Ellie Cornell is an American actress and film producer. In the Halloween series, she is known for the role of Rachel Carruthers.


During production of Halloween 4's rooftop chase, Ellie Cornell was injured by a protruding nail which cut her stomach open as she slid down the roof. After a quick trip to the local hospital and some stitches, she finished the scene with her bandages in place. According to Danielle Harris, "It didn't even faze her."

The shoot lasted about 41 days and Cornell and Harris were required to be on set for 36 of those.

Ellie Cornell would later go on to play the role of Detective Janet Wright in the TV series Femme Fatales, which aired on Cinemax from 2011 to 2012.
