Biography: Jeannine Taylor did alot of stage work before appearing in Friday the 13th in 1980. She also appeared as a minor character in the TV movie, The Royal Romance of Charles and Diana. Afterwards she appears to have retired from acting to pursue another career.

Update: It was recently reported that Jeannine Taylor is living in New York with her husband where she works a lot with charities and has performed in several plays under her married name.

Quote: "I had the bug pretty early. I began to take voice lessons at age 14 and then sang in school assemblies and at the church and community events. Then I got some parts in school plays, and began to yearn to be a serious actress. Right after college I immediately moved to New York. I couldn't wait. I had the great good fortune to work with really fabulous, renowned artists very early. I was incredibly lucky. I was living many American girls' dreams.

But as far as acting in major motion pictures… frankly, I didn't think I was pretty enough. I wasn't tall and blonde - I didn't ever think of myself in that way. It was kind of a fluke, really. Barry Moss and Julie Hughes (casting directors) were a big part of my auditioning for Friday the 13th because they were very well regarded - as they both still are. I was very confident that any part that came through that office would be a good opportunity. I didn’t even really think of this movie as a horror film. To me, this was a small independent film about some very carefree teenagers who are having a rip-roaring time at a summer camp where they happen to be working as counselors. Then they just happen to get killed." - pg. 20, Crystal Lake Memories
