Ellie Cornell (born December 15, 1963) is an American actress and movie producer, known primarily for her roles in horror films. After her marriage to producer Mark Gottwald, she is sometimes credited as Ellie Gottwald. Cornell graduated from Rollins College in Winter Park, Florida in 1986. Cornell has also made small guest (non-recurring) appearances on two television series: Gabriel's Fire and Thirtysomething and in made-for-TV movies. She starred in the 1988 comedy film Married to the Mob, but her most famous role came shortly afterwards in the horror film hits Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers and Halloween 5: The Revenge of Michael Myers as Rachel Carruthers. Cornell has become something of an icon among fans of the Halloween series. Fans writing to various web sites have called her the best heroine in a Michael Myers film. Many have said they even liked her character better than the one Jamie Lee Curtis played in the original. This is the greatest compliment that can be given to an actress in a Halloween film. After her initial success in the late 1980s, Cornell disappeared from films. She eventually rejoined the industry by being the executive producer of 1998's Free Enterprise and 2000's The Specials. (She also had acting roles in each of those films.) Her disappearance was so complete that she was even featured in a VH1 "Where Are They Now?" special. In 2003, she returned to her horror roots by appearing in House of the Dead and as of 2005 is slated to appear in four more horror films through 2006. She nearly broke out of her horror film typecasting by appearing in 1992's A League of Their Own, but she had to drop out of the film when she became pregnant. She and her husband, Mark Gottwald, have two daughters named Grace and Rose. She is also co-founder of Mindfire Entertainment. She and her husband also own Ship's Inn, a restaurant in Massachusetts.
