Tough and talented, Danielle Harris transitioned from child star to adult actress with verve, embracing her horror movie roots to the delight of fans. Born June 1, 1977 in Daytona Beach, FL, Danielle Andrea Harris broke into showbiz on "One Life to Live" (ABC, 1968-2012), but achieved cult superstardom as the imperiled Jamie Lloyd, the young daughter of the dead Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis) and niece of the franchise's villain in "Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers" (1988) and "Halloween 5" (1989). After a small role in "City Slickers" (1991), she played Christina Applegate's tomboy younger sister in "Don't Tell Mom the Babysitter's Dead" (1991) and recurred on "Roseanne" (ABC, 1988-1997) as next-door neighbor Molly. She appeared in "Free Willy" (1993) and "Urban Legend" (1998), but earned far greater fame as the voice of older sister Debbie on the enormously popular animated series "The Wild Thornberrys" (Nickelodeon, 1998-2004) and in the 2002 hit film. Harris was also a series regular on "That's Life" (CBS, 2000-02) and the animated series "Father of the Pride" (NBC, 2004). Her "Halloween" role remained her most beloved, however, leading Rob Zombie to honor Harris and her place in the franchise's mythology when he cast her in his reimagined "Halloween" (2007) and "Halloween II" (2009). Considered horror movie royalty and inducted into the Fangoria Horror Hall of Fame, the actress went on to star in a string of horror projects and was crowned by many media outlets as the industry's then reigning "scream queen."
