Adrienne King — 2008 IHSFF Hall of Fame Inductee



Adrienne was born in and raised Oyster Bay, Long Island, did her first commercial when she was six months old, and has stayed at it with a brief hiatus or two ever since. She has also studied voice and dance, being continually involved in some phase of show business. She has done numerous television and radio commercials.

Adrienne is also a member of the Joseph Jefferson Theatre Company. Her professional credits include summer stock and off-Broadway productions including “W.H. Auden”. After the success of Friday the 13th (1980), she appeared in its sequel and then became a voice actress (with voice roles in What’s Eating Gilbert Grape (1993), While You Were Sleeping (1995), and many others). Her return to acting took place in 2008 with the science fiction/horror film Walking Distance (2009).

The Friday the 13th Phenomenon One of the longest-running horror film series began with this gory shocker. Entrepreneur Steve Christie re-opens Camp Crystal Lake after many years during which it has been cursed by murders and bad luck. The young and nubile counselors all begin to die extremely bloody deaths at the hands of an unseen killer during a rainstorm which isolates the camp. Friday the 13th made over 20 million dollars at the box office and spawned numerous sequels.
