Biography: "Melanie Kinnaman was told that the main requirement for appearing in a Friday the 13th movie was the ability to act terrified. Kinnaman knew better.
'If you go back over all the Friday movies, you notice that the people who make these films love to see blondes running,' enlightens Kinnaman. 'I knew how to run and I was blonde, so I had an edge.'
'People in the industry may deny that they see these movies, but the truth is that they do see them. I received quite a bit of recognition and had a lot of doors open for me.'
Kinnaman claims she would do another Friday film in a minute and has some nice things to say about the series. '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.'" - Fangoria #84 (July, 1989)
