Kane Warren Hodder was born in Auburn, California. As a child, he was relentlessly bullied and suffered terribly, until he and his family moved to the tiny South Pacific Island Kwajalein, one of the Marshall Islands. Here Kane attended junior and senior high school and loved life on this small jungle island.
When Kane eventually returned to California, he started getting stunt jobs on feature films and then made his way into the acting world, eventually to portray the best known, most memorable and terrifying Jason Voorhees, four consecutive times in the Friday the 13th film franchise.
To date, Kane Hodder has starred in Friday the 13th Part VII: The New Blood, Friday the 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan, Jason Goes to Hell: The Final Friday and Jason X.
Kane is also well known for his role as Victor Crowley in Hatchet, which rolled into the film franchise, Hatchet II and in Hatchet III.
Kane Hodder has starred in hundreds of films and television shows, as well as being stunt coordinator on many hundreds of films. Kane is also a published author.
In the mid 1980’s, Kane was performing a stunt that went horribly wrong, leaving him with second and third degree burns over 40% of his body. It was a long and painful road to recovery. He has the word “Kill!” tattooed on the back of his bottom lip. He is an avid poker player and often plays celebrity tournaments.
Kane spends much of his time, when he is not filming, working with children in burn centers, as well as with numerous charities. Despite the roles he portrays, Hodder is often described as a very kind, compassionate and generous soul, who truly cares for those who suffer life’s cruel blows. He loves and appreciates his fans. Kane also has the most wicked and wonderful comedic timing…a real cut up (pardon the pun!)
