She is perhaps best known for her role as Ginny Field in the 1981 horror film Friday the 13th Part 2. She was offered the chance to reprise the role for the third film in the long-running series, but was convinced to turn it down by her agent at the time. Steel also starred in the 1986 horror film April Fool’s Day.[1]

Her numerous television roles include a stint on the CBS soap opera Guiding Light as Trudy Wilson from 1980–1981, and as Peggy Warner on All My Children in 1980. Steel also starred in the short-lived television series The Powers of Matthew Star alongside Peter Barton, who went on to appear in Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter and starred in the short-lived television series military drama For Love And Honor. Steel has made guest appearances on various TV series, including Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, Family Ties, CHiPs, The A-Team, Chicago Hope, Quantum Leap, Millennium and JAG.

Amy Steel is alive and well and living in the Pacific Northwest with her husband and an assortment of cats and dogs. She is not currently acting, but if the right project landed on her door step she’d put her psychotherapy practice on hold…..for a moment or two.
