WHERE ARE THEY NOW?
The legendary Doug Bradley, who donned the pins and makeup of Pinhead for eight of the nine 'Hellraiser' films, has become a cult icon in the genre. Bradley was originally going to take the role of one of the movers in the first 'Hellraiser' film, but opted for the Lead Cenobite instead, and the rest, they say, is history. He is very close friends with Clive Barker, and the two have worked together on many projects over the years, including 'Night Breed' (1990), 'Salome & The Forbidden' (1998), and founding the 'Dog Company' progressive theatre group in London. Bradley is one of only five actors to play the same horror character on at least six consecutive occasions, joining Sir Christopher Lee (Count Dracula), Robert Englund (Freddy Krueger), Warwick Davis (Leprechaun), Brad Dourif (Chucky) and Tobin Bell (Jigsaw). His most recent genre fare includes 'Pumpkinhead: Ashes To Ashes' (2006), 'Wrong Turn 5: Bloodlines' (2012), 'Shame The Devil' (2013), and 'Death House' (2014). In addition to his on-screen work, Doug has performed narrations on several songs by English extreme metal band, Cradle of Filth, as well as contributing guest vocals to their 2008 album 'Godspeed On The Devil's Thunder', on all songs except 'Tragic Kingdom'. Forever a student of the acting craft, Doug is also the author of the book 'Sacred Masks: Behind The Mask Of The Horror Actor', which explores the history of masks in society and their applications in horror films. A regular on the convention circuit, Bradley is rumored to be working with Clive Barker on a re-make of the original 'Hellraiser' film. He lives in London with his wife Lynne, two children, and a cat.
Ashley Laurence, who played the innocent role of Kirsty Cotton in 'Hellraiser', returned to appear in three other 'Hellraiser' films- 'Hellbound: Hellraiser II' (1988), 'Hellraiser III: Hell On Earth' (1992), and 'Hellraiser: Hellseeker' (2002).

She's been featured in national television commercials for Geico as well as having been the sexy Coors Light 'Beerman' in one of the company's national ad campaigns. Ashley has gone on to achieve a cult status among fans who enjoyed her early work in the 'Hellraiser' films, and was featured in the 2004 E! True Hollywood Story episodes, 'Scream Queens' and 'The 100 Greatest Scary Moments'. She is a regular on the convention circuit, and is always eager to meet with her fans and discuss the genre.
