Scout Taylor-Compton Biography

  • Profession: Actor
  • Born: Jan 1, 0001
  • Died: Jan 1, 0001

American actress Scout Taylor-Compton debuted as an ingenue, appearing on several television series in guest and recurring roles during the 1990s and 2000s, including [[Feature~V173704~Charmed~charmed[tvseries]]], [[Feature~V179305~ER~er[tvseries]]], and [[Feature~V220900~Gilmore Girls~gilmoregirls[tvseries]]]. She then segued into feature roles in the mid-2000s, with memorable contributions to the [[Performer~P230436~Jennifer Garner~jennifergarner]]-headlined age-swap fantasy [[Feature~V285849~13 Going on 30~13goingon30]], and -- later that same year -- with the all-girl teen comedy [[Feature~V296065~Sleepover~sleepover]] (2004). Taylor-Compton made her biggest splash, however, by essaying the role of Laurie Strode, perpetually stalked slasher victim (and sister of Michael Myers), in [[Performer~P328451~Rob Zombie~robzombie]]'s much-anticipated horror remake [[Feature~V351975~Halloween~halloween]] (2007); the actress inherited the role, of course, from former scream queen [[Performer~P16288~Jamie Lee Curtis~jamieleecurtis]]. Taylor-Compton also made headlines in August 2005 when officially declared "missing" from her family's Apple Valley, CA, home. She was recovered a short time later. ~ Nathan Southern, Rovi
