Actress in the original picture is Janet Leigh who is the mother of Jamie Lee Curtis and she played Marion Crane in Alfred Hitchcock‘s classic 1960 psychological horror thriller Psycho. The two actresses actually appeared on screen together in Halloween: H20. I am re-watching Psycho today!
In the upcoming Fox series Scream Queens, Jamie Lee Curtis recreated her mom’s legendary iconic shower scene from Psycho, and she released the image above giving us our first look. Photo came with this caption.
