Quote: "My birth name is Kevin Blair Spirtas. I grew up in St. Louis, Missouri. As a kid, I performed a lot and sang a lot, and when I was eighteen, around 1981, I went to New York, where I got A Chorus Line, and then I toured with that across the country, which brought me out to Los Angeles. Once I realized there was such a grand opportunity in TV and film, that was really it.|
I remember being called in for a movie called 'Birthday Bash' and I met the director John Carl Buechler. I went in, I read and I left. I really did not think anything of it. Then when I got home that night my agent called me and said, 'They want you for the lead in the new Friday the 13th movie.' I went, 'What Friday the 13th movie?' He goes, 'Well that's the thing you just went in on.' I remember seeing the very first Friday the 13th when I was in high school, and loving it - so when I got cast as Nick in Part VII, I was thrilled." - pg. 176, Crystal Lake Memories
