Mistress of the dark, Elvira, has announced that she’s retiring as a live performer after nearly fifty years in the entertainment industry.
She's set to appear in her final show at Knott's Berry Farm tonight, where she's been headlining Halloween performances for 21 years.
She said, "I just decided that, you know, doing live shows is really difficult and it takes up a big chunk of time every year." Although the 66-year-old horror actress is finished with on-stage performances, the queen of Halloween says she isn't hanging up her sexy black gown for good just yet. She said, "I would love to be back on TV with a regular show. We'll see how it goes. And maybe in between there, have a life."
She also said she's working on an animated TV show and an autobiography.
