Laurie Strode from Halloween

The ultimate “last girl,” Laurie Strode was one of the first in a long line of female characters who just happened to be the only survivor in horror movies. She didn’t know at the time that Michael Myers, the man hunting her, was actually her brother, but that just made more things interesting later on. She is portrayed in the first film as chaste and somewhat meek, but comes out of her shell later in the series and turns out to be quite a badass. Laurie is iconic for a reason, and Jamie Lee Curtis is one of the original scream queens.
