‘Ted Lasso’ Star Grew up in the Original Michael Myers House From ‘Halloween’

‘Ted Lasso’ Star Grew up in the Original Michael Myers House From ‘Halloween’

Ted Lasso alum Juno Temple recently revealed that she grew up in Michael Myers’s house from the original Halloween film. During her appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Tuesday, Temple shared details about her childhood. This includes the time she spent growing up in Los Angeles.

“So my parents were living out here and I was born actually in the U.K. Then I came back here until I was about 5,” Temple told Kimmel. “And I actually grew up in, this is an interesting place to grow up, my parents bought a house without realizing until Halloween came around and there was a tour bus that it was the original Michael Myers house from the Halloween movie!”

Amidst the laughter of the audience, Temple herself joined in. She giggled and nodded in agreement, saying, “Oh yeah!”

When host Jimmy Kimmel inquired whether she had any comprehension of the significance at that moment, she simply shook her head and replied, “I was 5.” This prompted Kimmel to quip about the obligation of realtors to disclose any instances of homicide in a house.

Temple then remembered an interesting detail from Halloween when the tour bus passed their house. “Apparently, there was a moment where I was outside on a swing, probably playing with Barbies and fairies. I have naturally very curly hair and the tour bus was like, ‘Oh my God it’s Shirley Temple!’ and I turned around, and was like, ‘No! I’m Juno Temple!’” The Dark Knight Rises star recalled.

The iconic house featured as the residence of the masked serial killer in the movie is situated on Mission Street in South Pasadena, California. In the film’s opening sequence, a young Michael Myers (played by Will Sandin) commits the heinous act of murdering his older sister, Judith (portrayed by Sandy Johnson), in an upstairs bedroom of the property.

Released in 1978, Halloween featured Nick Castle as Michael Myers and Jamie Lee Curtis as high school student Laurie Strode. Curtis reprised the role five more times over the years.

The original film inspired several sequels during the 80s and 90s. The 2000s saw director Rob Zombie reboot the series with two installments. However, the franchise went without another film for nearly a decade after Zombie’s 2009 Halloween II. This was followed by David Gordon Green’s 2018-22 Halloween trilogy.
