One of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is part of iconic silver screen legend, Halloween. Kyle Richards, a Real Housewife OG, appeared in the 1978 classic film as young Lindsey. Her character’s parents go out that evening and one of Laurie Strode’s (Jamie Lee Curtis) friends is her babysitter. Lindsey ultimately ends up in Laurie’s care and finds herself running for her life from madman Michael Myers.
Richards was only 9 years old when she appeared in the groundbreaking horror film and was in the process of building a sweet acting portfolio. In addition to Halloween, Richards appeared in Escape to Witch Mountain, Little House on the Prairie and even had a guest role on Beverly Hills 90210. Richards’ sister Kim Richards, also on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills has an extensive acting portfolio, with many roles in the 1970s and 1980s.
The film features a babysitter who is being chased by psycho killer Michael Myers. Even though a number of horror films feature a babysitter in trouble, Richards ponders whether Halloween made babysitting a little scarier. “Do you think a movie like Halloween ruined the babysitting business,” Richards asks Jamie Lee Curtis, ET reports. “Making the movie I was never scared, [but] seeing myself in it was terrifying!”
Curtis seemed to have mothered Richards on set. Richards recalls a fond memory during an ET interview. “I always have that memory of me, on the last day of shooting, of you carrying me all the way back to my dressing room. I’ve never forgotten that,” she recalls. Curtis says, “I have beautiful memories of you.”
Although she pushed for Lindsey to make an appearance Richards didn’t make the new Halloween cut. “I really wanted to be so badly,” US Weekly reports. “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,”
She told ET, “I had my people call and they’re like, ‘There’s not a part for you.’ I’m like, ‘Well, I mean, hello, where did she go?’” However, Lindsey appears in Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers, but a different actress took the role.
