Foster played by Robey
is the niece of Louis Vendredi. In the first episode,
she inherited the store "Vendredi's Antiques",
along with Ryan, from her dead uncle. Micki was vehemently
against keeping the store. She wanted to get back to
her fiance and her life. Robey played Micki for the
entire series. And the series producers were happy to
be able to pull her away from her modeling career for
the role. Robey's real name is Louise Robey. She became
a Countess in 1994 by marrying a Count in the UK. They
divorced in 2001, but share custody of a son, James.

Marshak played by Chris
is an old friend of Lewis'. He first encounters Micki
and Ryan while sneaking around Vendredi's Antiques
trying to find out what happened to Louis. In the
first episode Jack informs Micki and Ryan of what
they have inadvertently done by selling off everything
in the store. Chris played Jack Marshak for the entire
series. His "grandfatherly" wisdom added
the conservative dimension to the series. You get
the feeling that without Jack, Micki and Ryan would
have long ago died. ;^) With the exception of R.G.
Armstrong, Chris was the film veteran. Visit Chris'

Dallion played by John
is a distant cousin of Micki Foster. In the first
episode, he inherited the store "Vendredi's Antiques",
along with Micki, from Micki's dead uncle. Ryan wanted
to keep the store for the "neat" objects
they found in it. John D. LeMay played Ryan for the
first two seasons of the show. Fangoria stated that
the creative forces felt that some new blood (no pun
intended) was necessary to sustain a third season
of episodes. (Fangoria Horror Spectacular, October
1991, #4) So Ryan was reduced to a 10 year old and
left the show. There were also rumors about John wanting
to move on as an actor. Visit John's

Ventura played by Steve
was introduced to us near the end of the second season
in the episode "Wedding Bell Blues". Johnny
was the potential love interest for Micki, with the
devil-may-care attitude. He didn't quite get the hang
of cursed item retrieval as quickly as Micki and Ryan
did. Several episodes were devoted to bad judgement
he made on some items. Steven played Johnny for a
couple episodes in the second season and all of the
last season. Unfortunately, he never really caught
on as the new male lead and the show decided to quit
while they were ahead. There were a few moments of
sexual tension between Micki and Johnny, but much
less than your normal daytime soap. ;^) Visit Steve's

of "The Sweetest Sting",
and "Jack in the Box": David
has been making films since he was 10 years old. For
the series, he showcases his talent in three very
fine episodes. One method that separates him from
some other F13:TS alumni is that he prefers to let
the viewers imagination visualize the graphic event.
This gives a bit of a Hitchcock-like feel to the episodes.
I have always enjoyed that type of film-making philosopy,
probably because I have a very active imagination.
My favorite of the three is "Jack in the Box".
It has some very emotional moments of tenderness amidst
the horror. Sci-Fi fans may also recognize his work
from several episodes of Andromeda and Earth: Final
Conflict. For more information, please visit David's

of "Faith Healer": David
the most famous director that worked on Friday the
13th: The Series was David Cronenberg. His most popular
film up to that time was "The Fly" starring
Jeff Goldblum and Gena Davis.
He would later direct the reality-bending "Existenz",
my favorite Cronenberg movie. It has a style that
is uniquely David Cronenberg's.
