For Kane Hodder, the actor in the Jason Vorhees mask in the ‘Friday the 13th’ movies, there’s nothing unlucky about a Friday the 13th … he says the day changed his life.
Kane, who has played the killer character in four of the franchise’s 12 installments, tells TGG … the so-called bad luck day is actually a transformative occasion in his Hollywood career.
As Kane explains, ‘Friday the 13th’ took his career to the next level … transforming him from a stunt man into a horror movie star who signs autographs for adoring fans.
Kane says he’s had nothing but the best luck on Friday the 13th … a feeling that’s quite uncommon and he adds the worst thing that’s ever happened to him on the 13th was when he was burned when a fire stunt went wrong, but it wasn’t a Friday.
It’s not just the movie role brightening Kane’s Friday the 13th experience … he says this Friday, which fell on May’s 13th, saw him fatten his pockets … thanks to a spike in his requests on Cameo.
Kane also tells us why playing Jason is more difficult than one might think … and why he wants to get killed by the famous character if the franchise ever makes a 13th movie.
