Marta Kober's Mugshot from Bedford, Oregon


Over the years there had been many stories about Marta in the Friday the 13th community and what she was up to. For a stint, she seemed to have had some substance problems and run-ins with the law. I hope that she has gotten her life back in order.

According to North Bend, Oregon police reports where she was arrested for criminal trespassing, she was listed as a transient. She had also been living in Hawaii and now seems to be living in Alaska. According to Craigslist ads from Juneau, she is looking for a man!

In the recent years she has been attending conventions more often, and now does side work in housekeeping and "errand running" according to her Thumbtack profile.

Thanks Brandon for the tip!

  1. Oh you're welcomed Jack my good man. ;-) And yeah according to many reports for a while - according to one 'trash movie' fan site we can all Yahoo! look up or Google search - she was also in the Portland area for a while, badly strong out on something or another substance wise, and two posters on the forum confirmed that it was indeed her often seen with (unfortunately) dried feces (shit) on the back of her older style sweat pants, looking for odd jobs.

    And yeah I saw her brief convention videos of her. I was QUITE shocked I must say by her mugshot, now. I have a rare out of print mid '90s Playboy TV produced 'sketch' of softcore adult segments on a DVD from Amazon & one of the skits features her. And she did some rare, stunning nudity. She still looked good in the flannel-clad mid '90s years.

    A respectful note to all female Friday franchise fans: PLEASE stay away from excessive drinking if you're a woman & hard drug usage. She was honestly one of the hottest "natural, girl-next-door-looking" Princesses of the original franchise, and she looks almost double her age now. I hope she gets a solid balanced out life fairly soon. This update about her on Craigslist was unique!! A big thanks my good man; holy shit & I thought that I knew a lot about this series & its original first 8 films/Paramount-era of its actors. : ) Happy hunting for info!

    1. What the fuck are you talking about, dude? "...looks almost double her age..." Well, no shit. She's almost 60! Did you think you'd expect her to look like she did in Part 2 for her mugshot, co'mon, man...Jesus.

    2. Wrong. Marta was 50 years old last October.

    To Anonymous: Dude man, chill it. Calm it the fuck down, bro. Sweet Christ.

    Anyway: Are you blind, eh? Several of the old school Paramount franchise female alumni look two or three times 'better' then her. Now of course I did not expect her to look the same way that she looked filming in Kent, Connecticut in the late Fall of 1980 for Christ our saviors sakes now. lol But it is quite obvious form the convention videos & the few recent online photos of her that she is NOWHERE near as nice looking as: Dana Kimmell, Kimberly Beck, Amy Steel, Jennifer Cooke, Adrianne King, Melanie Kinnaman and several notable, just as obscure as her (Kober) others.

    I'm sorry but I have a used/like new mid 90s shot playboy TV shot "late nite softcore" DVD which features a small storyline with her in it & with rare nudity from her, and she still looked as she was aging gracefully a full decade 1/2 later & she looked radiant, sensual, ect. She looks like she is almost in her in her 70s to me.

    Drugs are bad, mm' okay ladies? : (

  3. BrandonThyName, your assessment of Marta Kober is close enough. She is one year older than me and she definitely looks much, much older than fifty years of age. She isn't the only stunningly beautiful actress whose drug addictions destroyed their looks before their time. Jenny Wright has aged prematurely. Addiction is destructive to everyone concerned an mostly to the person addicted.

    1. Regarding Jenny Wright, my girlfriend was really close with her in the late 80s and early 90s. She told me the same thing and basically summed it up, that she was lucky to be alive. She hung around with a lot of the 80s and 90s musicians like Janes Addiction, and got heavy into drugs with that scene. My g/f also said she went bat-shit insane from the drugs, and ended up on the streets prostituting when she lost contact with her. Sad case.

    2. I was just re-reading over this and saw your posts from this past Christmas season. Big thanks bro Yeah, agree'd with my original assessment: She looks twelve or more years FAR too older, and much more haggered.

      And yup, I looked over convention photos of Jenna Wright when on a message board last year, there was a discussion of cult/b-movie actresses aging horrible and I saw three of her's. UGH. To think in Near Dark (1987) and the Tibor Takas directed I, Madmad I used to lust after her as a young lad. Not to mention her seductive roles also in The Lawmower Man and of course Young Guns II (with her rare backside nudity).

      And yeah I also heard that. Before I got the blu ray of Near Dark I noted her oddball interview text snippet on the older Near Dark DVD second disc and she sounded unusually flaky to me, like "on drugs or around real losers" So saddening how she looks now, agreed.

      So sad that she eventually sold her, and not even in the usual "socially acceptable prostitution of adult film industry shit", but out on the streets. And yeah she seems spacey, indeed so sad man.

      People need to stay away from drugs, she was SUCH a unique, quietly tempting hottie.

  4. I was living in Oregon back in 2012 and met Marta over on the Oregon Coast. She said she was in Friday part II, so I drove over and had to meet her, since I was such a huge fan of the series back when I was a kid. I met her on Craigslist, and exchanged a few emails before finally meeting up. The pic she had on CL must have been from 20 years earlier, because this woman was in bad shape. Many years of heavy Meth use would be my guess...She was in Outer Space!!

    1. Such a shame. I knew Marta in the 90's, and she was heavy into drinking and drugs. Too bad she is less than a year older than Sandra Bullock, a woman she had a great likeness to, and now Marta looks like a disheveled and destroyed shell of a human being.

    A big thanks to the other Anonymous now. I (like many) have heard of these stories originally form that "Trash Cinema" compactor site when you look up her name or whatever and yeah, must say its so sad that she threw her life away on hard drugs.

    Its oh-so-sad with how she turned out. Its to my understanding in the mid to late '80s she tried to be a recording artist of dance-pop music before the '90s hit and she possibly got introduced to hard, illegal drugs through that whole "scene". I really wonder how she would have turned out had she not been an addict. She was such a hottie as a young lass. A damn shame about he demons now...

  6. I knew Marta in our early 20s. I miss the fun loving person she was. I am glad she is still alive as I have wondered what happened to her. Wishing her all the best!

  7. In the mid 90's I dated a talent agent who represented her. She was cute back then, although did seem high on something. She was going by a pseudonym, Cherry something or other for a new rap career. She was always in roller blades and short shorts.

  8. Marta has been arrested two more times in the last few weeks in Portland, Oregon.

    It has her being charged with Hit & Run, Reckless Driving, Failure to Appear, ect.

    You can find them searching her full name Marta Denise Kober.

  9. She was in Juneau, AK in the summer of 2015 hanging out with the street people for a couple months looking strung out for sure. There is a pretty heavy drug scene for such a small city. Didn't see her after the summer tourist season was over.
