Russell Todd - "Scott"

Biography: Born in Albany, NY, as Russell Gold, he frequently did modeling as a young man, which helped him start a film and television career. He went to Syracuse University where he was a Directing major.
Russell Todd has been a memorable part of the soap opera scene, appearing in Another World, The Bold and the Beautiful and The Young and the Restless. He is no longer acting.
Quote: "My first real acting gig came from reading Backstage, and there was an ad for this movie called He Knows You're Alone, which was Tom Hanks' first movie. In the opening of the movie, I'm making out with a girl in a car and you hear this tapping outside, and then I get killed. She screams and then you realize that it's a movie within a movie. Eventually I got an agent and he set me up on Part 2.|
I had seen the first Friday the 13th. It is what it is. There was no pretense or anything. And even though it was a horror film, to me, that wasn't a negative. To be part of something that was popular and a sequel was exciting. I don't know if people felt the same when they were doing Part V, VI or VII. Being part of something that was really recognizable, whether people thought it was a quality film or not, it was something that would last and be remembered." - pg. 54, Crystal Lake Memories
