Jill Schoelen BiographyA more unconventional husky-voiced "scream queen" heroine of the 1980s was Jill Schoelen, daughter of well-known fashion designer Dorothy Schoelen. Born and raised in Burbank, she studied at the Acting for Life Theatre in Burbank and started off on TV as a teen in the Fame-influenced TV pilot called Best of Times starring the up-and-coming http://www.platinum-celebs.com/index.php/argumentative-essay-about-smoking/ and Crispin Glover. She gained in experience with a number of innocuous films geared mostly toward the young, including D.C. Cab, Thunder Alley and Hot Moves. The dark-eyed, black-haired pretty with the trademark bangs wouldn't find her horror niche until hooking up with Wes Craven and his TV movie Chiller. From there she scored big with the cult shocker The Stepfather wherein she played the resourceful stepdaughter terrorized by the lecherous, meek-appearing Terry O'Quinn as the title monster.
The sleeper hit put Jill on the map with a seemingly solid future, continuing on with Phantom of the Opera: The Motion Picture, this time keeping company opposite Freddy Krueger inhabiter Robert Englund as her deranged pursuer. But a few bumps in the road with such lowgrade fodder as The Bite, Cutting Class and Popcorn put a permanent damper on her career, despite coming back with a bit of grit in the thriller TV movie When a Stranger Calls Back. Her object-of-a-stalker days behind her after filming Not Again!, she settled comfortably back and raised two children with husband/musician/composer Anthony Marinelli.
