For over 40 years, Michael Myers has been one of those horror villains who just keeps coming back. With the exception of the third film, Halloween III: Season of the Witch, Myers has been the antagonist in every Halloween movie since the original. Many of the actors who have played the masked killer were stunt performers, while a handful of Myers’s actors played unmasked versions of the villain.
In total, 10 actors have played Myers, four of whom played the role in more than one movie in the franchise. Judging by the enduring popularity of this iconic series, there are sure to be more Michael Myers actors should the franchise continue after Halloween Ends — the latest confirmed film in the series — releases in 2022. With Halloween Kills on the horizon, now is the perfect time to take a look back at everyone who has been behind the mask over the past decades. Keep reading for more info about everyone who has played the horror icon so far.
