Personal Quotes (1)

[recalling her audition for and feelings towards Friday the 13th Part 2 (1981)] I had to show up at the audition and pretend I was walking through the woods, screaming. And it was total typecasting--the outdoorsy, strong girl with blonde hair. And when I got it, it was great. It's nice to be wanted in any capacity, and "Friday the 13th" was cool. I just said, "It's sequel time!"
