Cassandra "Elvira" Peterson on her career and Halloween influence as Elvira

Her name is Cassandra Peterson, better you probably know her better as Elvira - Mistress of the Dark - probably the most famous Halloween character ever since Dracula. She's rocked the giant wig, the tailored black dress and glossy black nail polish for 36 years now.

Elvira's has appeared on countless TV shows, hosted her own, starred in two movies. Since 1983, she's appeared live on stage at Knott's Berry Farm for a special nightly Halloween performance. This year marks her last ever performance there.

Where'd it all start? Back in 1981. Peterson had just been hired to host the spooky B-Movie TV show Movie Macabre. In those late night episodes, sprawled out on a red velvet couch and wearing all black, Cassandra Peterson became Elvira.

Cassandra joins Jesse to talk about her career as Elvira and the character's impact on her fans.

You can keep up to date with Cassandra Peterson on her website.
