He has appeared in over a hundred films and television shows throughout his thirty year career. He played Jason Voorhees in four of the “Friday The 13th” films (7,8,9,10), “Hatchet,” playing Victor Crawley and to many horror fans, Kane is Jason! He is the legendary icon behind the mask. The legendary actor, stuntman, producer is now an author.

Janel: You have a legendary status, how do you feel when you see the fans dressed as one of the character’s you have played?
Kane: I still feel that it was an incredible honor to have played Jason in the four movies that I did. I am very lucky. It’s very cool to see people dressed as Jason even now, because it is amazing to think that possibly they like the character in part, due to my performance.
Janel: What prompted you to want to write a book and tell your story?
Kane: I have always gotten incredible reactions from people when I have told them about certain parts of my life and career, so for a while now I have considered telling my story. Adam Green had been suggesting that I do a book, and then I talked to Mike and just had a gut feeling that he was the guy to write it for me, and here we are.
Janel: What was the most challenging experience you had while writing the book with Michael?
Kane: The only challenge that we have faced is getting the time to be together to do the book in the first place. I live in Ca. and he lives in Ma. Of the time we have spent together, it has been rather effortless to document my story.
Janel: If they made a film about your life, who would you want to play you?
Janel: Of all the legendary characters you play, which one do you most relate to and why?
Kane: To any of the violent ones, because as I have said before, (and I mean it), my real personality is much closer to the maniacs I play than the average person’s personality.
Janel: Who and what inspires you in life?
Kane: My sons Jace and Reed. Enough said.
Janel: Do you have any advice for those who want to become actors, stunt men/women or the writers of the world?
Kane: I always say to follow your dream if you truly want to pursue one of these careers. Don’t let anyone talk you out of it. BUT, be prepared to possibly starve for a long time before the success happens.
Janel: Will you ever play Jason again or possibly become involved in another “Friday The 13th” if there is one?
Kane: I never wanted to stop playing Jason in the first place. The decision was made by someone else. That hurt pretty bad, but I would still welcome the chance to don that mask again and create more carnage.
Janel: You have done everything from Stunts, Acting, Producer, Ghost Hunter, Author, and Legend? What comes next?
Kane: A musical?
Janel: If you could direct a film in any genre? What would you choose and why?
Kane: I would definitely direct a comedy, because I’m a funny motherf****r!
