Kristina Klebe Did Voice Work For 'Friday The 13th: The Game'!

There are a number of instances where actors and crew from horror franchise found themselves involved in another. John Buechler's Magical Media Industries provided the effects work for Friday The 13th Part VII: The New Blood (he also directed) and also A Nightmare On Elm Street 4: The Dream Master. Tom McLoughlin directed Jason Lives: Friday The 13th Part VI and also an episode of Freddy's Nightmares. Tom Morga played The Shape in Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers as well as Jason Voorhees in Friday The 13th: A New Beginning. The examples can go on and on, but rarely do see an actor cross franchises from film to video game.

That's what happened with actress Kristina Klebe who played Lynda in Rob Zombie's Halloween (2007) as she revealed to Rue Morgue last week that she is voicing one of the counselors in peril in Friday The 13th: The Game! Kristina lent her voice talents to the character Jenny Myers, an irony that is not lost on us or Halloween fans. In order to get the part, she asked for advise from one of the biggest stars of the Friday The 13th franchise and the man essentially chasing her in the game, Kane Hodder.

From Rue Morgue
I was talking to Kane Hodder at a convention,” she recalls, “and he told me they were doing the game, and I was like, ‘Could I audition for it?’ He told me, ‘Yeah, talk to the guys in charge, send them your tape.’ I audition for a lot of voiceovers, but I almost never get them, because it’s a very small community; the same people tend to get cast over and over, because they can obviously do many different voices. But I sent them my demo, and then I made an audition tape; I was in my closet, screaming my head off—and it was after a convention, so I was already losing my voice! But I got it, and I had a really good time in the studio. I think it’s going to be a great game, from the prototypes I’ve seen.”

Kristina brought a lot of energy and spunk to her role in the Halloween film and we are sure that her contributions to the Friday The 13th game will be equally as great. We would love to see her in a new Friday film. What part would our readers like to see her portray?

Look for Friday The 13th: The Game to release early in 2017.
