Cassandra Peterson - Elvira

This year actress Cassandra Peterson is celebrating the 40th Anniversary of Elvira!

A few years ago Patrick sat down with The Mistress of the Dark in this candid, in-depth interview about her life and career which she reveals in her new best-selling book “Yours Cruelly, Elvira Memoirs of the Mistress of the Dark”.

In 1981, Cassandra auditioned for the part of “horror hostess” on a local Los Angeles station. That show, Movie Macabre, and her newly created character, Elvira, became an overnight sensation and gained national syndication. Peterson also co-wrote, produced, and starred in two feature length films: Elvira, Mistress of the Dark and Elvira’s Haunted Hills. She has spent four decades solidifying her unique brand and building it into an internationally recognized pop culture icon synonymous with Halloween and the horror genre.
