Kane Hodder of Friday the 13th and Hatchet

The Total Tutor Neil Haley will interview Kane Hodder of Friday the 13th and Hatchet. Kane Warren Hodder was born in Auburn, California. As a child, he was relentlessly bullied and suffered terribly, until he and his family moved to the tiny South Pacific Island Kwajalein, one of the Marshall Islands. Here Kane attended junior and senior high school and loved life on this small jungle island. When Kane eventually returned to California, he started getting stunt jobs on feature films and then made his way into the acting world, eventually to portray the best known, most memorable and terrifying JASON VORHEES, four consecutive times in the Friday the 13th film franchise. To date, Kane Hodder has starred in Friday the 13th VII: The New Blood, Friday the 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan, Jason Goes to Hell: The Final Friday and Jaxon X.  Kane is also well known for his role as Victor Crowley in Hatchet, which rolled into the film franchise, Hatchet II and Hatchet III. Kane Hodder is the true definition of dichotomy: he is possibly the most beloved horror icon in the film industry, as well as with his millions of fans. Kane towers at 6’3″ and has an intimidating and unforgettable, powerful presence. And a heart of gold. Kane Hodder has starred in more than 200 films and television shows, as well as being stunt coordinator on hundreds of films. Kane is also a published author.
In the mid 1980’s, Kane was performing a stunt that went horribly wrong, leaving him with first and second degree burns over 75% of his body. It was a long and painful road to recovery. He has the word “Kill!” tattooed on the back of his bottom lip. He is an avid poker player and often plays celebrity tournaments.
