So it is true, there are a ton of actors and actresses that got started in a major way in horror movies… Believe it or not, before George Clooney (Oceans 11) took on the role of, ‘Danny Ocean’… He had a small role in the classic 80s horror movie, Return To Horror High (1987). And even Renee Zellwegger (Empire Records) was running away from Leatherface in, Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Next Generation (1994), before she was falling in love with leading men in the, ‘Bridget Jones’ series!
But then there are those actors actresses, that went on to make a name for themselves first outside of the world of horror… But would go on to become horror movie legends, and I thought that you guys might enjoys these three horror movie actors and actresses that started off in something a little more tame!
3: Alyssa Milano (My Girlfriend’s Boyfriend).
Now Alyssa Milano has done a mix of some truly fun comedies, some great TV, some solid chick flicks… But she has also done a mix of some stuff that is a bit more off beat to… Movies like, Fear (1996), with Mark Wahlberg (Ted) & Reese Witherspoon (Election)!
But before doing movie like, Fear (1996), or Embrace Of The Vampire (1995) or even Poison Ivy 2 (1996)… She did such films like Commando (1985)!
2: Sarah Michelle Gellar (Scooby-Doo).
Sarah Michelle Gellar is pretty much a horror staple with the work that she did in Buffy The Vampire Slayer… But before that she became, ‘Buffy’ or died in Scream 2 (1998) and I Know What You Did Last Summer (1997)… She was doing stuff like, ‘Swans Crossing’!
1: Corey Feldman (The Lost Boys)…
Now we all know who Corey Feldman… I mean this guy is basically a horror movie legend! But before he cut his teeth fighting Jason Voorhees… He was a child star doing such classic shows like, Mork & Mindy… With Robin Williams (Jumanji) and Madame’s Place!
There are other actors and actresses that have done some pretty cool stuff, but these are a few of the actors/actresses that I think are pretty epic that really made a name for themselves outside of horror, before becoming horror legends!
