Amy Steel‘s Ginny is the “final girl” in Part II, throughout which she, filled with nerves from the mad shoot, unintentionally knocked a machete down on stuntman Steve Daskewisz’s finger. “And I was so horrified,” Steel remembered to The Line Up. “We went to the emergency room, and he’s dressed as Jason, and I was mortified. And he just said, ‘Are you kidding this is great! Another scar!'”

Like King, she too needed to movie her climactic scene, in which Jason grabs Ginny and they crash through a window, numerous times. “I was thinking this is the worst moment of my life, and they had to do a lot of re-sets because they had to put the window back together,” Steel stated. “So it would be an hour, hour and a half between takes. I think we did it at least three times. When the director came back a week later and told me we had to do it again, I was so upset.”

She handed down Part III, both due to the fact that she was tired and wished to be taken seriously as a starlet—therefore far, there had actually just been one Jamie Lee Curtis. But Steel called not remaining in it “one of my biggest regrets.”

Steel continued acting however offered it up in the early 2000s and ended up being a household therapist. Asked to share the appeal of scary films from a psychologist’s point of view, she stated, “I think the fear takes you out of your own life, your own problems. It’s an escape. When you’re watching a scary movie, you’re grasping on to the person next to you. I think they bring people together.”
