Steve Dash (Jason Voorhees, Friday the 13th Part 2) Hamilton Comic Con 2017 Full Panel

Steve Dash, Jason Voorhees in Friday the 13th Part 2, gives a very frank Q & A panel with a room full of fans at the 2017 Hamilton Comic Con.

Steve Daskewisz, also known as Steve Dash or Steve Daskawisz, is an actor known for his role as a stunt double supporting the fictional serial killer Jason Voorhees in the film Friday the 13th Part 2. A former cop who worked as a stuntman and actor beginning in 1977, he had small roles in Wolfen and The Jazz Singer. That led to work on Sylvester Stallone’s Nighthawks where he met Cliff Cudney. Cudney hired him to replace Warrington Gillette who was originally scheduled to play Jason in Friday the 13th Part 2.

Friday the 13th Part 2, marketed as Friday the 13th Part II, is a 1981 American slasher film produced and directed by Steve Miner, and the second installment in the Friday the 13th film series. It is a direct sequel to Friday the 13th, picking up five years after that film’s conclusion, where a new murderer stalks and begins murdering the camp counselors at a nearby training camp in Crystal Lake. The film marks the first time Jason Voorhees is the killer; his mother was the killer in the previous film. It also features the brief return of Alice Hardy, who is currently the only Friday the 13th heroine to return in a sequel.
