In the final moments of John Carpenter's 1978 classic horror movie Halloween, Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis) lifts Michael Myers' mask to reveal actor Tony Moran underneath. His face was only visible for several seconds, but it was enough time to make Tony Moran a cult icon among horror movie fans. Every year he appears at numerous horror conventions, where he signs autographs and poses with fans.

In an interview, Tony said, "I was starting to act when I was about nineteen-years-old. I actually started when I was about nine, but I quit after one commercial because I hated it. So I got back into acting when I was nineteen or twenty-years-old and I had an agent who was my little sister's agent. (His little sister is Erin Moran, who played Joanie on "Happy Days") She had called me up for an interview and actually apologized. She said, "Well the only thing I got right now is this B horror flick interview for you and you would play a psycho". That was all I knew. I didn't know about a mask or anything like that."

That B Horrir Flick turned out to be the classic Halloween!

Tony does appreciate his fans, and appears at horror events where he meets fans and signs photos and DVDs, action-figure boxes, masks, and other Michael Myers related items.

You can currently see Tony in the film Beg, and the upcoming films, Bind and Stingy Jack!
