Sandy Johnson is best known to us Halloween fans as the original Judith Myers, portraying the iconic opening kill of the horror film. But Sandy herself quickly retired from show business and, for years, went unaware of what a fanbase the films had developed, or even that people had been trying to track her down for convention appearances.
In 2018, Dread Central was the first publication in nearly forty years to interview her, and it came at just the right time for the then-upcoming release of the 2018 revival. More recently, the official Halloween site posted their own exclusive interview with her.
Both interviews are fascinating reads, and I’ve linked both below for those who haven’t seen either of them. Both links will open in a new tab.
