Nancy Louise Kyes (born December 19, 1949) is an American film and television actress. In most of her film appearances, she is credited under her stage name Nancy Loomis. She is known for her role as the teenage babysitter, Annie Brackett, in John Carpenter's 1978 horror classic slasher film Halloween.
Before starring in Halloween, she played Julie in the 1976 thriller Assault on Precinct 13, also directed by Carpenter. In addition to acting, she served as this film's wardrobe mistress, but she used a different name for the film credits ("Louise Kyes" for the wardrobe mistress credit and "Nancy Loomis" for her acting credit).
In 1980, Kyes played the role of Sandy Fadel in Carpenter's hit horror film The Fog, in which she appeared with her Halloween co-star Jamie Lee Curtis, her Assault on Precinct 13 co-star Darwin Joston, and Charles Cyphers, who appeared with Kyes in both Halloween and Assault on Precinct 13.
In 1981 Kyes filmed a new scene to be inserted into the television version of Halloween, and filmed a brief cameo appearance for Halloween II. Kyes had a small role in Halloween III: Season of the Witch (1982) as the ex-wife of the lead character, played by Tom Atkins. This makes her the first person to appear in the first three Halloween films, although Jamie Lee Curtis does return for a voice-only cameo as the voice of a telephone operator.
Although she has starred in a few TV movies, her only guest appearance on television was on the 1985 revival of The Twilight Zone.
After retiring from acting she worked as a sculptor in the Los Angeles area.
Kyes was married to producer, screenwriter and director Tommy Lee Wallace, with whom she has two children. They are divorced.
