animated feature film, NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD, as well as the character of “Half Pipe” opposite Lance Henricksen and Bill Mosley, in the animated feature film, GODKILLER. She also starred in the web series, FEAR CLINIC, for FearNet and Lions Gate along side Robert Englund and Kane Hodder. FEAR CLINIC premiered on Comcast, and drew multi millions of viewers and is currently in talks about turning the series into a feature film franchise.
On July, 1st 2011 Danielle will be launching HorrorGal.com, an “all-things horror” website. The response among her already huge fan base has been overwhelming. The site promises to be the hip, innovative, and the go-to-spot for contemporary horror and action/suspense/thriller fans.
Danielle Harris is one of few actresses to have made a successful transition from child star to ingénue. While she is considered the most recognizable and in demand female star in the horror genre, her list of credits are extensive and diverse. She began working at the age of seven when she landed her first job on the hit series SPENCER FOR HIRE, which led to a contract role on the ABC daytime drama ONE LIFE TO LIVE.
She then came to Los Angeles for pilot season. Two days after arriving, instead of booking a pilot, she landed one of the lead roles in the feature film DON’T TELL MOM THE BABYSITTER’S DEAD. She never left. She went on to star in such films as FREE WILLY, CITY SLICKERS, MARKED FOR DEATH, THE LAST BOYSCOUT, DAYLIGHT, and URBAN LEGEND.
Harris’ television career has been equally successful. Some of the highlights include series regular roles on ROSEANNE and THAT’S LIFE, recurring roles on ER and BROOKLYN SOUTH, numerous Guest Star appearances, as well as the lead in MOW’s including
“DON’T TOUCH MY DAUGHTER,” “THE WOMAN WHO LOVED ELVIS,” and the very popular Disney feature, “WISH UPON A STAR”.
She was also the voice of “Sierra” on the NBC series FATHER OF THE PRIDE and is the voice of “Debbie Thornberry” on the Nickelodeon animated series, THE WILD THORNBERRYS. The huge success of the animated series prompted Paramount Pictures to turn the highly successful series in to two full-length feature films, “THE WILD THORNBERRIES MOVIE” and “THE RUGRATS GO WILD.” Both animated feature films were highly successful.
In her spare time, Danielle enjoys doing yoga, Pilates, “The S-Factor” pole dancing, and spends time with her mom, sister, and her two dogs, Thor and Sally.
