Janet Leigh is best known for her role as Marion Crane in the Hitchcock classic 'Psycho'.

She was definitely the original scream queen. One of the memorable moments of the horror film is the shower scene, where Leigh lets out a horrific scream as Norman Bates tears open the curtain.

Another iconic element in the film is her dress, which we didn't really know was blue, until now. According to Jamie, Hitchcock confirmed to her that the dress was, in fact, powder blue in color.

Jamie Lee is also a horror queen in her own right. The actress headlines one of the most successful horror franchises of our time.

In an interview with Vogue, she shared that no one really expected Halloween to be as big as it is now.

“Halloween was never meant to become a franchise until it became one. Nobody involved knew it would amount to anything worthwhile,” the actor said over a Zoom call.

“And here I am, 43 years later, still playing Laurie Strode.”
