Candyman: Who Plays The Character Helen Lyle?
Cassie Kramer plays the character, Helen Lyle. She is the reincarnation of the Candyman’s lover, Caroline Sullivan. Years ago, as Caroline Sullivan, she was able to defeat the Candyman after sacrificing herself to save Anthony when he was a baby.
Sullivan became a vengeful spirit herself. Anyone could summon her if they said her first name five times facing a mirror while openly denying her existence. Virginia Madsen previously portrayed the character.
