    • Danielle: First of all, I do not do drugs. I stayed out of that because I was always working. But we were doing all that "young Hollywood" stuff-sneaking into clubs at age 15 and partying. There just weren't paparazzi then; it wasn't glamorized like it is now. I feel bad for these girls today; they can't even be adolescents and get into a little trouble. Also, 15 years ago, I didn't have any friends who were making 20 million dollars on a movie. Now, 20 million dollars to a 17-year-old…what are they going to do with it? There's no guidance.

    • (on playing a high school student in the remake of Halloween)
      Danielle: It was weird I think because I am 13 years older. Before Scout [Taylor-Compton] was cast she had a screen test and I came in and met Rob for the first time and met Scout. They asked if I would read some scenes with her and I said sure. I didn't know how old Scout was and I remember coming home that day and saying to my boyfriend "I feel really old… I need to be careful. I feel like I'm her older sister. I feel a lot older than her. I don't know how she is but I just feel a lot older than her." I said "I've got to kind of young it up a bit." Even my voice. I mean I'm 30 years old and she was 17. I'm playing her best friend so I thought I really just have to be young at heart and be free spirited and have fun with her. I just felt older. But it worked.

    • Danielle: I just want to be respected for whatever I choose to do. I think it's all about longevity; I'm not in this business to be a movie star. Who knows what it'll be in six months; it's always changing. As long as I can continue to do what I love doing and continue to have a life, that's what I want.

    • Danielle: I know it's a cliché, but I really have no regrets in life-all I regret is not doing the things I want to do.

    • Danielle: (About Halloween 4) It was my first movie, so I was more excited about that - just being an actress, never mind being in a horror movie. At that time, I wasn't even a horror movie fan. I did Halloween 4 and Halloween 5 back to back, and I decided that horror movies were all I wanted to do for the rest of my life. It was going to be my thing.

    Danielle Harris is one of my favorite actresses because she can really bring emotion and the feel of the movie to life. When she played Jamie Lloyd in "Halloween 4 and 5," she had to portray a character that was scared of her uncle, Michael Myers. She had to act the way she did in Halloween 5, which is really hard to do. That is what makes her so talented. When she starred in the movie, "Wish Upon A Star," she had to play the older sister of Alexia Wheaton, but in real life, she was the older one. She played Hayley Wheaton. This is one of my all time favorite movies and I'm glad that she was in it. I can't wait to see her in the new "Halloween" movie because she will be playing a whole new character from the original one she was in. She will be playing Annie Brackett, who is a babysitter. I can't wait to see her on the big screen again, and wish her all the luck in the world for a very successful career in the future. :) :)moreless

    This little girl should have her own show. I don't know what somebody would be thinking if they were to deny allowing her to get her own show. personally, I think that she should do some sort of variety show. That would be good. Just think of it, "The Danielle Harris show, tonight at 9."



    Anyways, I would love to see her in more roles, with all that she has done, I'm surprised that she hasn't been given a more major role. Just watch out for her, because I think she is just getting her talent warmed up for us.moreless
