Cassandra Peterson Facts

  1. When she was one and a half years old, she had an accident where she was scalded by boiling water that led to her requiring skin grafts to over 35% of her body and she had to spend 3 months in the hospital. She has recalled that she was made fun of at school over her scars and has jokingly added that her Elvira costume has shown only the unscathed parts. She has gone on to point out that everybody who grew up being bullied and did not fit in socially for some reason, has identified with Elvira who was teased mercilessly when she was a kid when she did not have many friends, with even her best friend being considered to be strange by the other children, which would make them just keep to themselves.
  2. Cassandra has revealed that from a young age, she used to find herself drawn to horror-themed toys, rather than the usual dolls that most girls of her age played with. That attraction to the theatrical, larger-than-life quality of horror may have been fueled by the fact that her mother used to run a costume shop, where young Cassandra often was her model and she enjoyed the fantasy element that came from dressing up in different costumes and as popular television characters of the time. She has disclosed that she always knew she would grow up and have a job that would require her to be in costume.
  3. Elvis Presley had given her career advice.
