Lion King Tour Star Jelani Remy on Protecting His School from Evil Invasions on Halloween

Halloween is the most theatrical holiday, so it makes perfect sense that Broadway actors—who know a thing or two about rocking a costume—would embrace the spooky season. We asked your favorite stage stars to share their memories of yummy treats, silly tricks and the best and worst costumes they ever wore. Read on for inspiration, and Happy Halloween!

JELANI REMY (Simba in the national tour of The Lion King)

What was your favorite Halloween costume of all time, and how old were you when you wore it?
Hands down, it had to be when I was a Mighty Morphin’ Power Ranger. I was the Blue Ranger, Billy. I also had the Ranger gloves that made karate chop sounds! I was seven and felt like I protected my school from any evil invasions that day.

What’s your favorite Halloween candy, and why?
Candy corn. Aside from being absolutely delicious, it's a Halloween classic! Also, it’s usually only around during the Halloween season.

What is your favorite Halloween horror movie, and why?
Spice World. You know why.
