Personal Quote:

I really feel the Friday the 13th films are among the better examples of the horror genre. I felt that even doing Part V made me part of a classic film series. See more »


Originally, she had signed on to star in the sixth Friday the 13th film, Jason Lives: Friday the 13th Part VI (1986). The idea was that the sixth film would be a direct sequel to Friday the 13th: A New Beginning (1985). However, the producer later changed his mind and decided to take the film in a different direction. See more »
