|Kirsten Baker and JOresky at Blood on the Beach|
JOresky shared some convention photos of his visit to the Blood on the Beach convention in Virginia Beach, and one of the photos caught my eye. It was the photo of he and the beloved Kirsten Baker of Friday the 13th: Part II. I can't say she is a "favorite" actress of mine, but I do really love a lot of the movies that she was in like Teen Lust, Gas Pump Girls, California Dreaming, and of course Friday the 13th: Part II. She seems to have stopped acting around 1987, so her resume is short.
I remember how all of us Friday the 13th fans used to wonder where she was at and often debated it; saying that rumors were she was working an a Los Angeles art gallery. One thing someone said stuck in my head and it's how awful she has aged and they showed a photo of Kirsten from Gas Pump Girls with blonde hair (that movie was shot before Friday the 13th: Part II, anyways).
Well, I can safely say that Kirsten has aged gracefully and is still as beautiful as she was when we saw her on the shores of Crystal Lake in 1981.
