Cassandra Peterson


Cassandra Peterson is most famous for originating and popularizing her role as Elvira, Mistress of the Dark, which started on the show MOVIE MACABRE, a weekly horror film presentation that Cassandra hosted. The character's popularity spread wildly, leading to dozens of television appearances and two full length films: ELVIRA, MISTRESS OF THE DARK and ELVIRA'S HAUNTED HILLS. Cassandra has also appeared on television shows such as CHiPS, ST. ELSEWHERE, HAPPY DAYS, THE FALL GUY, and FANTASY ISLAND and movies including PEE-WEE'S BIG ADVENTURE and CHEECH AND CHONG'S NEXT MOVIE, though most of her acting credits continue to be playing the character of Elvira.
