One of Kyle Richards' favorite moments as a child actor was when she played Lindsey Wallace, a little girl babysat by Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis), in the 1978 horror classic Halloween. A remake of the film starring Curtis came out in September 2018, but The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills mom didn't appear in the movie.
But Halloween 2018 performed so well that a sequel called Halloween Kills was ordered and will begin production later this year — and this time, Lindsey Wallace is back!
"It’s true," Kyle confirmed on Instagram. "I am beyond honored and thrilled to be a part of #halloweenkills and reprising my role of Lindsey Wallace. Thank you #davidgordongreen @blumhouse @universalpictures @curtisleejamie #Malekakkad @lone_wolf_mcbride. I have always been so proud to have been a part of Halloween. Bringing Lindsey back is very exciting!"
If Kyle seems particularly over the moon about bringing Lindsey Wallace back to life, that's because it's something she has admittedly been gunning for since the 2018 Halloween remake was announced.
“I really wanted to be so badly," she told Us Weekly at the time. "And I’ve never done this in my life. . . I literally reached out and said, ‘Can I be in it in any capacity? I’ll be an extra. I’ll do anything.’ But they didn’t think that it was going to fit in with the story or something.
“That’s probably the number one thing next to Little House on the Prairie, or now The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, that people ask me about," she explained to the publication. "So it’s just something that I feel really proud to have been a part of. It’s such an iconic film. And I have a lot of memories from that, which I don’t have from all the things I’ve done. For some reason, it really sticks out in my mind.”
