Happy Friday the 13th and Tribute to Local Celebrity

Today is Friday the 13th. Did you know that Amy Steele - born and raised in West Chester was in two of the Friday the 13th movie (parts 2 and the Final chapter)? It's a fact. Just click on her name to see the proof on IMDB. As a matter of fact, someone here at the Yak met her years ago because he went to High School with her brother. He met her at the Bar/Restaurant (currently Kildare's) and told her that he wasn't an actor yet, but was waiting for a callback from Wrigley's Spearmint Gum for a commercial. She fell for it.

Here is a clip of the trailer. She is the girl that is shown after the narrator says, "Number 19":

I haven't thought of Amy Steel in years! Along with the Friday the 13th films, hearing her name also makes me think of Family Ties. She played the character who deflowered Alex P. Keaton in an ep. titled Summer of '82.

I actually saw her at the theater in West Goshen Plaza after I saw the movie. She was looking all cool and movie star-like in a leather jacket and high heeled boots.
