Personal Life

After graduation from UCLA, she created some eclectic stores which were featured in ‘Top 50 Stores’ in LA.

When it comes to her love life, we do not have too much information. The actress has been involved in relationships with four men, at least that the public is aware of since she likes to keep her private life for herself. Judie dated Grant Show back in 1984, but they broke up after just a year. After that, she apparently fell in love with an actor Kyle Secor and their relationship lasted for four years. In 1999 Judie started dating George Stephanopoulos, but it turned out that this was also a short-term relationship.

In ‘American Ninja’, she landed her first lead role opposite Michael Dudikoff, in this action movie about an American soldier skilled in martial arts who gets attacked by mercenaries in the Philippines. In 1987 she played Sara Duncan in short TV series ‘Pursuit of Happiness’, then in 1989 and 1990 she appeared in the horror movie ‘After Midnight’, and the comedy ‘Color Blue’. In the year 2000, she starred in the sci-fi thriller movie ‘Deep Core’.

Additionally, during her career, Judie has guest-starred in many TV shows, such as “The Powers of Matthew Star”, “Midnight Caller”, “Simon & Simon”, ‘90210’, and “Law and Order”. Since 2006 she has only been involved in one short movie project – “The Secret of 40”, in 2016.

It seems as though Judie has completely dedicated herself to running and promoting her business.

2The death of her character in Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter (1984) was filmed on a cold December night. It was so cold out in the middle of the lake that Judie started crying. Ted White, the stuntman who was playing killer Jason Voorhees, became angry with director Joseph Zito for being so insensitive to her discomfort and threatened to quit if Judie was not given a break from being out in the cold water. She got hypothermia while filming that scene.
