My newest interview subject, Tiffany Helm, is a very diverse talent. Growing up in the entertainment industry, Tiffany entered film after some time spent as a model. If you love cult classic cinema of the 80s, then you’ll recognize Tiffany from movies like Friday The 13th, Part V: A New Beginning, Reform School Girls, and O.C. and Stiggs. She would also act in the classic 90s computer game Rama, and is currently active as a photographer, as well as working on the occasional independent film. Ahead of her appearance at the Chiller Theatre convention later this month, Tiffany and I talked recently about her wide-ranging career. I hope you all enjoy our interview.
Friday The 13th: A New Beginning
I started my 2019 interview season on Thursday, January 10th when I spoke to actress Melanie Kinnaman. Melanie is the 2nd actress from Friday The 13th: Part V that I’ve had the pleasure of interviewing, the first being Deborah Voorhees last year. In addition to Friday The 13th: Part V, Melanie Kinnaman has worked on movies like Thunder Alley and TV shows like Saturday Night Live. She’s also an accomplished dancer and a former model, and we discussed all that and more in this conversation.
My newest interview subject, Deborah Voorhees, is the first talent from the Friday The 13th franchise that I’ve interviewed for Pop Geeks. Deborah played Tina in Friday The 13th Part V: A New Beginning, but that’s not the only connection she has to the world of horror. In recent years, Ms. Voorhees, after spending time as a journalist and a teacher, has returned to the field of film as both a writer and director, and she’s gone from being scared of horror films to directing and writing them. We discussed all of this and more on Thursday, August 2nd, and I hope you all enjoy getting to know her.
