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. She has reprised her role once again in HALLOWEEN II which premiered in theatres in August 28th 2009.
She is presently shooting the vampire drama, STAKELAND with Kelly McGilles. She will then lend her voice as the lead character of “Barbara” in the animated feature film, NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD. She recently wrapped the webseries, FEAR CLINIC, for FearNet and Lions Gate. She stars in the series along side Robert Englund and Kane Hodder. FEAR CLINIC premieres on Comcast On Demand, October 26, 2009.
On October 31, 2009 Danielle will be launching HorrorGal.com, an “all-things horror” website. The response among her already huge fanbase 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. 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 Disney feature, “WISH UPON A STAR”.
Danielle also has a thriving voice over career and is the voice of the segmented animated feature film, GOD KILLER. She plays the voice of “Half Pipe,” alongside Lance Henricksen and Bill Mosley. 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, Krav Maga, “The S-Factor” pole dancing, and spends time with her mom, sister, and her two dogs, Thor and Sally.
